Vicky Pattison 'in talks' to present I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! NOW!
Vicky Pattison has been "in talks" to present 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! NOW!'
The 28-year-old beauty - who won the main show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' last year - has confirmed she's been having meetings with ITV bosses about hosting the spin-off following Laura Whitmore's recent departure.
Speaking on 'The Radio 1 Breakfast Show' on Thursday (28.07.16), the brunette beauty said: "I would snatch their hands off, I really would [if I was offered the hosting role]. There have been names thrown around [since Laura's departure]. There are talks but nothing is confirmed."
However, if Vicky does get the gig Down Under, the news will unlikely sit well with her fellow 'Loose Women' panellist Katie Price as the former glamour model is keen to helm the programme alongside her ex-husband Peter Andre.
The 38-year-old star - who met and fell in love with Peter when they were competing on the main show in 2004 - took to her Twitter account recently to write: "I would sooo present this how cool if me and Pete did it. (sic)"
And Vicky's ex-fiancé Ricci Guarnaccio - who split from the beauty in 2013 - also has his eye on the jungle-based panel show now that he permanently lives in Australia.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz recently: "To be honest, I would love to present 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! NOW!' 100 per cent. I would do and if it falls in place with what I'm getting on with, it would be spot on."
Meanwhile, bosses' frantic search for a new host comes as Laura - who had fronted the late-night chatty programme since 2011 - announced earlier this year that she is turning her back on the programme after five "incredible years" at the helm in order to spread her wings.
