And as it’s revealed that Holly Willoughby will be bringing her children with her, she  has admitted that she is ‘always broody’ and would love to have another baby.

The mother-of-three, 37, already shares Harry, nine, Belle, seven, and Chester, four, with her husband Dan Baldwin.

In an interview with The Daily Star, the This Morning presenter said: ‘I’m always broody.

‘Part of me wants another baby but part of me thinks that’s not a good enough reason!

‘I’ve almost decided not to… but not quite.’

The confession comes as she’s due to jet off to Australia with her three children to stand in as a replacement for Ant McPartlin on the upcoming series of I’m A Celeb!.

Speaking to Stella Magazine about her new presenting slot on ITV, the blonde beauty added: ‘From the point I said “yes” my whole focus has been working out the family logistics.

‘The kids are coming out to Australia so we’ve had to organise tutors. My mum and dad are joining us and Dan will fly back and forth.’  

The TV star added the role was one she never wanted to be offered since she never wanted to see her two friends, Dec and Ant, separated, having all grown up in the business together.

Yet Holly said she felt ‘honoured’ that Dec had trusted her to fulfil the position and told Ant that she ‘would look after Dec for him’.    

She added she was ‘honoured’ that Declan Donnelly is letting her step in to take over while his presenting partner takes a break from the spotlight.  

The Celebrity Juice star said: ‘It was a job I never wanted to be offered, because no one ever wanted the day to come when it was Dec without Ant.

‘We all grew up in this business together, we live near each other and all our families are friends.

‘But I felt really honoured that Dec trusted me to do it because it’s such a huge deal for him to work with someone else.’   

She recently revealed in an interview that she’s known as ‘Little Miss No’ for turning down work projects for fear of spending too little time with her family.     

‘If my career ended tomorrow, I know I would be absolutely OK. But if things went wrong between me and Dan it would be the end of my world,’ she confessed.

Meanwhile the presenter has reportedly been told that she needs to harden up before entering the Jungle. 

Speaking on This Morning, the squeamish star declared: ‘Three things I’m not looking forward to – the eating something challenge. It’s going to be horrible!

‘The smells, I’m not good with smells! And when they come out with the stuff… What have I done?’

Holly confirmed that she would be co-hosting I’m A Celebrity last month in a statement, in which she quipped: ‘When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves?’

Co-host Phillip Schofield also pointed out her fear of critters recently, as he took to Snapchat to quip: ‘Holly in a jungle… where everything will scare her s***less… literally can’t wait.’
