Fans have wished her luck

Holly Willoughby will be jetting out to Australia any day now as she gears up for this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

And fans have wished her luck as she revealed a jungle related present from her pal ahead of her stint Down Under.

The This Morning presenter, 37, told her fans a friend has gifted her with a book called Jungle, which features a frog on the cover.

Can't wait to see you Holly, good luck!

Holly posted a boomerang of herself opening the book, alongside the caption: "My lovely friend @ejhughes6 just got me the best going away pressie! #welcometothejungle."

Fans rushed to comment on the post with many wishing her luck ahead of her new job.

One person said: "Good luck Holly you will be amazing," while another wrote: "Can't wait to see you Holly, good luck!"

A third jokingly warned: "Have fun, watch out for the creepy crawlies!"

The new series of the show will return to our screens later this month with Holly co-hosting with Dec Donnelly.

The star is filling in for Ant McPartlin on the show as he takes the rest of the year off to focus on his sobriety.

Holly previously admitted that there's three things she's not looking forward to in the jungle - the eating Bushtucker trial, the smells of the trials and when contestants come out of the trials with creepy crawlies all over them.

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

Meanwhile, Holly may be used to early starts and journeys to the studio to prepare for her usual job but her upcoming stint on the reality series could prove really full on thanks to her reported 1.30am wake up alarm.

And Holly is also unlikely to get too much time to enjoy soaking up the rays in Oz thanks to the time difference between there and the UK.

As soon as she finishes up with her filming commitments in the early afternoon, Holly will apparently only have a few hours to spend time with her family and eat her last meal of the day before tucking herself up in bed at 6pm local time.
