Sad news as she was a massive hit with viewers.

After a great run of co-presenting with Dec on the latest season of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!, Holly Willoughby has confirmed that she won’t be returning to the show next year.

Speaking to The Sun at the launch of Dancing On Ice, the presenter said “This was a one-off, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.”

When asked if it might be that she could join as part of the trio for next year’s line-up of hosts, she replied “I just don’t think that is an option. I’ll be at home with everyone else having a glass of wine watching it.

“That was the thing I was most jealous of. Here I am standing here while you’re all drinking red wine at home in front of the fire and I’m in the rain in the jungle.”

It is rumoured that Ant McPartlin is set to rejoin as co-host for the next season, as well as co-host for the upcoming season of Britain’s Got Talent, but there have been no confirmations from either show yet.

In the meantime, let us enjoy the time Holly defeated the Celebrity Cyclone:
