Who is Presenting I’m A Celeb 2018?
The long-standing I’m A Celeb duo of Ant and Dec will be torn apart for the first time this year.
Ant has been in and out of rehab over the past 12 months after admitting to “alcohol and emotional issues” following the breakdown of his marriage with Lisa Armstrong and a drink-driving incident.
Instead, Dec will co-host the series alongside This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby.
However, Holly has always insisted that she is simply keeping Ant’s seat warm rather than taking over full-time.
