“Obviously ANT and DEC are always going to be the hosts of the categorical show, but producers have tended to tinker around with Extra Camp, changing hosts, tweaking the format and even changing the name.
“Unfortunately Chris is going to be one of those to face the axe, along with Vicky, but bosses very much enjoyed operative with him.”
A mouthpiece for Chris pronounced he would be operative on a Comedy Central plan when I’m A Celeb is back in November, but added: “He loves the show so will really make time to locate up and knows the new group will have a shining time like he did.”

Great news for Ant – and the rest of us.

JENNIE McALPINE who plays Underworld worker Fiz in the ITV soap, said: “The directors and the producers don’t trust us with needles since we speak so much, so we don’t actually have needles in any of those machines as a rule.
“When the time comes and they are needed, we have a man who comes in and puts the needles in the machines, and we have to have a health and reserve briefing.
“It’s utterly right though, since we’d be a calamity if we had needles in all the time.
“Can you imagine, with all that gossiping, and then we went to use the machines to sew?

No needles on set is really a good idea.
