HOLLY WILLOUGHBY, who hosts This Morning alongside Phillip Schofield, was shocked to learn she was getting a brand new co-host on the show today.

On This Morning, it was revealed who would be replacing Holly Willoughby’s best pal, Fearne Cotton, 37, on Celebrity Juice.

It was confirmed Paddy McGuiness would be joining the Keith Lemon fronted ITV show and Holly, 38, admitted she was surprised to be the only female panelist.

She spilled: “Paddy is pretty much always on the show anyway, so he kind of already feels like part of the family so it was a bit of a no brainer.

“He’s a very different boy to Keith.”


She continued: “At first I was like ‘Oh gosh, I’m going to be the only girl’, but actually…”

Holly won’t be the only female as Loose Women panelist Stacey Solomon will also be joining the team as a series regular.

Speaking about joining the series, Stacey, 29, said: “I’m so bloomin’ excited to be joining the Juice family.

“I have loved the show since it began and always enjoyed being a guest so to get to be part of the furniture is a dream come true. So here goes nothing. Wahoo.”

Paddy McGuinness added: “I was a guest on the first ever episode and I’ve done every series since so I’ve always felt like part of the Juice family.

“Keith’s one of my best mates, I love Holly and we all have a natural rapport. I’m looking forward to the chaos!”

The new series will be returning to TV screens in March with many celebrity guests including Amanda Holden, Emily Atack, Will Mellor and Johnny Vegas.

Meanwhile, Holly made a revelation about her husband on the programme yesterday as she revealed he criticises her driving.

During a segment, viewers were encouraged to call up for advice over being criticised by someone.

Holly joined in on the topic after agony aunt Vanessa Feltz, 57, exclaimed her husband, Ben Ofoedu, 46, comments on her driving skills.

“I’m always the driver, 100 per cent of the time for nearly 13 years,” Vanessa announced. “But does it stop him criticising me? No it doesn’t!”

“I have this slightly,” Holly chipped in. “I have it too.

“I do not like overtaking cyclists at all,” she explained. “As soon as there’s a cyclists in front of me I’m like, oh my god just please turn left, please just get off the road, because I can’t do it. I hate it.”

Opening up about her husband Dan’s reaction to her nerves around cyclists, the presenter admitted: “And Dan, now, looks at me…

“All he has to do is do that,” Holly continued, turning he head to the side to look at Phillip. “And I’m like, ‘Stop it! Because I know you’re going to make a big deal of the fact I’m going to sit behind this cyclist until they move!’

Holly went on to reveal her tactic for distracting herself from Dan’s critical looks, saying she turns the radio up.
