I’m A Celebrity returned to screens last night for a hilarious look-back episode and some viewers wondered why Holly Willoughby was missing.

Ahead of the new series of the popular reality TV show, which will film at Gwrych Castle in Wales this year for the first time ever, ITV treated viewers on a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

To celebrate the upcoming 20th series, Sunday (November 8) evening’s A Jungle Story showed some of the funniest and most shocking moments of I’m A Celeb of the last 18 years.

What did I’m A Celebrity… A Jungle Story viewers say about Holly Willoughby?

Some of those watching at home noticed that TV’s Holly Willoughby was missing.

The This Morning host famously stepped in to guest present I’m A Celebrity in 2018 alongside Dec Donnelly, when Ant McPartlin took a break from TV following his drink driving conviction.

Watching last night, one said: “Didn’t really talk about the year Holly hosted or show any trials from that year #ImACeleb #junglestory.”

Another said: “Bit weird to do a whole section on how Ant and Dec are besties and no one can ever do #ImACeleb like they do and completely not mention when Holly stepped in. They are brilliant, but Holly was also ace.”

I love Ant and Dec but when Holly filled in she was great!

A third wrote, “Ant and Dec just forgetting Holly presented in 2018 #ImACeleb” and added in a separate tweet: “Surprised they haven’t shown anything from when Holly presented #ImACeleb.”

Someone else put: “I love Ant and Dec but when Holly filled in she was great! #ImACeleb.”

ED! contacted ITV for comment.
