Rochelle Humes to replace Holly Willoughby on This Morning

ochelle Humes will co-host "This Morning" with Phillip Schofield while Holly Willoughby is presenting "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!".

The singer-turned-TV presenter is no stranger to the brunch-time show having co-hosted alongside her husband Marvin Humes and presented several fashion segments, and she is "excited" about stepping in for the 37-year-old star.

Announcing the news on today's (16.10.18) show, Holly said: "When I disappear off to the jungle, you're coming in to look after Phil."

Rochelle replied: "I will, I'll take good care of you, I promise. I'm excited that I can tell people now. There were rumours at the weekend and I didn't reply to any of my friends. Sorry! I'm doing it! Yeah, I'm excited!"

Holly added: "Lots of speculation about who was going to come in and do this but you must be excited? You've done the show lots of times before."

He said: "I'm really looking forward to it, it's going to be fabulous. We'll have a great time."

Rochelle said: "I'll make sure I don't do anything naughty and there's something to come back to!"

Phillip then left Holly shocked when he jokingly shredded her picture on the "This Morning" studio wall.

Holly has already had an "I'm A Celebrity" rehearsal, and practiced shouting out Ant and Dec's famous jungle phrase, "I'm a celebrity ... get me out of here", which they do during the intro of each episode.

She explained: "It's getting real now. I had a meeting yesterday with the whole "I'm A Celeb" team. We had a bit of a kind of read through of a fake show to get used to things. I did my first "I'm a celebrity ... get me out of here [yell]," in a meeting room, without the echo.

"I learned, which I didn't realise, that only one of them says, "I'm a celebrity", and then they both say, "get me out of here." So you only join in halfway through depending on who's got the line before. I thought they both did it."

Holly confirmed in August that she would be joining forces with Dec to co-host the programme in the absence of Ant, who has taken time out of the spotlight after he was convicted of drink-driving earlier this year.

She said in a statement: "I couldn't be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure. I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery.

"These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit. Honestly, I'm a huge fan of "I'm A Celebrity" and actually feel like I've won a competition to go and hang out on my favourite show. When is it a good time to tell Dec I'm scared of everything that moves."

Dec added: "I am hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year.

"She was at the top of my list and I'm thrilled she said yes. It will be a different kind of series but we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers.

"I am also pleased to hear Holly is scared of everything. I am almost stupidly excited at the thought of watching her during the eating trials."
