Known for hosting the hit series Love Island and X Factor, Caroline Flack is definitely a strong contender to replace Ant. She’s the Paddy Power’s favorite at the moment. “Caroline might have copped a lot of Flack for her time fronting X Factor, but her experience on Love Island should serve her well,” said a spokeperson to the company.
Scarlett Moffatt | Odds: 10/3

2016 Queen of the Jungle, Scarlett Moffatt is said to be returning as the presenter of Extra Camp, a spin-off of I’m a Celebrity… According to the Daily Mail, the producers found last year’s Extra Camp too chaotic so they want a change. Moffatt is rumored to join two other presenters. If the producers find her a possible presenter of the spin-off, she might as well join Dec on the original.
Holly Willoughby | Odds: 2/1

UK news sources have thrown in Holly Willoughby’s name as the ideal presenter around July. Since then, there have been many people denying her involvement in the show. It’s a “total nonsense” and “purely speculative,” said her representative about the rumors. Yet still, Willoughby has pretty good odds to become the host of I’m a celebrity…
Joel Dommett | Odds: 10/1

2016 runner-up, Joel Dommett has been confirmed as one of the Extra Camp presenters, alongside Scarlett Moffatt (10/3). “After last year’s Jungle experience which was a dream come true, I can’t believe I’m so lucky to have the dream continue by being part of this amazing show and joining the ITV2 Extra Camp team,” he said. Do you think the comedian could host the main show as well?
