He told The Daily Star:  “I’m trying to get one up on Holly. I’m trying to break her record for one person doing the most shows on telly.

“We’re already competing – so when she got the I’m A Celebrity gig last year I was devastated! I have got quite a few to go to catch up with her.”

Paddy is a popular TV presenter, famed for Take Me Out, as well as recently landing a role on Top Gear.

Holly however is the daytime TV queen thanks to her This Morning job but this year saw her also take over I’m A Celebrity.

She also hosts Dancing On Ice.

Holly and Paddy will however soon be going head to head on Celebrity Juice as Paddy has recently been announced as a new team captain alongside Holly.

Paddy will be taking over from Fearne Cotton, who decided to leave the show last year after ten years.

The news came as a surprise as Emily Atack was the widely tipped favourite to take over.

A source told the Mirror at the time: “It might seem a shock but he was everyone’s No1.

“When he’s on Celebrity Juice, the ratings shoot up to their highest. Bosses are hoping he’ll be a ratings winner.”
