Catherine Tyldesley ‘lined up to replace Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice’

Former soap actress Catherine Tyldesley could replace Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice.


Holly announced this month that she was stepping down from the ITV2 series after 12 years.

While no replacement has been announced just yet, rumour has it that Catherine Tyldesley could be sat in Holly’s seat next series.

Catherine has appeared on the show as a guest before and is reportedly seen as an “ideal” replacement alongside host Keith Lemon.

“Cath is brilliant fun, naturally very sharp and witty, and already has chemistry with Keith as they’re pals,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “She’s also got a girl next door appeal, much like Holly.

“Producers have got a short list of around eight stars, and Cath is very much up. For her part, she has told pals she would be up for it.”

Also rumoured for the show is Emily Atack, a regular guest on the series.

But someone who has ruled herself out of the running is actress Michelle Keegan after she was linked to Holly’s job.

Michelle told The One Show: “I can officially say that’s not true. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a massive fan of the show. I love the show, I find it hilarious. But, at the minute, no, no, that’s not true.”


Meanwhile, Keith Lemon told HELLO! Magazine of the future of Celebrity Juice: “Everyone keeps asking me who the new captain is but I don’t know what the future of Celebrity Juice is at the moment, it’s a lot of meetings.”

For now, you can catch up with the latest from Celebrity Juice online via the ITV Hub.
