Ant is taking time out from the spotlight to focus on his recovery after pleading guilty to drink driving earlier this year and will be replaced by This Morning’s Holly Willoughby.

She will join Declan Donnelly in Australia to front the ITV show.

A source told The Sun of Nick: “Jungle bosses are delighted they’ve managed to convince Nick to take part. They think he’ll be a great campmate and will be full of stories about his famous pals, including the princes.”

Nick’s representatives have been contacted for comment.

He recently joined Prince William for a special edition of DIY SOS on BBC One, where the team constructed new buildings for those affected by the Grenfell tower block fire.

Previously, both William and his brother Prince Harry appeared on a special episode of DIY SOS that transformed run-down properties in Manchester into homes for veterans.

This will be the first I’m A Celebrity series not to feature Ant.

She said: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure.

“I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery.

“These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit… Honestly, I’m a huge fan of I’m A Celebrity and actually feel like I’ve won a competition to go and hang out on my favourite show!

“When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves?!”

I’m A Celebrity returns to ITV later this year.
