Though Ant’s been sorely missed in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Holly has been doing a great job and a lot of people are even going as far as to say that she’s a better addition to the show than the Geordie co-host.

It was recently revealed that she was being payed a whopping £2.5 million for her services in the jungle and while that’s objectively too much money to justify, if anyone deserves it for presenting, it’s her.

Meanwhile, Ant remains at home, maybe watching the show and recovering from the testing times he’s had, trying to put addiction and drink-driving behind him, whilst negotiating a tricky divorce.

Or so we thought…

As it turns out, Ant McPartlin has been heavily involved in this season of I’m a Celeb, just not in front of the camera.

ITV’s Emma Jesson was the one to break the news, tweeting:

I am informed that Ant was consulted for scripted Holly & Dec links for @imacelebrity series 2018 #imacelebrity⁠ ⁠ #ImACeleb⁠ ⁠ @Ant_McPartlin @antanddec … top move production team if this is the case, can see his hallmarks there.

So Ant’s still knocking about, writing the scripts for I’m a Celeb, eh? That’s pretty nice.

The man has made some mistakes but it’s good that he can try and get back on his feet, still working with his best friend, Dec, in any way he can.

Makes you wonder who they’re going to get to present the next season though. For some reason I can see it being Holly Willoughby and someone like Stephen Mulhern.

Only time will tell…
