I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here could be at risk of being axed as Declan Donnelly won’t host the show without Ant McPartlin. Sources had claimed that Holly Willoughby was being lined up by ITV bosses to stand in for the TV legend if he isn’t out of rehab in time. However, friends of Dec insist he would never do the job without his presenting partner.
“He has said the last thing he would do is go to Australia without him,” a friend said. “He is a good friend of hers but he would not do that to Ant.”
Ant is currently getting treatment for substance abuse, prescription drugs and alcohol. “The first step is to admit to yourself you need help,” he told The Sun On Sunday. “I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I am truly sorry.” He is expected to leave rehab in August after a two month stint, though it is not known when he will return to work.
