Keith Lemon and Holly Willoughby had a pact with Fearne Cotton that they would all leave Celebrity Juice at the same time.
Fearne, 37, had been a regular team captain on the panel show alongside her friend Holly and host Keith for over a decade, but announced she was leaving the comedy series last year.
She has been replaced by comedian Paddy McGuinness.
On This Morning on Wednesday (13.03.19) presenter Phillip Schofield revealed that his regular co-host Holly and Keith had an agreement with Fearne, 37, that if one of them left, they all would depart, however, Holly admitted that she and Keith decided to stay on because neither were “quite ready to stop yet”.
Holly, 37, said: “Obviously, when Fearne said that she was leaving, it was a bit of a shock for both of us, wasn’t it?”
Keith, 45, quickly replied: “It was a bit weird.”
Holly then added: “I think we started together right from the beginning and it was always gonna be weird, however, Paddy there was only ever one person [to replace her].”
Keith then quipped: “I thought you were gonna leave as well!”
Spilling on the pact, Phillip then interjected: “You guys had a pact, didn’t you, that if one went all went…”
Keith confirmed that the trio “did initially” have an agreement to all depart Celebrity Juice together.
Explaining why the pair decided to carry on without Fearne, Holly said: “I think what happened was we just really enjoyed making the show still and I don’t think we were quite ready for it to stop yet.”
Keith went on to say that he felt he and Holly couldn’t “just go” because they both “enjoy it so much” and added that they immediately thought of Paddy, 45, to be Fearne’s replacement.
