Holly Willoughby will not be replaced on I'm A Celebrity

She is here to stay!

After ongoing rumours, ITV have confirmed that Holly Willoughby will not be replaced by another presenter before the end of this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.

It comes after there was uncertainty about her future on the show after some viewers gave her presenting debut a negative reception.

Bookmakers then slashed their odds on Extra Camp host Scarlett Moffatt or another presenter potentially replacing Holly before the end of the series.

However, a representative for the ITV show has called the reports "absolute rubbish".

They told Digital Spy: "We are very happy with Holly presenting alongside Dec".

When it was first announced that Holly, 37, would be standing in for Ant McPartlin she insisted she was only keeping his spot on the show warm for him.

We are very happy with Holly presenting alongside Dec.

Declan Donnelly's usual co-host is currently taking time out of the limelight following his drink-driving conviction earlier this year.

She said "I'm just looking after it until he gets back.

"It's lovely that he trusted me with it. It's totally unexpected to do this. You didn't really want to have to be asked to do the show, it's a weird one."

Ant, 43, who is currently on holiday in a secret location with girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett, 42, is expected to return to TV next year.

Despite some of the negative comments about Holly's debut in the jungle, there have been plenty of fans praising her as "hilarious" and telling her she is a "natural" alongside host Dec, 43.

Holly has been relishing her time on the show so far, exclaiming that she can't believe she is actually in the jungle. And after Emily Atack's Bushtucker trial last night she even joked about keeping one of the iconic yellow stars as a memento!

We think you're doing a brilliant job, Holly.
