This means Holly is set to have a full schedule as she will need to fly back to the UK at the weekends to film Dancing On Ice alongside Phillip.

A source told The Sun: “Holly loved I’m a Celeb so much it gave her the confidence to strike out on her own and do more mainstream solo TV projects. Holly did an excellent job filling in for Ant and was one of the highlights of the show that year.

“She has high career ambitions and is starting the year as she means to go on.”

The insider added: “However, she absolutely loves This Morning and her on-screen partnership with Phillip, so isn’t going anywhere long-term. She’s just grateful ITV bosses are giving her the freedom to do her own projects.”

According to the Mirror, there have been rumours Holly might depart her role on This Morning for some time – but she has denied the claims.

“I never think like that. I feel very lucky to be on that show. The show changes so much, I think that’s the beauty of This Morning,” she said, “Recently it’s had the highest ratings it’s had in 15 years. It’s doing really, really well which is extraordinary for a show that’s been around for as long as it has. And I think because it changes and it evolves and it adapts.”

She added: “But I think that show has something to teach us a little bit; as long as we keep evolving and changing and moving on and happy to flow with things.”

Holly clearly loves working with her her co-presenter and close friend Phil, as she continued: “I’m very lucky to work with Phil. I can’t imagine a world without him being there. It just wouldn’t be the same. The magic of that show is us two together when we’re together.”
