Vogue Williams has reportedly been tipped to replace Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice after she left the show following a 12-year stint.
According to The Sun on Sunday, the Irish presenter, 34, who is married to former Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, 32, is seen as the perfect replacement by bosses when the show resumes filming next month.
An insider said: ‘The pull for Vogue is that she has this aspirational home life with Spencer and the kids but on Celebrity Juice she would show off a side of her you don’t see.

‘Like Holly, Vogue is the perfect role model but then on Celebrity Juice you would see her getting up to all sorts of things.’
The ITV2 comedy series is said to be taking lengths to adhere to social distancing guidelines amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic when filming resumes.
Host Keith Lemon told The Sun: ‘The audience has gone down to 50. They’ve set it out with tables and chairs, it’s going to look like a jazz bar, so that’s going to be cool.
‘Telly seems to have gone to pot, people can’t be closer than two metres apart – advertising revenue has gone down.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Vogue Williams and Celebrity Juice for comment.
Vogue, who is mother to Theodore, 23 months, and Gigi, two months, with Spencer, has previously presented a series of documentaries and won the first series of Bear Grylls: Mission Survive in 2015.
It comes after the news that Holly, 39, is allegedly planning to leave her role on This Morning, after 11 years of presenting the show alongside Phillip Schofield.
The star is said to be seeking other opportunities on prime time TV after setting up her own management company, Roxy Management, earlier this year, a report from The Sun claimed on Saturday.

She is reportedly planning on focusing more on her career now her children Harry, 11, Belle, nine, and Chester, five, are getting older.
A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘Holly is unique in that women like her and want to be her friend and men are attracted to her as she’s so beautiful. She has universal appeal.
‘While she loves This Morning, her four-day-a-week live TV stint is a huge drain on her time and requires a lot of energy, plus she’s been doing it for 11 years now.’
However, a separate spokesperson denied the claims as they told the publication: ‘Holly loves This Morning and working with Phil. She has no plans to leave.’

It was also claimed that Holly has ‘her options option’ for other opportunities, and that This Morning was intending on finding a non-white presenter to fill in Holly’s shoes, should she decide to leave.
MailOnline has contacted Holly, Phillip Schofield and This Morning representatives for comment.
It is understood Holly and Phil are currently earning close to £1 million a year for their roles – up about a quarter from their £750,000 annual salaries.
