Vicky Pattison has hit back at claims she has been fired from I'm A Celebrity's spin-off show Extra Factor.

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 today, Vicky could be set to depart the show.

But she insisted that no decision has been made just yet.

“If I’m not right for a job or the producers decide to replace me, I would take it on the chin,” Vicky explained. “I know I’m relatively new to this industry but I do know that’s the future of the game.

“However, there have been no decisions made about Extra Camp, none at all, and that’s a quote that’s gone on record from both my management and everyone at ITV."

She added: “If, when the time comes, ITV decide to replace me or my role is made obsolete, I will accept it.

“But in the meantime, the big wigs and large cheeses are far too busy sorting out Saturday Night Takeaway and Love Island, and we get thought about much further along in the year.”

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

Vicky also cleared up reports claiming she had been 'replaced' as host of Channel 5's new Blind Date before it had begun.

“I was in talks to host the show in some way at some point, however that was back when it was going to be a Friday night reboot, post water-shed, wild and crazy for young audiences,” Vicky told her followers. “It’s since had a massive scheduling change and it’s going to be pre-watershed.”

She continued: "It’s completely 100 per cent better suited to fantastic professional presenters like Mel and Paul.

"In my heart of hearts, I know the right people got the job. Mel and Paul will smash it, especially at the time the show is on, for that audience and being the consummate professionals that they are.”
