Laura Whitmore’s career is going from strength to strength. After winning a competition to be an MTV presenter (Pick Me MTV) in 2008, she has gone on to become a popular presenter on the station. Now her audience will get bigger as it has been announced she will be co-hosting I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now! (replacing former host Caroline Flack, who has gone on to co-host the Xtra Factor) with former King of the Jungle & ex-Eastenders actor Joe Swash and comedian Russell Kane.
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now! is the ITV2 aftershow, where viewers get a behind the scenes look at what’s going on on the main show, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!
According to the UK Press Association, Whitmore said “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the I’m A Celebrity family. I can’t wait to get stuck into jungle life, though I will try my best to avoid all those creepy crawlies. I’m really looking forward to getting into all sorts of mischief and mayhem with Joe and Russell. The excitement level is officially off the scale.”
It has not yet been announced who will be heading into the Australian jungle, however there are rumours that Jedward may be going in, as well as Dannii Minogue’s partner Kris Smith and Katie Price’s ex Alex Reid.
Good luck to Laura Whitmore! It’s great to see her doing so well!
