Holly Willoughby has revealed that two surprise campmates will be heading into the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle – but something wasn’t quite right.
The presenter, who hosts the ITV show alongside Dec Donnelly, was paid a special visit by her lookalike mum Lyn and her dad Brian, and joked that they’d become the latest residents of the camp.
Holly took to Instagram to share a snap of her parents stood atop the podium where Emperor Noel Edmonds made his famous entrance.
She said: "BREAKING NEWS… 2 new camp mates have entered the jungle… Emperor Brian and his Advisor Lyn… #imaceleb #mumanddad"

Holly’s fans admitted that they initially fell for her prank, but loved seeing the cute picture of her parents.
One commented: "I WAS LIKE WHAT?! But awwwwww"
Another, who thought she was talking about Big Brother’s Brian Dowling, said: "Got too excited then thinkin @bprdowling had gone in to the jungle"
"I actually thought this was for real," another posted.
Holly posted another picture, this time posing up with her mum and dad on the bridge that the celebs cross when they go off to do Bushtucker Trials.

Holly’s parents are just visiting her in the jungle, and her husband Dan Baldwin and their three children, Chester, Belle and Harry, are there with her too.
Days before jetting out, Holly told us that she’d been very busy preparing to take her family to Australia.
She said at this year’s Pride of Britain Awards: "[I’m flying out] next week. I am currently doing loads of Christmas shopping and sorting out visas and sorting out flights and sorting out packing and I’ve got lots to pack because I’ve got three kids and a husband and a partridge in a pear tree.

"So I’m sorting out life but I’ve got away from that tonight to come here. I’m really excited, I can’t wait to go.
"I’m scared of everything, but it’s not for me to be worried about that, that’s for the celebrities to be worried about, they’ve signed up for that so it’s their problem, not mine."
