I’m A Celebrity final: Holly Willoughby SCREAMS with terror as bugs crawl towards her… before breaking down in TEARS at Harry Redknapp’s final trial

Holly Willoughby suffered a rollercoaster of emotions during the I’m A Celebrity final on Sunday, as she went from screaming in fear to shedding tears of distress during the last round of Bushtucker Trials.

The 37-year-old presenter was left cowering behind her co-host Declan Donnelly as cockroaches she had wiped off Emily Atack began to crawl towards her, after she completed the classic Fill Your Face trial.

Later on Holly was also left in tears as she watched eventual series winner Harry face the Danger Down Under trial, admitting to Dec she didn’t like watching ‘such a lovely man’ suffer.

After helping Emily to shake and brush them from their body, she squealed to Dec: ‘They’re coming towards us!’

Running around the clearing and grabbing Dec’s shoulder, she seemed to have a stronger reaction than Emily.

But Dec seemed unsure of what to do, saying to the camera: ‘Somebody help me here for goodness sake.’

Eventually Holly composed herself to bid farewell to Emily as she returned to camp, and after grabbing Dec’s hand the duo made a hasty exit from the set.

It proved to be a roller coaster of a day for Holly, as she later proceeded to break down in tears while watching Harry’s last trial, which saw him laid down in a chamber for five minutes while it began to fill with rats.

Out of nowhere the mother-of-three suddenly got teary-eyed, with Dec reminding her of it later in the studio.

Speaking to the sister show’s hosts Joe Swash, Joel Dommett and Scarlett Moffatt, she said: ‘It’s been everything and more, I’ve been so lucky to have this experience without having to eat anything or have things crawl over me.

‘I’ve literally stepped through the TV screen into one of my fave shows, there’s nothing like this place.’

This comes amid reports that ITV bosses are pulling out all the stops to try and sign Holly for an I’m A Celebrity return next series, alongside Dec and Ant McPartlin.

A source told the Daily Star: ‘The original plan was for Holly to stand in while Ant was off and then hand the baton back. But she’s been such a success that producers are now keen to keep her whatever happens.  

‘Many presenters would have crumbled under the pressure of joining such a big show, but Holly stepped up to the plate. The top people at ITV are now really keen to get her back next year.

‘It now depends on whether or not she wants to do another series. Being in Australia for five weeks is a big commitment. She has her family to think about. And she also has her commitments at This Morning to think about’, they added.

The insider also shared that bosses are set to present an offer to Holly by March next year.  

Representatives for Holly and ITV declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.   

So far the mum-of-three has been received warmly by viewers, with the launch show even drawing in a record-breaking 14 million viewers.
