I’m A Celebrity faces presenter crisis as two popular hosts quit on same day
I'm A Celebrity is facing a presenter crisis after Joe Swash and Scarlett Moffatt both announced they are quitting.
The pair have stepped down from hosting duties on ITV2 spin-off show Extra Camp ahead of the 2019 series.
Former EastEnders star Joe has taken part in 10 series since becoming a show regular in 2009.
Announcing his departure on Instagram , Joe revealed he wanted to spend more time with partner Stacey Solomon and their kids.
While ex-Goggle Box star Scarlett, who started hosting in 2017 after being crowned Queen of the Jungle, revealed she was also leaving to focus on a new project.
Comedian Joel Dommett, who has also presented Extra Camp for the past two years, has remained quiet on whether he will be back this year.
Joe announced the news on Instagram with a picture of himself walking across the famous bridge after becoming King of the Junhle.
The caption read: "I can’t believe I’m about to say this… For 10 incredible years I’ve been lucky enough to host my favourite show on telly. Being a part of the I’m a Celebrity After Show has been everything I could have dreamed of and more.
"But I’ve come to the decision that this year I’m going to have to leave my jungle family and stay home with my wonderful real family. I don’t want to miss a second with Stacey and our amazing boys so 3 months in Australia just seems too make to bare this year.
"I’m so grateful for everything the jungle has given me and for all of the people who have took me under their wing and given me memories to last a lifetime. I’ve made some unbelievable friends in fact family in oz and I’ll miss you all terribly.
" @antanddec thank you boys for showing me how it’s done and keeping me on my toes I’ll be watching every night missin ya both!
"Well It’s not goodbye forever but just for now. Thanks for the memories @imacelebrity it’s been emotional.
"Signing off for now and all i have left to say is… “Olly, Olly, Olly, tits in the trolley, balls in a biscuit tin. Sitting on the grass, with your finger up your arse, playing with your ding a ling a ling!”
Shortly afterwards, Scarlett made a similar post on Instagram alongside a photo of herself, Joe and Joel during the Celebrity Cyclone challenge.
She said: "For 3 years I have enjoyed a jungle life, being crowned queen of the jungle and having the greatest time presenting extra camp with Swashy and Joel who I now class as best friends.
"The jungle absolutely changed my life and I am massively grateful to everybody who voted for me whilst in the jungle and for your constant support to date and everybody who tuned in to extra camp
"Massive thank you to all the team including Richard, Angela, Toni, pecks and of course @antanddec and @hollywilloughby @joeldommett and @realjoeswashy but I have got a project that I’ve been working on (alongside my family) that I am very very excited to announce soon.
"And because of this unfortunately I will not be presenting this years extra camp but I will certainly be tuning in LONG LIVE THE JUNGLE
