Vicky Pattison says she hoped for a ‘second chance’ to host I’m A Celebrity’s spin-off show.
Vicky, along with Chris Ramsey and Stacey Solomon, won’t be back to front ITV2 series Extra Camp this year.
The trio had hosted a new-look sister show to the main ITV series, hosted by Ant and Dec.
This year, Extra Camp will be hosted live every night by current Queen of the Jungle Scarlett Moffatt, 2016 runner up and comedian Joel Dommett and Jungle favourite and former King of the Jungle Joe Swash.
Speaking about being dropped, Vicky told MTV: “I would never regret doing it. It was an amazing opportunity. I was very fortunate to have even been considered.”
The reality star and former Queen of the Jungle confessed: “I would have loved to have been given a second chance. Anyone saying otherwise is lying.
“But I respect the decision and I wish Scarlett and Joel the best of luck and I’ve no doubt they’re going to make an amazing show.”
Speaking on replacing Vicky & co last week, Scarlett Moffatt said “After last years Jungle experience which was a dream come true, I can’t believe I’m so lucky to have the dream continue by being part of this amazing show and joining the ITV2 Extra Camp team, it’s going to be so much fun.”
Joel Dommett added: “I’m unbelievably excited to be going back into the Jungle for Extra Camp. Ever since ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ got me out of there, I’ve been wanting desperately to get back in there. I can’t blooming wait!”.
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is expected to begin in November.
