With just over a month to go until I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to our screens, it has been revealed that the show will be looking pretty different this year as two brand new presenters are set to join the Extra Camp team alongside Joel Dommett.
Earlier this year, popular I’m A Celeb stars Joe Swash and Scarlett Moffatt announced that they were standing down from presenting the ITV2 spin-off show Extra Camp. Both celebs are former campmates, with Joe presenting Extra Camp for the past ten years. Scarlett first joined the show in 2017 following her jungle victory the year before.
Now, Joe has decided to give up his annual trip Down Under in order to spend more time with girlfriend Stacey Solomon and their baby son Rex, who was born in May 2019. Meanwhile, Scarlett revealed that she wanted to be at home for more of the festive period this year, especially after having spent six weeks abroad filming a new show called The British Tribe Next Door.
Scarlett wrote in an emotional Instagram statement: ‘The jungle absolutely changed my life and I am massively grateful to everybody who voted for me whilst in the jungle and for your constant support to date and everybody who tuned in to Extra Camp. Massive thank you to all the team…’
So, who will be appearing alongside comedian Joel Dommett this year? It has now been revealed that Inbetweeners actress and last year’s jungle runner-up Emily Atack will be joining the Extra Camp presenting team, with 2016 campmate and former Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas also joining the ranks.
Speaking about her new job, Emily revealed: ‘I’m thrilled that I get to make more amazing memories in a place that means so much to me. I’ve loved working with Joel on Singletown, we’re like brother and sister, and Adam has got such amazing energy. The three of us are going to have the best time ever!’
