I’m A Celebrity have confirmed that Emily Atack and Adam Thomas are joining Extra Camp this year.

Last year’s runner-up and the former Emmerdale actor will be joining Joel Dommett for the nightly ITV2 spin-off show.

The pair will be replacing previous hosts Joe Swash and Scarlett Moffatt, who both announced they were quitting earlier this year.

The trio of jungle fanatics will be joined by celebrity guests, dumped campmates and will go behind-the-scenes down in camp.

Emily Atack said: “I’m thrilled that I get to make more amazing memories in a place that means so much to me. I’ve loved working with Joel on Singletown, we’re like brother and sister, and Adam has got such amazing energy. The three of us are going to have the best time ever!”

Adam Thomas said: “I can’t believe that I’m heading back to the Jungle, this is something I never saw coming my way! I’m so excited to be reunited with my campmate Joel and to also work alongside Emily. We’re going to have so much fun…just keep me away from those spiders!”

Joel Dommett said: “So excited to be heading back to the Jungle this year – this time with a new bunch of amigos. I can’t wait to show Emily around and keep reminding Adam that I beat him in 2016. It’s such a huge privilege to do this show and I truly love it. I can’t wait to find out who we are watching!”

Colin Hopkins, the show’s Exec Producer, added: “Joel, Emily and Adam literally can’t wait to get into the Jungle to give our loyal viewers the biggest and best exclusives from the camp. They’ll uncover the juiciest of Jungle life gossip, interview their favourite celebrities and take on some of the hardest trials from this year’s show (just don’t tell Adam!)”

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!”

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.

In the caption, 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
