Caroline Flack has ruled out a return to I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now!

Earlier this year we saw Laura Whitmore 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 online. "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."

Laura had taken over from Caroline as host back in 2011 when she moved over to The Xtra Factor.

Caroline of course then went on to front The X Factor last year but announced last month she wouldn't be back this year.

Despite I'm A Celebrity being one of her "favourite jobs", Caroline says she won't be back to take over from Laura.

She said this week: "I think the production want to change it, and that's important. Laura was there for five years and fantastic – they didn't get rid of her because they wanted to get rid of her – the show changes, she left.

"I think it had to change and evolve - all TV shows have to do that. I'd be very jealous of whoever takes over and did it. I was jealous of Laura for five years because I knew how much fun she had. It's a great show."

Caroline added: "Maybe get Joe Swash to host it on his own."

Meanwhile recent rumours have suggested that Laura is being lined up to take over from Caroline's old job on the Xtra Factor, alongside Rylan Clark.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here will return for a new series in the autumn on ITV with the spin-off show on ITV2.
