Keith Lemon vows to QUIT Celebrity Juice if Holly Willoughby ever leaves

Keith Lemon has vowed to quit Celebrity Juice if Holly Willoughby leaves the show.

The Celebrity Juice host also confirmed he has found Fearne Cotton’s replacement after the presenter revealed she would be leaving the show after 10 years of being a team captain.

In an interview with the Daily Star, Keith explained how Fearne told her of her plans, and why Holly’s part in the show is of such high importance.

He said: "Fearne called me to tell me. I always said I’d want to get to ten years, and I had a feeling, because she never phones me. We text all the time about fashion, especially when the sales are on as we both love our clothes, and she said that she wanted to focus on her own stuff.

"I don’t know if I’m talking out of turn, but she wants to do more serious stuff, and I guess you can’t do that if you’re mucking around doing juice. It’s just one big party, so I kind of respect that."

Initially, Keith even said he would leave too, until he got the go-ahead from Holly instead.

He said: "Holly rings and says, ‘so who we getting then?’ And I went, ‘Oh you’re still up for it then?’ And she said, ‘I always thought I’d be the first one to leave’ and I said ‘so did I’.

"Holly is so popular, I’m just glad that she’s still up for playing about. It’s exciting, we’ve started calling it ‘new school juice’ we start filming again in March."

The team will be back filming soon, and already Keith has nailed down the name for who will be taking over from Fearne – but he is giving nothing away until the ink is dry on the contract.

He added: "I know who’s doing it but it’s not been confirmed. When I’ve seen they’ve signed the contract then I’ll confirm it. We’ve had a chat about a few ideas and it had to be someone that myself and Holly are all happy with.

"Juice is a family, if Holly left then it wouldn’t be Juice, but while it’s still me and Holly it’s still Juice, well ‘new school juice’ and I think it’s good that she has that balance. She does daytime and then naughty night time with us."

Keith even joked that Holly would "drink you under the table" with a fondness for tequila.

Celebrity Juice, when it is back on ITV2, airs at 10pm on Thursdays.
