'I'm a Celebrity': First look at Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly
This year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! is just a week away. And we’ve got the first look at this year’s hosts: Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby.
Willoughby is stepping in Ant McPartlin’s shoes for the first time, who is taking a break from showbiz after his public drink and drugs battles.
Donnelly published the official press photo on Ant & Dec’s Instagram account with the cheeky caption: “Ant’s looking well don’t you think!? I’m joking of course, Holly and I are looking forward to welcoming you to Australia next Sunday night.”

While many fans are delighted with the shot, with one writing “This gets me through winter can’t wait!” and another “Love holly, I’m sure they will be very entertaining!” many others moaned that they would miss McPartlin.
“Holly I’m sure you will do good I’m sure lovely lady but I’m wishing Ant a speedy recovery so this wonderful double act can get back together and do what they do best,” one wrote.
“I think we are overdosed with Holly. Should have been Stephen Mulhern,” another wrote.
A third bemoaned: “I can just see it now..the endless pranks on Holly so that she’s squealing all the time! Will get very boring..Mark my words…”
ITV has also released the official photos of the series ITV2 spin-off I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp which shows hosts Joel Dommett, Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash.
While the official I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! line-up remains unconfirmed from ITV many of the rumoured contestants have already been pictured arriving in Australia.
To date this includes singer-songwriter Fleur East, football manager Harry Redknapp, DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles and Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer.
I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! stars on Sunday November 18th at 9pm.
