The star of Inbetweeners, is thought to be the front-runner for the spin-off  I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'s Extra Camp.

It was announced last week, Scarlett and Joe Swash were quitting the show, but Joel Dommett is staying with the job. Now that ITV bosses are looking for his new co-host, sources say Emily is the perfect choice.

An insider told The Sun: "Emily charmed I'm A Celeb viewers with her bubbly personality and self-deprecating jokes. She's a professional and can handle herself live on camera. She has great energy and doesn't take herself too seriously.  She's been open this year about being comfortable in her own skin and producers think she represents real women. She is already mates with Joel."

The source added that bosses were planning to book another male presenter to replace Joe, and that the show will work better with a trio of presenters, with Joel at the helm.

This November we will also see the return of Ant, to host the show with his best mate Dec.
