Michelle Keegan front-runner to replace Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice. Holly Willoughby announced on Sunday that she was stepping down as team captain on Celebrity Juice.
Michelle Keegan has been named as the favorite to replace Holly Willoughby on the next series of Celebrity Juice. Holly, 39, announced on Sunday that she would be quitting her role as team captain on the hit ITV2 show after 12 years.
Fans now believe that 32-year-old Michelle will take her place on the panel opposite Mel B, joining host Keith Lemon. Gamblers have flocked to bookmakers to place bets on Michelle taking over, making her the new bookies' favorite.
Coral's spokesman John Hill has exclusively told OK! online it would come as "no surprise" if Michelle was to join the show.
He said: "After leaving her role in Our Girl, Michelle Keegan is likely to have some time on her hands so we make her one of the front-runners to replace Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice.
"The popular actress has been a hit on the show before so it would be no surprise if she took up the role permanently."
Michelle is in the lead with odds of 4/1, with Scarlett Moffatt just behind her with odds of 9/2.
People also think Fearne Cotton could make a return to show, with odds for her and Emma Bunton both at 5/1. Paddy McGuinness, who replaced Fearne when she quit, Eamonn Holmes and Claudia Winkleman are all at 6/1.
The bookies' initial favorite Kelly Brook currently sits with odds of 8/1, where she is joined by Rufus Hound. Holly announced she was quitting Celebrity Juice in an emotional Instagram post over the weekend.
She wrote to her 6.6million followers: "Thank you @celebjuiceofficial for 12 years of fantastic chaos...
"I can't quite believe what we've done and how quickly that time has gone. Thank you to you all for watching..we've always had the loudest and best audiences.
"Also a huge thank you to @itv2 for believing in the show in the first place and for all of your support...Over the years the production team has changed, however to anyone lucky enough to have worked on the show, they will know that we really do have the best time, it's never felt like work and always been to me like a night out.
