Stacey Solomon has been dropped from presenting the spin-off show for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The show, called Extra Camp, was given a shake-up last year as all the previous hosts were dropped from the show except Joe Swash, Stacey's boyfriend who has presented the spin-off since winning in 2008.

Stacey, who won the show in 2010, was brought in along with fellow previous winner Vicky Pattison and comedian Chris Ramsey, but her representative confirmed her departure this morning.

They told the MailOnline: "I can confirm that Stacey will not be returning to I'm A Celebrity."

However, it even seems that Joe's place on the line-up could also apparently be in jeopardy, despite being one of the spin-off's longest-serving presenters.

According to a show insider, show bosses were "really happy with what they did" last year, but they sadly "won't fit" into what they're planning to do next year.

The insider, who spoke to The Sun, went on: "The thinking this time around is to have a complete revamp in the format and Stacey unfortunately doesn't quite fit into that.

"Joe may still have a role but that hasn't been decided."

They added that everyone on the show would "miss" Stacey "and Joe if he leaves" because "they're great fun."

The Sun also claim that last year's I'm A Celeb winner Scarlett Moffatt is already signed up to take over hosting the show, returning to the jungle alongside her pals and Saturday Night Takeaway co-hosts, Ant and Dec.

Ant's place on the show was unsure after he entered rehab for alcohol and prescription drug addiction, but he is confirmed to return to the jungle alongside Dec when it begins later this year.
