Holly Willoughby has revealed she told Ant McPartlin that she would “look after” Declan Donnelly while filming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The TV presenter is filling in for Ant on the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity, while he takes time off following his drink-driving arrest earlier this year.
Holly’s replacement role was confirmed last month, however, the blonde beauty admitted that she “never wanted” the job to begin with.
According to the Daily Star, she said: “It was a job I never wanted to be offered because no one ever wanted the day to come when it was Dec without Ant.”
“I told Ant that I would look after his show for him – because it’s still his show – and I would look after Dec for him.”
Holly is due to fly out to Australia in November, and the series will air across three weeks.
The news comes following reports that Holly has landed a six-figure deal to host the show in Ant’s absence.
