Ant is also expected to return to ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ after Holly Willoughby stepped in for him for the 2018 series, which concluded last week.

At the ITV show’s after party on Monday, Dec added to the Mirror of Holly: ‘There is nobody I would have preferred to stood next to.

‘We were thrilled with the ratings, they are absolutely great. Holly has been fantastic too, just brilliant. She was the one I wanted and I am thrilled she did it.’

A peak audience of 12.1million viewers tuned in to watch Harry Redknapp crowned the King of the Jungle on Sunday night’s finale, capping off weeks of record-breaking numbers for ITV’s 16-year-old ratings juggernaut.

And while viewing figures were cause for celebration, fans of the reality show were in unison in their praise for co-host Holly, gushing that she’d ‘breathed new life’ into the series, after stepping in to temporarily replace Ant.

Amid the glowing praise were calls for Holly to present the show every year — a dream which could well become a reality, as it’s reportedly been proposed that the blonde beauty join Ant and Dec in Australia once they’re finally reunited next year. 

According to the Daily Star, executives are keen to have the This Morning presenter back on screens after the show received its highest ever viewing figures, with a whopping 12.6 million tuning in to watch the star’s first week.

A source told the publication: ‘The original plan was for Holly to stand in while Ant was off and then hand the baton back. But she’s been such a success that producers are now keen to keep her whatever happens.

‘Many presenters would have crumbled under the pressure of joining such a big show, but Holly stepped up to the plate. The top people at ITV are now really keen to get her back next year.

‘It now depends on whether or not she wants to do another series. Being in Australia for five weeks is a big commitment. She has her family to think about. “And she also has her commitments at This Morning to think about’, they added.

The insider also shared that bosses are set to present an offer to Holly by March next year.

Representatives for Holly and ITV declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
