Holly Willoughby reveals final preparations ahead of her I'm A Celebrity stint

She'll be jetting out to Australia very soon

Holly Willoughby has revealed she's busy "doing loads of Christmas shopping" and "sorting out visas and flights" ahead of her I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! co-hosting stint.

The 37-year-old TV presenter is taking the helm of the show this year alongside Dec Donnelly as his presenting partner Ant McPartlin takes a break to focus on his sobriety.

Speaking about her upcoming job Down Under, Holly said she's still got "loads to pack" before heading off to Oz.

Holly told the Mirror: "I am currently doing loads of Christmas shopping and sorting out visas and sorting out flights and sorting out packing and I’ve got lots to pack because I’ve got three kids and a husband and a partridge in a pear tree."

Holly also spoke about the jungle, admitting the phobias of this year's contestants isn't her problem even though she said she's "scared of everything".

She added: "I'm really excited, I can't wait to go. I'm scared of everything, but it's not for me to be worried about that, that's for the celebrities to be worried about, they've signed up for that so it's their problem, not mine."

The presenter also said that she "hopes" she and Dec will make a good team hosting the show.

Holly is preparing to fly out to Australia very soon to fill in for Ant on the show alongside Dec.

The star left presenting duties on This Morning behind last week as she gets ready for the jungle.

I'm not a fan of the uninvited guests but I'm ready to go and I'm excited for the adventure.

Former Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes will be keeping Holly's seat on the daytime show warm while she's away.

Holly previously revealed her three children - Harry, nine, Belle, seven, and Chester, four, - will be coming to Oz with her, which means she's been speaking to their schools about how that will work.

It comes after the first trailer for the new series was unveiled at the weekend.

However, Holly and Dec didn't feature in the trailer but instead the teaser clip follows a young Aussie girl and her father as they hike through the rainforest Down Under and she quizzes him over the legends of the jungle.
