Holly Willoughby will soon be heading to Australia to fill in for Ant McPartlin on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!. This means that she will need to be temporarily replaced on This Morning, as she will be out of the country for around 5 weeks.

According to The Sun, Holly's replacement for her breakfast presenting show has been revealed. And it's none other than Rochelle Humes who will take up the highly sought after position.

The former The Saturday's singer will be presenting next to Phillip Schofield while Holly works alongside Declan Connelly.

A source told The Sun: "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.

"Obviously, Holly's are big shoes to fill. But Rochelle has been impressing bosses with her down-to-earth nature and presenting skills for a while now.

"Rochelle is super excited about being asked and she knows what a huge career opportunity this is," the source added.

Rochelle, who is married to Marvin Humes, has two young children Alaia-Mai and Valentina Raine. While her background is in music and performing in girl band The Saturdays, Rochelle has got presenting skills under her belt, too.

Currently, she presents on the ITV series Ninja Warrior UK and The Next Great Magician. She's also presented at the Mobo Awards in the past, so we reckon that her appearances on This Morning should be a breeze.

Previously speaking about filling in for Ant on I'm A Celeb, Holly told The Daily Mail Holly that Ant is "happy" the replacement choice. “He was part of the discussion from the off. He’s happy that I’m looking after it until he gets back. It does help that we all know each other," she said.

She did also admit that it's going "weird" for her to present alongside Dec, as she's used to only presenting alongside her This Morning and Dancing On Ice co-star Phillip Schofield.

But she added, “I think it’s going to be much weirder for Dec. I mean he’s only ever worked with Ant."
