Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore will join Celebrity Juice as new team captains.

Holly Willoughby announced earlier this year that she was stepping down from the ITV2 series after 12 years.


Mel B has also stepped down from the show as a team captain.

It's now been confirmed that Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore have signed up as team captains.

They're set to join host Keith Lemon when the new series begins filming in the autumn.

Emily said: "Every time I've been on Juice in the past I've had such a good time, and now I'm doing it with two of my best mates and I'm a ruddy team captain!!! Can't believe it.

"I dread to think what we're going to be faced with, but Whitmore should know that I won't be backing down and she is going to have some tough competition. But more importantly a wonderfully hilarious time. Bring it on!"

Laura added: "I'm so thrilled to be part of the Celeb Juice Family. I've been the biggest fan for years, I used to go and sit in the audience when I first moved to London and can't believe I'm a team captain now!


"I can't wait to see what Keith has got lined up for Emily and I this series… From past experiences, nothing would surprise me. I cannot wait to get stuck in and lead my team to victory each week… I love you Emily, but watch out! I'm so excited to start!"

And Keith said: "Can't wait to start new Celeb Juice with old friends. Exciting times ahead!"

Announcing her exit earlier this year, Holly said: "Thank you for all your ingenious ideas and hard work...all good things must come to an end and nothing lasts forever...

"It’s time for me to hand over my team captain seat to some lucky lucky person... whoever that is, know you are about to get one of the best jobs in telly working with one of comedies finest...@keithlemon."

Meanwhile a spokesperson for the show confirmed Mel B's exit in July: "Mel has been a brilliant team captain and we'd like to thank her for all the laughs.

"We have no doubt she'll be back to banter with Keith as a guest on the show in the near future."
