I’m a Celeb … Get Me Out of Here! presenter Declan Donnelly has actually admitted that he made it clear that he wasn’t going to deal with another male on the 2018 series after co-presenter Ant McPartlin took a year off.
Back in 2018, Ant validated that he wouldn’t be hosting that year’s I’m A Celeb with Dec as the duo launched a joint statement in which Ant specified he would be concentrating on his recovery after a spell in rehabilitation.
Dec has now admitted in his and Ant’s brand-new book that there was “no way” he would have worked with any of the male presenters being suggested as possible co-hosts, including Phillip Schofield and Saturday Night Takeaway preferred Stephen Mulhern.
” Initially there was a lot of speculation as to who it would be, with individuals saying Stephen Mulhern or Phillip Schofield ought to get the job,” Dec wrote in When Upon A Tyne(via The Sun).
” But right from the really, extremely starting there was no other way I was going to host the show with another male. I didn’t desire to have another man standing on the same side that Ant stood.
” I didn’t want it to appear that another person was actioning in to take Ant’s place, since they weren’t. And because no one ever could.”
Ant was then offered an opportunity to respond in the book, adding: “We’ve discussed this prior to, but that’s the very first time I have actually heard you say all of that at when and it indicates the bloody world.”
Ant and Dec will go back to host a completely different variation of I’m a Star this year, as coronavirus-related travel limitations suggest that the program will occur in the UK instead of Australia for the very first time in its near-20 year run.
The good news is, ITV employer Kevin Lygo confirmed that the celeb line-up has already been verified for this year, which everyone is still “delighted” to be a part of the show, regardless of the modification in location.
” We had scheduled most of our superstars, we were worried they thought they were going to hot sunny bug-infested Australia and now they are going to north Wales in the dark, however everyone is still there and delighted,” he confirmed.
As Soon As Upon a Tyne: Our Story Celebrating 30 Years Together on Telly is out now, while I’m a Star will return later on this year on ITV.
