Joel Dommett will co-host the "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" spin-off show "Extra Camp" alongside Scarlett Moffatt.

The 31-year-old comedian was the runner-up of the ITV reality show when he took part last year, and it has now been revealed he will join the former Queen of the jungle to host the show's spin-off series.

A TV source told The Sun newspaper: "Show bosses wanted to refresh the format and give it a new lease of life. They feel Scarlett and Joel have great on-screen chemistry and they're hoping the ratings will reflect that. They're a naturally funny pair together so the risk should pay off."

Whilst a spokesperson for the show added: "We will announce our 2017 presenting line up in due course."

The news comes after the ITV2 spin-off's former presenter Stacey Solomon was axed from the show, whilst the presenting future of her boyfriend and co-host Joe Swash remained up in the air.

A source said recently: "Stacey and Joe are lovely people and great presenters, and everyone involved was really happy with what they did.

"But the thinking this time around is to have a complete revamp in the format and Stacey unfortunately don't quite fit into that.

"Joe may still have a role but that hasn't been decided, but everyone involved will miss working with Stacey, and Joe if he leaves, because they're great fun."

When the show returns this year, fans could be faced with a whole new line-up if Joe has also leaves the hosting team, as this year also saw bosses give Vicky Pattison and Chris Ramsey the boot.

A source said at the time: "Bosses love the "Extra Camp" format and think it's a great part of the whole "I'm A Celebrity..." package, but they felt it could do with a shake-up.

"Obviously Ant and Dec are always going to be the hosts of the main show, but producers have tended to tinker around with "Extra Camp", changing hosts, tweaking the format and even changing the name."
