Chris Ramsey has been dropped from ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ spin-off ‘Extra Camp’.
The news of the axe of the 31-year-old comedian comes in the wake of Vicky Pattison also being ditched due to an overhaul of the ITV2 programme.
The show has decided to keep real-life couple Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon as the current only hosts, but it is believed producers will be bringing in some as-yet unannounced new faces, and are even considering changing the name of the popular programme.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Bosses love the ‘Extra Camp’ format and think it’s a great part of the whole ‘I’m A Celebrity…’ package, but they felt it could do with a shake-up.
“Obviously Ant and Dec are always going to be the hosts of the main show, but producers have tended to tinker around with ‘Extra Camp’, changing hosts, tweaking the format and even changing the name.
“Unfortunately Chris is going to be one of those to face the axe, along with Vicky, but bosses very much enjoyed working with him.”
Chris is unlikely to mind however, with his spokesperson saying he’ll be busy working on a Comedy Central project when ‘I’m A Celebrity…’ takes place.
The representative added: “He loves the show so will definitely make time to catch up and knows the new team will have a brilliant time like he did.”
