Bookies Have Shortened Odds On Holly Being Replaced As She's SLAMMED By Viewers

Holly Willoughby is stepping in for Ant McPartlin on this year's series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and whilst the This Morning presenter is basically a national treasure, not everyone is thrilled with her performance so far.

With a CV that includes such huge presenting gigs as Dancing On Ice, Celebrity Juice and This Morning, Holly Willoughby would seem like a pretty safe pair of hands for any presenting job. Stepping into Ant McPartlin's shoes to co-present alongside Dec was always going to be a big ask, however, and whoever took the job on had a huge challenge on their hands. 

When it was first announced that Holly would be taking the job, she was quick to underline the fact that she wasn't trying to replace Ant permanently, saying 'These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit.'

After the first two episodes of I'm A Celeb 2018, however, many fans have taken to social networks to criticise Holly's presenting skills on the show - slamming her 'lack of banter' and calling her 'stiff as a board'. 

As bookies shorten the odds on Holly being replaced by another presenter before the series is out, ITV have made a statement about the furore. Check out the video for all the latest updates!
