Holly Willoughby has been tipped to join I'm A Celebrity alongside Dec once again next year.

Speculation is rife that Holly might become a permanent fixture as co-host on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here after successfully filling in for Ant McPartlin alongside veteran host Declan Donnelly.

It was the first time in the show’s 15 years that Ant and Dec didn’t host together however the show has since reported record breaking ratings, attracting an average of 12.2 million viewers each week, making it the most watched ever.

Despite Ant McPartlin’s expected return to television for Britain’s Got Talent next year it is 6/4 that Holly and Dec will be back in the jungle as presenters for the 2019 series of I’m A Celeb.

Another rumour doing the rounds is Holly be become a campmate after Dec handed her a campmates t-shirt in the finale with her name and voting ‘phone number’ on it. However, at 33/1 to appear in the 2019 line-up it looks unlikely.

Meanwhile, a number of other celebs are already being linked to next year's series.

Celebrities being tipped to enter the jungle in 2019 are Love Island 2017 winner and Dancing on Ice third runner up, Kem Cetinay, who is red hot at 1/4, TOWIE’s Megan McKenna at 1/3, Made In Chelsea star Jamie Lang at 2/5 and another Love Islander from the cast of 2017, Olivia Attwood at 4/6.

Other names circulating are presenter Alison Hammond (7/4), MIC’s Sam Thompson (2/1), Rapper Lady Leshurr (7/2) and Presenter Maya Jama (4/1) after they all appeared on I’m A Celeb Extra Camp.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for bookies BoyleSports commented: “Everyone was sceptical about Holly filling in for Ant alongside Dec on I’m A Celeb as no one has ever split the pair up, but the This Morning presenter went down a treat with viewers.

"Although King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp had everyone tuning in night after night, the record breaking ratings have also been attributed to Holly and Dec’s chemistry. Ant has yet to be confirmed to return to I’m A Celeb and punters are already latching onto Holly’s 6/4 odds to go back to the jungle.”

She added “The series may have just ended, but already there are rumours of who will be entering the jungle next season. There are four key names to watch, Kem Cetinay, Megan McKenna, Jamie Lang and Olivia Attwood, who all took part in trials on Extra Camp and although some failed miserably, they made for good TV which is making them early frontrunners to sign on next year.”

I'm A Celebrity airs on ITV.
