This morning, it was announced that Holly Willoughby is co-hosting I'm A Celeb with Declan Donnelly when the show returns later this year. 

Following the news, an old video of Ant and Dec presenting the show has resurfaced, which saw Dec joke about Holly filling in for Ant during last year's series. Fan of the show Dom Stirling posted the throwback. 

At the start of 2017's series, Dec welcomed viewers and then jokingly incorrectly introduced his co-presenter. 

Last summer, Ant checked himself into rehab, leading to viewers wondering whether or not he would return to present the show. 

"We are back and we're here for the next three weeks. Your hosts, me and the gorgeous Holly Willoughby."

Holly released a statement about filling in for Ant.

"I couldn't be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure." You can read her full statement here

I'm A Celeb is expected to return to our screens in November.
