Holly Willoughby Rings Phillip Schofield While Drunk At I'm A Celeb Party

So, I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! is over and done with for 2018 and Harry Redknapp was, quite rightly, crowned King of the Jungle. For the first time this year, Holly Willoughby stepped up to take part in presenting duties for the hit show, leaving best pal and co-host Phillip Schofield behind on This Morning.

It's fair to assume that Schoey has missed his mate Holly, so he was naturally delighted when she stepped away from the I'm A Celeb wrap party to make a boozy call.

Still Down Under, Holly was knocking back a margarita among the contestants, cast and crew of the hit show, but she took some time away to say hello to Phil and Rochelle Humes, who has stepped into her shoes while she's away.

Holly was spotted drinking a glass of champers shortly after our man Harry won, a whopping 12 hours before she appeared on This Morning via video-link, and the party looked to be still going strong.

Showing off her cocktail, Phil joked that had they done the interview any later she'd have 'been on her knees'.

Just four hours ago, she shared a snap of herself wearing a 'Jungle Is Massive' clip in her hair and smiling in the sunlight, with the caption 'Party Time'.

Speaking to Phil, Holly revealed this was the first late night she'd had since landing in Australia. She had been forced to go to bed at 5.30pm and get up 2am to pick up hosting duties, to fit with UK time.

Naturally fans loved seeing drunk Holly, with one person writing excitably about: "Holly Willoughby's tipsy video call to This Morning. standing outside the I'm A Celeb wrap party with a Jungle Is Massive hair clip in her hair and a glass of margarita."

Another wanted 'a glass of what she's having'. At this time of day? Animals.

Holly proved to be a big hit on the show, with fans heaping praise on her for her first ever stint on the show.

She had a tough act to follow, with best mates and BAFTA-winning duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly presenting the show since it began.

Stepping in as Ant took a break from showbiz following a tough year, Holly quickly won fans over and shushed any doubters who reckoned she wouldn't be up to the job.

Although she's back in the UK next week, Holly won't be back on This Morning until 2019, taking a well-earned break.
