She was loved by viewers and she was praised by her co-host Dec Donnelly, but Holly Willoughby won't be returning to host the show.

Ant, who decided to take a year off from all showbiz duties in 2018 to focus on his recovery, will be reunited with his friend and co-presenter Dec for the 2019 series of the popular jungle show.

The show's Creative Director Richard Cowles revealed the news, saying, "We love what Holly did, but we’re very much looking forward to Ant coming back and I think it’s going to be an amazing series.

"I think the job is for us to create a series and cast where everyone wants to come back and watch more, so I’m not worried. I’m looking forward to seeing Ant and Dec back again."

After her successful stint on the show, where viewers praised her for doing a grand job, Holly was tipped to end Ant and Dec's 17-year NTA reign, however the Geordie boys were able to keep their crown, picking up the Best Presenter award again.

Meanwhile, as well as being confirmed to appear on I'm A Celebrity in 2019, Ant will also be back on the brand new series of Britain's Got Talent.

The talent show, which is due to begin in April, released the first teaser trailer for the series, showing Ant and Dec back together again. The one minute long advert shows Dec struggling to conduct a music hall, before Ant appears to help out his friend, leading to all four judges to make an appearance.
