    Josie Gibson is said to be a frontrunner to replace Holly Willoughby as the host of Dancing on Ice.

    This Morning host Josie has just emerged from the jungle on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, but it seems like she could land herself another lucrative TV venture.

    It's believed ITV bosses think Josie would be a great hit for the ITV skating show as she was a hit with viewers on I'm A Celeb. But it's alleged producers hope Holly will sign up to do the show and are "nervous" about it as the start date approaches.

    A TV insider told The Sun: "Josie’s stint in the jungle shows she has the perfect blend of humility, confidence, humour and unflappability. And she’s already proved she’s able to handle live TV during her time as a co-host on This Morning where she’s also developed quite a following among viewers.

    "ITV will be hoping she’ll bring that popularity across to Dancing On Ice, if she ends up bagging the job in Holly’s absence. ITV are still hoping Holly will sign up.

    "But the situation remains up in the air and nervous producers are now counting down to the start in days rather than weeks. There are several figures who could fill Holly’s role but Josie very much stands out."

    They added: "Even if producers pick a potential Plan B, it will all depend on the availability of the potential candidates." Stephen Mulhern is believed to be replacing Phillip Schofield's role as co-host Dancing on Ice.

    Schofield quit ITV earlier this year after admitting to an affair with a younger male runner on This Morning. Holly left This Morning in October.

    This Morning host Rochelle Humes is also reportedly in the running for the Dancing on Ice job, as is Christine Bleakley, who hosted Dancing on Ice from 2012 and 2014. Daily Star has contacted ITV for comment.
