Ferne McCann and Vicky Pattison have been tipped to host I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now! this year.

It follows Laura Whitmore quitting the ITV2 series after 5 years to join Strictly Come Dancing.

The Irish telly presenter announced she was leaving I'm A Celebrity's spin-off back in the Spring, saying in a statement: "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.

"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."

A lot of names have been linked to Laura's job with reigning Queen of the jungle Vicky and her fellow finalist from last year's series Ferne apparently the favourites.

Ferne said this week that the show would be her "dream job", especially hosting alongside pal Vicky.

"Obviously, the jungle is where we met," Fearne told OK! Magazine.

"I think me and Vick have great banter. She's very quick and whitty and I'm not but I bring the lols and the bants," she enthused.

Ferne continued: "I would snatch their hands off, I really would [if I was offered the role]. There have been names thrown around. There are talks but nothing is confirmed."

The new series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here will return to ITV2 alongside the main show with Ant and Dec in November time.
