Referencing her hilarious confession that she used to fancy Lumiere the candlestick from Beauty and the Beast, Emily penned: ‘What do I ever say. I smell like fire, I have never, ever, EVER felt happier, I am beyond thankful for every single one of you legends who backed me.

‘Thank you. Cockroaches stink! Harry, my king. I’m off to get with a candle at the wrap party. I love you and I’m so grateful.’

The party may have been an evening affair, but the campmates had been drinking all day, after toasting the new Jungle King with champagne at 9am their time. 

The day of drinking seemed to have taken it’s toll on new host Holly Willoughby, as she made a drunken appearance on her show This Morning on Monday.

The presenter appeared live via video link from the show’s wrap party with a drink in hand, sending viewers, and her regular This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield wild.

Clutching a Margarita, Holly told Phil and Rochelle Humes that she was enjoying being up late in Australia, after having a strict 5:30pm bedtime during filming because of her early starts. 

‘This is the latest I have been up!’ she exclaimed. ‘I usually go to bed at 5:30PM. Get up at 2AM. I’ve never see night-time out here!’

She added that she had ‘walked out of the wrap party with a Margarita’ to chat with Phil and Rochelle, quipping: ‘I look like I’ve fallen out with my boyfriend and loitering on the streets.’

Fans were in hysterics at Holly’s antics, with one tweeting: ‘drunk holly is the best I’ll take a glass of what ever she is having.’  

As she headed to the ITV series’ wrap party, Holly was dressed to impress in some fun ‘jungle massive’ hair slides and clutching a glass of wine in a snap shared to her Instagram page. 

The presenter, who has won rave reviews for her hosting stint with Declan Donnelly, looked teary-eyed as she posed on a rooftop in the Instagram pic.

She had nearly made it through her drink in the snap, captioned ‘party time’, taken hours after she had viewers in hysterics by enjoying a glass of champagne live on air.

Holly and Dec appeared on spin off show Extra Camp after wrapping the main show, where they were greeted with glasses of bubbly, 12 hours before her interview on This Morning.

Fans laughed as they pointed out Holly barely put her glass down as she chatted to Scarlett Moffatt, Joe Swash and Joel Dommett.  

While she has raved about her time Down Under, Holly spilled to Phil and Rochelle on Monday that she actually cried during one Bushtucker Trial, in a moment that was cut from the show.

The presenter, who has a self confessed huge fear of creepy crawlys, confessed: 

‘During the colosseum task with Fleur and Sair, this didn’t make the cut, but I actually ran out – one green ant bit me and I burst into tears and I ran out as I was so embarrassed.’

‘They were covered in them in the task… I was laughing and crying, so embarrassed, after that I thought you have to pull yourself together now, stay there and see it through to the end.’

Holly seemed delighted as she wrapped up the 2018 season with a sweet family photo on Monday, gushing ‘Thank you for having us…’

According to Daily Star, executives are keen to have the This Morning presenter back on screens after the show received its highest ever viewing figures, with a whopping 12.6 million tuning in to watch the star’s first week.

A source told the publication: ‘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.
