Chris Ramsey, Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash will join her on show formerly known as 'NOW!'

I'm A Celebrity 2016 Extra Camp presenters

Vicky Pattison has been CONFIRMED as a presenter for ITV2's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! spin-off - which has been given a new name for 2016.

Since the jungle juggernaut's very first series in 2002, its sister show had been known as 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here NOW!'.

However, this year bosses have decided to rename it 'I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp'. The new title is a lot shorter, though we're not sure it's as catchy.

But that's not the only big news, as following months of rumours, ITV has finally confirmed that Vicky Pattison - the reigning Queen of the Jungle - will head up a new team of presenters.

She'll be joined by comedian and Celebrity Juice regular Chris Ramsey, and fellow I'm A Celeb champions Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash.

And it seems there will even be a few format tweaks, as the foursome will apparently be competing against each other to bring viewers the most behind-the-scenes exclusives.

Vicky said of her new role: "I can't wait to work alongside Chris, Joe, and Stacey, who are all brilliant.

"I'm dying to get back in the jungle and hopefully they'll still let me give some of the trials a go! We can't let the camp mates have all the fun now, can we?"

Stacey - who is in a relationship with Joe - added: "I'm so thrilled and excited to be a part of the ITV2 team in the jungle.

"I'm going back to Australia and I get to do the job of my dreams, alongside three of the nicest, funniest people around including my man. Absolute job goals!"

The changes come after Laura Whitmore's exit from the show, which enabled her to be a contestant on this year's Strictly Come Dancing. David Morgan also departed, leaving Joe as the only returning presenter.

I'm A Celebrity is due to return to our screens in November, with Extra Camp airing every night on ITV2 after the main show.
