I’m A Celebrity fans think the banter’s missing between Holly and Dec

It was never going to be an easy job

It was always going to be a hard job for anyone filling the shoes of Ant McPartlin alongside Declan Donnelly on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and only an hour into the show, fans are already missing him.

And in particular they’re missing his trademark banter with Dec, with many saying Holly Willoughby just doesn’t measure up.

Things did seem a little awkward as the show began. Dec made a joke about having never “done it with a woman before” and always having done it “every night with a man”,  Holly giggled awkwardly and suggested they got back to the show.

Fans began picking up on the lack of chemistry straight away.

But other viewers were quick to hit back and defend the presenter saying she was doing really well.

And others insisted they could never recreate Ant and Dec, so people should stop complaining and give Holly a chance.

Fans were already split over her appointment in the role after seeing the first clip of her and Dec presenting together.

But now it seems they’re even more divided!
