A British tradition is under threat this Christmas, as Ant McPartlin may not be present to co-host I’m A Celebrity alongside Declan Donnelly.
And our traders have priced up who ITV bosses would draft in to replace him, if he’s unable to recover in time for the show, with Love Island host Caroline Flack top of the betting (6/4).
Breakfast TV favourite Holly Willoughby (2/1), TOWIE alumni and now US telly host Mark Wright (5/2), and last year’s winners Scarlett Moffatt (10/3) are all leading contenders.

While, despite his partner’s potential absence, we still make Dec heavily odds-on (1/6) to front the show.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Usually, Z-list celebrities are scrambling to appear on I’m A Celebrity as contestant – but now it seems like a top job might be available.
“Caroline might have copped a lot of Flack for her time fronting X Factor, but her experience on Love Island should have served her well for getting lucky Down Under.”
