I’m A Celebrity spin-off show is WRITTEN OFF by ITV bosses and replaced by a podcast starring Scarlett Moffatt and Seann Walsh
ITV bosses have scrapped I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’s spin-off show for good and replaced it with a podcast hosted by Scarlett Moffatt and Seann Walsh.
Former winner Scarlett, 32, and comedian Seann, 37, who competed on the show last year, will comment on the upcoming All Stars series in South Africa.
From 2002 to 2019, ITV broadcast two I’m A Celeb spin-off shows, Get Me Out Of Here…Now and The Daily Drop.
Now was hosted by several stars including Caroline Flack, Emma and Matt Willis and Laura Whitmore, while Vick Hope presented The Daily Drop.
A source told The sun bosses have decided to drop the format for good, saying: “The spin-off didn’t run during the pandemic, but when Ant and Dec returned to Australia in 2022 and there was no updated format, the writing seemed to be on the wall.

“Viewing habits are constantly changing, so launching a podcast is a great idea and shows that the program has legs to adapt to trends.”
Seann said: ‘I had the most amazing experience with I’m A Celebrity last year so I can’t wait to get back to the Jungle world with the first ever I’m A Celeb podcast.
‘Scarlett and I will discuss everything, no subject is off limits and this time I will sleep in my own bed. I can not wait!’
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here Now, last aired in 2019 with Emily Atack, Joel Dommett and Adam Thomas fronting the show.
The series was discontinued that year due to high production costs, with Vick Hope presenting the online show The Daily Drop for one series only in 2020.
Scarlett is currently expecting her first child with boyfriend Scott Dobinson.
The former Gogglebox star recently revealed that she is expecting a baby boy.
The TV presenter took to Instagram last month to reveal the happy news, writing: “In the great words of the Beatles…”Here comes the SON.”

“Imagine the scene, me and Scott are going to see if we’re having a little boy or a little girl.
‘We decide that we are going to open the envelope at home with the two of us, well, we only got to the first set of traffic lights before we opened it.
“Lots of happy tears and excitement and then we rushed to tell both our parents and my nanny and aunt Kirsty.
“It wasn’t a reveal party, but it was very us and we wouldn’t have had it any other way.”
Scarlett shared a clip of herself starting in black and white showing her walking to her kitchen where there was a bunch of flowers on the counter.
She placed a box of roses next to the vase, and the video then transitioned to color to show that the roses were blue.

Scarlett announced her pregnancy news shortly after celebrating her four-year anniversary with Scott.
At the time, Scarlett took to Instagram to post a photo of herself and the police officer.
Scarlett – who has known Scott for over a decade – wrote on the photo-sharing platform: “Four years have been together and it’s gone by so fast, yet I still feel like I’ve been with you all my life.
Me and Bonnie love you all the world @scottdobby #anniversary. (sic)’
