Keith Lemon has revealed Fearne Cotton’s Celebrity Juice replacement to the Loose Women.
Team captain Fearne announced she had quit her role on the comedy gameshow series after 10 years to pursue other projects in December 2018.
This has left a gap on the panel for someone to join Keith and other team captain Holly Willoughby for some whacky antics.
Fearne’s replacement was discussed on today’s Loose Women after speculation that it could be Stacey Solomon.
The Celebrity Juice host didn’t want to give anything away but ended up letting slip the name to the panel.
Keith Lemon was asked about Fearne’s replacement
Keith promised to tell the Loose Women
He said: "I know who it is but I’m not allowed to say because of scheduling. We don’t know if the dates tally."
However, viewers didn’t actually get to hear the name as Keith told the Loose ladies off camera.
When asked for an obscure clue, he said: "As soon as this programme has finished I’ll tell you who it is."
Keith’s eyes did the talking
Cheeky Keith kept winking
They tried to get the identity of Fearne’s replacement out of Keith by bringing up photos of possible candidates.
They zoomed in on Keith’s face in a bid to see if his face would flicker when the person popped up.
Keith started twitching and pulling faces when Stacey, Emily Atack and Paddy McGuinness appeared.
But his face dropped to a scowl when Gino D’Acampo was mentioned.

Fearne revealed why she had left the ITV2 show at the start of the year on Lorraine.
When asked whether she was "too grown up" for the show, Fearne said: "Oh my god, no way! I don’t feel like I’ve grown up at all!
"I did ten brilliant years there, and 20 series, and I love it so, so much and I’ll walk away missing the gang massively. But you need to have a change and a shake-up in life every now and again, and take risks and feel a bit scared again.
"It was the same when I left Radio 1, I kind of left on a bit of a high and wanted to try something new and have a new adventure. So it’s very much with that kind of feeling, but I’ll miss everyone massively."
Fearne will be leaving her role as team captain
Keith has also vowed to quit Celebrity Juice if Holly leaves as well.
Initially, Keith even said he would leave too, until he got the go-ahead from Holly instead.
Speaking to the Daily Star, 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’.
