Holly Willoughby sees odds slashed on her quitting I’m A Celeb following her debut jungle performance

HOLLY Willoughby has seen the odds of her quitting I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! slashed following her jungle debut last night.

The TV favourite has joined Declan Donnelly in the Aussie outback while his usual co-host, Ant McPartlin, takes an extended break from the spotlight.

However, the This Morning host received a mixed response from viewers at home – with some fans criticising her lack of banter with Dec.

Holly is also incredibly squeamish and ran off-screen as the video trailer for tonight’s first Bushtucker Trial was shown last night.

Now bookmakers have upped the odds on Holly quitting the ITV reality show before the end of the season.

Paddy Power have slashed their odds from 25/1 to 16/1 – with Extra Camp host, and former Queen of the Jungle, Scarlett Moffatt 20/1 favourite to replace the blonde beauty.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power explained: “It’s early days, but watching Dec without Ant just doesn’t quite feel right, and Holly’s already taken some flak for her debut jungle performance.

“So much so that we’ve slashed the likelihood of her bowing out before the series with over, and returning to our screens alongside Philip Schofield.”

Tonight, viewers at home will see Holly scream and run off set when a snake bites Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack during the first Bushtucker Trial of the series.

Jungle medic Bob previously told The Sun that the mum-of-three is “more terrified of jungle critters than all the stars”.

He explained: “All I have to do is talk to her and look at the floor and she goes: ‘What’s on the floor?’

“‘What are you looking at the floor for?’ When they do the trials I think they need a camera just on Holly because she’ll be squirming.”

Bushtucker Trials chief Matt Wilkinson also said that he saw Holly jump out of her skin when she saw a leaf on her leg.
