    Dec’s co-host Holly Willoughby meanwhile flew separately with her family, making a stop off in Sydney for a Marks and Spencer photoshoot.   

    The ITV star splashed out £19,000 on one of the most expensive flights in the world to celebrate her success as a co-host of I’m a Celebrity.

    The presenter paid for a one-way ticket on Etihad’s ‘penthouse in the sky’ where she is served by her own butler and has a chef prepare her meals on the 25-hour flight home from Australia.

    She also has the luxury of her own bathroom and shower as well as a separate living room to relax in during the long flight back to London.

    Holly’s three children and her parents are flying home in first class but the family will be allowed to join her in the three room suite for the duration of the flight. Her husband Dan Baldwin flew home a few days ago.

    The latest series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has proved to be the most successful yet, garnering the show its highest ratings in its entire history.

    A peak audience of 12.1million viewers tuned in to watch Harry Redknapp crowned the King of the Jungle on Sunday night’s finale, capping off weeks of record-breaking numbers for ITV’s 16-year-old ratings juggernaut.

    And while viewing figures were cause for celebration, fans of the reality show were in unison in their praise for Dec’s co-host Holly, gushing that she’d ‘breathed new life’ into the series, after stepping in to temporarily replace Ant McPartlin, who is taking time away from screens following his drink driving conviction and time in rehab.

    Amid the glowing praise were calls for Holly to present the show every year — a dream which could well become a reality, as it’s reportedly been proposed that the blonde beauty join Ant and Dec in Australia once they’re finally reunited next year.

      According to the 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.
