Adam Thomas is set to present "I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp".

The 31-year-old former "Emmerdale" actor - who finished third on "I'm A Celebrity three years ago - will join Emily Atack, 29, and Joel Dommett, 33, to host the show after Joel's former co-presenters Scarlett Moffatt and Joe Swash left.

A source told The Sun Online: "Adam showed how brilliant he was on camera during his time on the show and has plenty of TV experience from his years as an actor.

"He also knows the jungle inside out - and is sure to have great banter with Joel and Emily.

"Adam couldn't believe his luck as he found out and can't wait to start."

Joe, 37, announced his departure from "Extra Camp" after a decade to spend more time with his family after he and Stacey Solomon welcomed their first child together, Rex, in May.

The father-of-two - who also has 12-year-old son Harry with his ex-fiancee Emma Sophocleous - wrote on Instagram: "I can't believe I'm about to say this ... For 10 incredible years I've been lucky enough to host my favourite show on telly. I don't want to miss a second with Stacey and our amazing boys so 3 months in Australia just seems too [much] to bare this year (sic)."

And "Gogglebox" star Scarlett, 29 - who joined the spin-off show in 2017, after being crowned Queen of the Jungle the year before - revealed she is working on a mystery project with her family.

Meanwhile, John Barrowman recently revealed he would love to host "Extra Camp".

Asked about the possibility of the job, he said: "I'd love to do it - absolutely! I had a ball in the jungle! And I've said that I would go back at the drop of a hat if they did an all-star version.

"I really enjoyed my time in there - yes, if ITV wanted me to host the after show, I'd be more than happy to do it!"

And after it was revealed that Emily was set to star on the show, along with returning host Joel, John insisted they would be the perfect presenting trio.

He said: "With us three, I could be the maturity and they could be the fun. We'd have a nice balance and I think that could work."
