Holly Willoughby made her big return to ITV’s This Morning today after an extended summer break.

And she was quick to talk about both her upcoming hosting duties on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here! and congratulating her future co-host Declan Donnelly on the birth of his first child Isla.

Willoughby revealed that the newborn will likely be travelling to Australia where I’m a Celebrity is filmed, “I can’t wait for cuddles with her. I think she’ll be coming to Australia as well!”

This was followed by her This Morning co-host Phil Schofield asking her about how she feels about hosting from the Aussie jungle.

“When I first found out it’s exciting, bittersweet but exciting. The kids are coming with me so I had to talk to the schools then mum and dad are coming for a bit too.

So when I sorted the logistics I then thought, “There’s going to be spiders there!” she explained.

And while she certainly seemed excited for the upcoming stint, she revealed she’s dreading ‘three things.’

“Three things I’m not looking forward to – the eating something challenge. It’s going to be horrible!

“The smells, I’m not good with smells! And when they come out with the stuff… What have I done?” she said.

Willoughby will be standing in for Ant McPartlin, who is taking a break from his television hosting duties after a public battle with alcoholism.

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here! returns this autumn.
