As Holly Willoughby prepares for a stint Down Under, the star has revealed she'll be taking her children with her.
Holly – who shares Harry, nine, Belle, seven, and Chester, three with husband Dan Baldwin – just landed herself a gig presenting I’m A Celebrity alongside Declan Donnelly while Ant McPartlin takes some time off.
And as she returned to This Morning today, the 37-year-old spoke about the amazing new role for the first time, telling co-star Phillip Schofield that she’d has spent the summer organising the ‘logistics’ of the move.
“When I first found out, it’s obviously bitter sweet, but it was exciting”, she admitted.
“You try and work out when you’ll go and how long for. The kids are coming with me so I’ve been speaking with the school seeing how that’s all going to work.
“Dan’s coming with me, then all of a sudden that’s it, logistics are all sorted and you go oh, there’s going to be spiders and stuff.”
Holly will be replacing Ant, 42, following his drink drive charge in March, and while Dec might be without his right-hand man in Australia, the mum-of-three did reveal he’ll also be bringing his new baby girl with him.
The Geordie presenter and his wife Ali Astall welcomed little Isla over the weekend and shared the happy news with an adorable Instagram post.
Speaking about her pal’s first born, Holly said, “I can’t wait for snuggles with her. And I think she’s going to be coming to Australia as well which is very exciting!”
Meanwhile, the whole nation might be desperate to see I’m A Celebrity back on our telly screens, but it turns out there’s a few things Holly isn’t looking forward to.
“One is the eating challenge”, she said.
“Even if you just ate chocolate and opened your mouth to show me right now I wouldn’t like it. The fact you’ve eaten a body part that you’re not meant to, it’s going to be horrible.
“I’m also not going to like the smells. I’m not good with smells. And when they come out and they’ve got stuff still on them.”
She then added, “What have I done?”
Ever supportive Phil the replied,”When you told me in secret over the summer I just couldn’t believe my ears.”
Before joking, “In a country where everything eats you? You’ll be fantastic.”
Well, we reckon Holly is going to be amazing!
