Emma Willis has been forced to deny she's pregnant after suddenly quitting Big Brother's Bit On The Side.

Emma hosted her last ever episode of the spin-off show last night on Channel 5 after four years.

Rylan Clark will take over from Emma full time as she focuses on fronting the main live shows.

A spokesperson said: “Emma Willis will host her last episode of Bit On The Side tonight. We’d like to thank Emma for being a huge part of BOTS for the last four years.

"Emma continues as the main host of Big Brother”

No reason has been given for the sudden change, leading to lots of speculation online.

Emma tweeted last night: “Thank you for all your lovely messages re #cbbbots this show has been my baby for 4 years and I’ll truly miss it. Thanks for being awesome."

She added: “Thanks for all your wonderful messages. I can’t begin to tell you how much [I’ll] miss it. And to clarify, [I’m] not pregnant”.

Emma has become one of the UK's biggest telly presenters in recent years having first started her career on MTV.

She then moved on to ITV2's I'm A Celebrity spin off I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! NOW! in 2007.

More recently, Emma has of course appeared on Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother, as well as BBC One's primetime Saturday night talent show The Voice UK and ITV's game show Prize Island.

In the next few months she's got even more projects lined up with new ITV2 panel show Reality Bites and BBC One game show Prized Apart.

Maybe she just needed a break!
