Just as things were going out on a high with record ratings and great co-hosting chemistry, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here made a final blunder.

As the ‘Coming Out’ show wound up the recent series, so the credits writer managed to mangle Holly Willoughby’s name as ‘Holly Willougby’.

Viewers leapt on it, of course.

And this was also worth asking…

It did seem a shame, considering some of the gross things she went through on the show (Well, some of the gross things she barely managed to watch others go through).

“I feel very lucky that I’ve had this experience without having to go in and eat anything weird, although I have had stuff crawl over me,” she said on her farewell.

“It’s the most incredible place, you watch it every year and you feel like it’s part of your life. I’ve stepped through the TV screen of one of my favourite TV shows.”

Holly took over from Ant McPartlin as Declan Donnelly’s co-host this year, following Ant’s decision to take a year off TV work.

After some initial concerns from fans, the This Morning host proved a hit with viewers, with Dec even hinting that she could be back next year too.

The series hit record ratings too, with 12.1 million tuning in to watch football legend Harry Redknapp be crowned King of the Jungle.

It’s the highest rated series in the show’s history, averaging 9.1 million viewers per episode.
