Wednesday 27th February 2019, 11:28am

It has been confirmed today that Paddy McGuinness will replace Fearne Cotton on Celebrity Juice.

Stacey Solomon will also join the panel show team as a regular panellist alongside Keith Lemon and Holly Willoughby when the panel show returns to ITV2 in March.

Paddy – a long-term collaborator with Keith Lemon actor Leigh Francis – takes over from Fearne Cotton who, at the end of last year, announced she was leaving the show after “ten fun filled years” to pursue other projects.

Paddy McGuinness says: “I was a guest on the first ever episode and I’ve done every series since so I’ve always felt like part of the Juice family. Keith’s one of my best mates, I love Holly and we all have a natural rapport. I’m looking forward to the chaos!”

Stacey Solomon comments: “I’m so bloomin’ excited to be joining the Juice family. I have loved the show since it began and always enjoyed being a guest so to get to be part of the furniture is a dream come true. So here goes nothing. Wahoo.”

The producers say: “Viewers will be able to see the exciting new line up on the most outrageous show on the telebox when Celebrity Juice returns to our screens in March. Across the 10-part series, viewers can expect the usual mix of hilarious games, stunts, challenges and celebrity guests.”

Executive Producer Jonno Richards comments: “We can’t wait to get started with Paddy, Holly and Keith on a brand series of Juice. With this line-up, anything could happen!”

Saskia Schuster, ITV‘s Comedy Controller, adds: “We welcome Paddy and Stacey to the Celebrity Juice gang. All we can predict is unpredictability as they take their seats for the new series. Bring it on!”

The first episode of the new series will be recorded on 12th March at Elstree Film Studios (tickets are available). Guests across the new series will include Amanda Holden, Emily Atack, Will Mellor and Johnny Vegas, with more to be announced.
