TV legend tipped to replace Ant on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here
November just won't be the same
Ant McPartlin won't be heading down under for this year's series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, after he released a statement yesterday confirming that he was quitting the show.
Ant announced that he would be taking a break from all TV for the rest of the year as he continues to recover from addiction.
Dec said that he was "proud" of his friend for working to beat his issues. He added:"Whilst I am obviously sad at the thought of being without my best friend in Australia this year, I am proud of the work Ant has been doing privately and I am fully supportive of his decision. I’m looking forward to us both being reunited on screen in 2019."
With Dec confirming that he'll return to present I'm A Celeb this year, the question on everyone's lips is who might join him.
A couple of names have been attached to the gig but if the online reaction over the past 24 hours is anything to go by, there's only one person the public wants to see on screens.
Ant McPartlin won't be presenting I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here with Dec this year. That means only one thing, Phillip Schofield, your time has come.

If @Schofe doesn’t get the “I’m a celeb” gig it’ll be a robbery of British television

We'd have to agree; Phillip Schofield would ace presenting from the jungle.
