I'm a Celebrity: Extra Camp has lost two of its regular presenting team as Joe Swash and Scarlett Moffatt have both confirmed that they won't be returning to the show this year.

Joe – who won I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! back in 2008 – announced his departure from the series first, sharing a statement on Instagram that revealed he wanted to spend a bit more time at home with his family after he and partner Stacey Solomon welcomed their first child together earlier this year.

"I can't believe I'm about to say this... For 10 incredible years I've been lucky enough to host my favourite show on telly," he wrote.

"Being a part of the I'm a Celebrity After Show has been everything I could have dreamed of and more. But I've come to the decision that this year I'm going to have to leave my jungle family and stay home with my wonderful real family."

He continued: "I don't want to miss a second with Stacey and our amazing boys so 3 months in Australia just seems too make to bare this year [sic]."

Meanwhile, Scarlett took the same approach with her announcement, sharing a statement on Instagram to reveal that she's been working on new projects and will be saying goodbye to jungle life.

"For 3 years I have enjoyed a jungle life, being crowned queen of the jungle and having the greatest time presenting extra camp with Swashy and Joel who I now class as best friends," she wrote.

"The jungle absolutely changed my life and I am massively grateful to everybody who voted for me whilst in the jungle and for your constant support to date and everybody who tuned in to extra camp.

"I have got a project that I've been working on (alongside my family) that I am very very excited to announce soon. And because of this unfortunately I will not be presenting this years extra camp but I will certainly be tuning in LONG LIVE THE JUNGLE."

An ITV spokesperson also confirmed their departures in a statement, saying (via The Huffington Post UK): "We're sad to see Joe and Scarlett go and wish them both all the very best. They'll always be part of the I'm a Celebrity family.

"We'll confirm our I'm A Celebrity Extra Camp presenting line up for the new series nearer transmission."
