Vicky Pattison is the favourite to replace Laura Whitmore on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now!

Last week saw Laura confirm her exit after five years fronting the ITV2 spin-off show.

"After 5 incredible series working with my extended I’m A Celeb family, I’ve taken the tough decision to hang up my jungle boots," she wrote in a message. "It’s been such a wonderful experience but I feel it’s time to move on.

"I wish the team well and look forward to tuning in later this year as well as continuing to work with ITV on other shows."

As Laura moves on to greener pastures it leaves the I’m A Celeb Get Me Outta Here Now show on the hunt for a new host.

Geordie lass and reigning Queen of the jungle Vicky is the Even money favourite to return to the jungle, but this time as host of the spin-off show.

Vicky’s main rival for the role is jungle bestie and third place finisher Ferne McCann, better known for TOWIE, at 3/1.

Should producers look for another Irish host, the recently ‘retired’ UFC fighter Conor McGregor is 66/1 to try his hand at presenting. 2013 King of the Jungle Kian Egan and One Direction’s Niall Horan are more likely choices with both on offer as 25/1 shots to take up the role.

Katie Price and Peter Andre could be reunited in the jungle where their love first blossomed, before it was later extinguished, at 5/1 to co-host. Katie Price to replace Laura Whitmore as a standalone host is also in the betting, but at the bigger price of 8/1.

Olly Murs and Caroline Flack are both free agents after getting the axe as X Factor hosts and can be backed at 10/1 apiece to swap the Fountain Studios for the Australian jungle.

Also in the running is 2014 I'm A Celebrity runner-up and former X Factor hunk Jake Quickenden.

Aoife Heffron from bookmakers BoyleSports said this afternoon: “As Laura Whitmore cast her sights on new ventures, it looks as though Vicky will remain queen of the jungle, or the jungle panel shows at least as she is hotly tipped to replace the Bray beauty.”

She added: “Topping the potential Irish replacements are Kian Egan and Niall Horan, who are battling it out at 25/1 each to take over from Laura Whitmore. Conor McGregor is a free man after supposedly announcing his retirement, however at 66/1 he may not go down as a notorious I’m A Celeb presenter.”
