There is no truth in the claims that Emma Willis is being replaced by Rylan Clark-Neal on Big Brother.

Reports this morning had claimed that Emma was set to quit the show after this summer's run to instead focus on her role on The Voice UK on ITV next year.

"Emma loves the show but feels it is time to move on," a supposed source told the Daily Star newspaper. "The decision to leave has come from her and not Channel 5.

Current Bit On The Side and new Xtra Factor co-host Rylan was tipped to replace her.

The insider added: "Obviously Rylan is excited about the job but he's really nervous about filling Emma's shoes.

"She's been such a big part of the programme anyone would have second thoughts about following her onto the main show."

Well fans of Emma can relax because both Channel 5 and Emma's team have insisted the story is rubbish.

"This is untrue," Channel 5 commented.

Reps for Emma and Rylan confirmed: "There is no truth in this."

So there you go!

Celebrity Big Brother concludes tonight with Emma at the helm before the final Bit On The Side straight after.

Both shows will return in January for what will be the nineteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother.
