This Morning host Holly will be joining Dec in this year's series on ITV.

Holly Willoughby has been pictured in the I'm a Celebrity jungle for the first time, alongside Declan Donnelly.

She will be joining Dec for this year's series, as Ant McPartlin continues to take time away from TV work.

It is the first time we've seen Holly and Dec together for the show, which returns on Sunday (November 18) at 9pm on ITV.

Uploading a photo on Ant & Dec's Instagram, Dec wrote: "Ant’s looking well don’t you think!? I’m joking of course, Holly and I are looking forward to welcoming you to Australia next Sunday night. D"

Earlier this year, Ant said of Holly's arrival: “My recovery is going very well and for that to continue having spoken to Dec and ITV, I have made the decision to take the rest of the year off.

“I’d like to thank both Dec and ITV for their continued support and I look forward to getting back to work in the new year.”

Holly has said: “I think if I look at a spider in a tank that's absolutely fine, but if one comes out of a tank or is on a celebrity’s back after a Bushtucker Trial then I'm not going to like that.

“I think I'm going to have a problem with smells also, as Dec keeps telling me that cockroaches really stink. I'm going to be useless during the eating trial, I don't even like it if someone eats with their mouth open.”
