I'm A Celebrity 2019: Extra Camp hosts Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash quit

They both shared news with fans today

It will be all change in the I'm A Celebrity Extra camp this winter, as two of the ITV2 show hosts have quit.

Joe Swash announced earlier on Twitter that he was stepping down from the spin-off show in order to spend time with his family.

He and partner Stacey Solomon welcomed their baby, Rex, earlier this summer.

Joe said in a post on Instagram: "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.

"Being a part of the I’m a Celebrity aftershow 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.

"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.

"I’m so grateful for everything the jungle has given me and for all of the people who have taken me under their wing and given me memories to last a lifetime.

"I’ve made some unbelievable friends… in fact family… in Oz and I’ll miss you all terribly.

"@antanddec thank you boys for showing me how it’s done and keeping me on my toes, I’ll be watching every night, missing you both!

"Well It’s not goodbye forever but just for now. Thanks for the memories @imacelebrity it’s been emotional."

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.

After chatting to one of my besties @realjoeswashy and seeing his insta post I thought I would do mine to. 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. 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 👸🏽 Massive thank you to all the team including Richard, Angela, Toni, pecks and of course @antanddec and @hollywilloughby @joeldommett and @realjoeswashy but 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 🕷#jungle #love #extracamp #imaceleb
