Who will Emily Atack be replacing?

The Sun reports that Emily – who has already appeared as a guest on the show – is set to replace the This Morning presenter after 12 years as a team captain.

Holly described her time on Keith Lemon’s quiz show as ’12 years of fantastic chaos’.

In a summer of upheaval, it was announced that Laura Whitmore would also be joining, replacing Mel B.

The show definitely needed a bit of a shake-up and bosses hope Emily and Laura can do that.

The newspaper quotes a source as saying: “The show definitely needed a bit of a shake-up and bosses hope Emily and Laura can do that.

“It’s one of ITV’s biggest brands and there’s still lots of fun to be had with it.

“Keith can’t wait to ­initiate the new team captains into the show and there are plenty of surprises lined up for viewers.”

Ent Daily has contacted reps for Emily for comment.

The show has seen a lot of change in recent years, with original team captain Fearne Cotton leaving in 2018.

During Fearne’s time on Celebrity Juice, she often took series off and was replaced by Kelly Brook and Gino D’Acampo.

After her exit, she was replaced by Paddy McGuinness.

Paddy, 47, was in the hotseat for one series but then left to pursue other projects.

And that’s when Mel B took over for two series.
