Holly Willoughby has showed off painful looking mosquito bites after wrapping up filming this year’s I’m A Celebrity.
The presenter, 37, joined Dec Donnelly in Australia for three weeks to co-host the hit show and it seems, although she wasn’t actually camping in the jungle, she still suffered from mosquito bites like the campmates.
Holly showed off her toned pins as she modelled for a new fashion campaign in Oz earlier this week.
Holly sported a chic denim skirt with a simple white tee and a pair of white cowgirl ankle boots.
But it was clear to see the critters had attacked Holly’s legs as the sore lumps were on display.
And it wasn’t just mosquitos that bit Holly as she revealed she almost quit after a green ant bite left her in tears.
The mum-of-three’s meltdown was caught on camera but the scenes were never aired.
During an appearance on This Morning via video link, Holly revealed she ran off set and nearly didn’t come back after getting a painful bite from a jungle critter.
She said it happened during the The Jungle Colosseum challenge in which contestants Fleur East and Sair Khan were covered in biting green ants.
Holly explained: “This didn’t make it to air but I actually ran out. One ant bit me and I burst into tears.
“I ran out of the Colosseum and there were the red curtains and I said: ‘Help me!
“I was so embarrassed. Then I just said: ‘Right. You’ve got to pull yourself together now. You can’t run off the telly, you have to stay there and see it through to the end!”
This Morning presenter Holly won over viewers during her I’m A Celebrity stint, with many begging bosses to bring her back next year.
The star was filling in for Ant McPartlin, who has taken the rest of the year off to focus on his sobriety.
Bosses are said to be keen to get Holly to return after 12.1 million viewers tuned in to see Harry Redknapp crowned King of the Jungle.
Bookies have also said Holly is odds-on favourite to return alongside Ant and Dec next year, with Betfair’s Alan Alger saying: “The newly formed duo are our even money favourites to present the show in 2019, with Dec’s regular on-screen partner 7/4 to make it a three-way line-up.”
However Holly’s This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield isn’t keen on losing his “telly wife” again next year, dismissing claims of a return and insisting her role was as a “caretaker” and joking: “Don’t get too attached.”
