Rochelle Humes 'To Replace' Holly Willoughby On This Morning During I'm A Celeb Stint

Rochelle Humes is reportedly set to step in for Holly Willoughby on This Morning as she heads down under to present I'm A Celeb alongside Declan Donnelly.

Holly is replacing Ant McPartlin in the jungle, who is taking time off work following a car crash and a second stint in rehab earlier this year.

The Saturdays popstar is said to be over the moon by her new TV gig, and will be appearing on the ITV chat show alongside longtime host, Phillip Schofield.

Rochelle isn't totally new on the This Morning scene, as she's previously presented in school holidays for Holly Willoughby with her husband, Marvin Humes, as well as Gok Wan on a number of occasions.

"As soon as bosses for This Morning learnt that Holly had accepted the role on I'm A Celebrity they drafted their wish list and Rochelle was at the top," an insider told The Sun.

"Rochelle has been impressing bosses with her down-to-earth nature an d presenting skills for a while now."

The source continued: "Rochelle is super excited about being asked and she knows what a huge career opportunity this is."

It is believed that Rochelle will front the show for five weeks with Phil.

The former popstar has presented a number of different TV and radio shows in the past, including Heart FM, Ninja Warrior UK and The Next Great Magician.
