Emily Atack impresses in Bushtucker Trial

Emily Atack impresses in Bushtucker Trial

How much are you going to miss Ant on I'm A Celebrity?

Emily has been tasked with the Viper Pit in which she must retrieve stars from boxes filled with snakes, while show hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby grimace from the sidelines. The This Morning presenter has taken over presenting duties while Ant is in recovery for alcohol addiction, and viewers took to social media to express their views on the new host.

Since confirming she'd be temporarily standing in for Ant McPartlin, I'm a Celebrity presenter Holly Willoughby's been the subject of an bad lot of nonsense.

On Monday, the day after Willoughby's I'm a Celebrity debut, the Sun reported that bookmaker Paddy Power was already beginning to anticipate her departure, dropping their odds from 25/1 to 16/1.

Willoughby is filling in on the show, which starts on Sunday night.

With a CV that includes such huge presenting gigs as Dancing On Ice, Celebrity Juice and This Morning, Holly Willoughby would seem like a pretty safe pair of hands for any presenting job.

Elsewhere on the show, Anne Hegerty and Fleur East took part in the first Dingo Dollar challenge to win the camp some scones with jam and clotted cream. In a statement, she said, "I couldn't be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure".

Holly then admitted she "hoped" she would be on the same salary as December.

According to overnight ratings the show was watched by up to 11 million people, up 700,000 from last year's opening episode.

I'm A Celebrity.Get Me Out Of Here continues on ITV at 9pm.

Emily nearly made the nation proud with her incredible effort in the trial, but what asked what she was thinking of to distract herself from the snakes around her, Emily revealed that she wanted to start her Christmas Day meal with a cheeseboard.
