Vicky Pattison confirmed to host I’m A Celebrity spin-off

It’s official – I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’s reigning Queen of the Jungle, Vicky Pattison, will host its spin-off show.

The ITV2 spin-off is being given a makeover this year. Formerly known as I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here Now!, the show will now be called I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp. Vicky will also be joined by three other hosts – returning host and former King of the Jungle Joe Swash, his real-life girlfriend and former Queen of the Jungle Stacey Solomon, and comedian Chris Ramsey.

Of the news, Vicky said: “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 was crowned Queen of the Jungle back in 2010, 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!”

I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp will be a nightly show with the gang bringing the audience rare behind-the-scenes access, unseen clips and exclusive Celeb interviews. They will also be taking part in their own Bushtucker trials and compete against each other in live studio games.

As usual, the show will be interactive, with the presenting gang encouraging viewers to join in with the jungle fun on their social media accounts. The main show hosts Ant and Dec will also be popping in to talk about the goings on after each show.

The announcement of the new presenting team comes after former host Laura Whitmore quit the show earlier this year. She has since been announced as a contestant on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

We can expect the new series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here and I’m a Celebrity: Extra Camp later this year.
