Vicky Pattison could be axed from I'm A Celebrity's ITV2 spin-off show Extra Camp.

The 2015 I'm A Celeb winner took over hosting duties of the new look ITV2 series last year, when previous presenter Laura Whitmore left for Strictly Come Dancing.

Vicky was joined by Stacey Solomon, Joe Swash and comedian Chris Ramsey on the line up for the show, which was previously known as I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now.

According to The Sun newspaper, show bosses are considering letting Vicky go after a number of dodgy moments on air during last year's series.

A source told the tabloid: “Vicky’s a likeable girl and she’s obviously popular with viewers having won the show, but there were a lot of mistakes and the feeling is that hosting live TV was too much.

The insider added: “They’re going to review the format for the next series and go for a slightly different approach. As a result, it doesn’t look as though Vicky will be coming back.”

A spokesperson for ITV insisted: "No decisions have been made about changes to the Extra Camp line up as yet.”

If Vicky does get the axe it would be the second blow to her TV career this month.

She was reportedly dropped from the new Blind Date on Channel 5 in favour of Mel Sykes.

Mel will join main host Paul O'Grady rather than the former Geordie Shore star.

"While Vicky was never going to take on Cilla’s presenting role, she was the frontrunner to star in some way," a source told The Sun today. “However, the show has changed direction from its original plans. It was first aimed at a young audience for a Friday night slot, but after signing Paul it switched to Sunday night and is now being aimed at an older audience.

“Vicky’s audience is still quite young and it no longer felt like the right fit.”
