Fleur East has landed a role as fitness presenter on This Morning, her first big move since I’m a Celebrity.
ITV bosses were impressed by the 31-year-old’s “infectious personality” on the jungle show and quickly snapped her up.
Fleur will front a new health and fitness series, called Inch Loss Island, from tomorrow.
And for her first stint on the breakfast show, she will be back in the tropical heat, presenting live from Antigua.
Londoner Fleur said: “I’m getting whisked away and will be following This Morning viewers on their weight-loss journey.

But she admitted being nervous over her new job. She added: “I am terrified.”
Revealing why the former X Factor star was chosen, a This Morning insider said: “She’s a perfect fit for This Morning. She’s fun, instantly likeable and a fitness fanatic.”
Three viewers are being sent to Inch Loss Island where they will take on a more “holistic approach to their fitness”.
