Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly’s upcoming work commitments as a duo may seem a little unclear following Ant’s drink-drive arrest and subsequent return to rehab this week.
Insiders even revealed to the Daily Star that the presenting pair may not return to I’m a Celebrity for this year’s series in November.
ITV have strongly denied they will replace Ant and Dec on the show.
But if Ant decides to extend his time off, who could replace the pair?
Fans have already called for This Morning star Holly Willoughby to join Dec as a co-host if Ant doesn’t return.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Ant is human and to be human is to err. Hoping Ant is feeling the love and best wishes from us all. I do reckon Holly Willoughby would be a fab co-host contender!”
Another added: “Being a huge Ant and Dec fan I have found the last few days upsetting. I hope that Ant gets the help he so needs and Dec gets the support that he needs without his best friend by his side.
“Holly Willoughby would be the perfect candidate to present the show with him,’ while another said ‘@this morning when is Holly taking over from Ant? Holly and Dec, got a ring to it!!”
Another fan suggested Stephen Mulhern – who already presents with Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway.
One fan tweeted: “I love Stephen. Granted, he’s nothing like Ant and Dec, but at least he’ll be better at presenting #BGT than Olli Murs was when he took over from Dermot on The X Factor.”
Another suggested X Factor host Dermot O’Leary, tweeting: “Dermot O Leary is also a great show presenter and has a lot of FANS.”
Some fans called for a female replacement with Emma Willis. One wrote: “I think @EmmaWillis should stand in for Ant.”
One said: “Honestly. Put Emma Willis with dec for im a celeb.”
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s been plenty of talk about Ant & Dec being replaced on I’m a Celeb and as things stand it’s their Geordie pal Scarlett Moffatt who would be most likely to replace them Down Under.”
Scarlett Moffatt is the current 2/1 favourite to front I’m a Celeb IF Ant & Dec move on, but here’s a full list…
Scarlett – 2/1
Holly and Phil – 4/1
Caroline Flack – 9/2
Dermot O’Leary – 6/1
Joe Swash – 8/1
