Holly Willoughby could QUIT I’m A Celebrity after mixed reviews to jungle debut

Holly Willoughby finally made her I’m A Celebrity debut last night as she filled in for pal Ant McPartlin.

While it was a clear ratings success for ITV, Holly received mixed reactions from viewers who were clearly missing Ant and Dec’s easy banter.

And now it has been revealed that bookmakers have upped the odds on the presenter quitting before the 2018 series has finished.

Holly is filling in for Ant, who is sitting out this year to focus on his recovery from drink and prescription drug addiction after he was involved in a car crash In March.

A spokesperson from Paddy Power said: “It’s early days, but watching Dec without Ant just doesn’t quite feel right, and Holly’s already taken some flak for her debut jungle performance.

“So much so that we’ve slashed the likelihood of her bowing out before the series with over, and returning to our screens alongside Philip Schofield.”
