A TV source told The Sun: ‘Netflix are splashing the cash and all the celebrities taking part as contestants are bagging at least six figures.

‘It won’t be a walk in the park though. The celebs will learn survival skills and take part in challenges, before being hunted down by Bear himself.

‘Holly has the elevated role of host, so she won’t be getting her hands dirty.

‘She’ll be perfectly placed to get her own back on her old pal.’

Keith worked with Holly on Celebrity Juice – which is no longer on air – from 2008 to 2020.

Holly’s television producer husband Dan Baldwin worked on the show and encouraged Keith to call Holly, ‘Holly Willoughbooby’.

Keith has previously said: ‘When I do Juice there’s often someone in my ear going, “Say this”.

‘Normally it’s Holly’s husband saying, “Say this bad thing to my wife”, and I’m like, “No way! I’m not saying that!”‘

Holly was confirmed as host of Bear Hunt earlier this month.

The ‘Dancing On Ice’ presenter will front the celebrity competition show for Netflix, which will see famous faces face off against survival expert Bear Grylls in various challenges in the South American jungle and will hit the streaming service next year.

Netflix announced on Instagram: ‘Introducing Bear Hunt – this new action-packed competition show sees a group of unlikely British celebrities dropped into the Central American jungle as prey for one of the world’s most fearsome predators… @beargrylls! Hosted by @hollywilloughby – coming to Netflix in 2025.’

Holly then shared the post on her Instagram Story with the caption: ‘Breaking News.’

A source told The Sun newspaper the show was a ‘significant challenge’ for Holly as it will mark her first show away from terrestrial television.

The 43-year-old star was first mooted as host of the show in January.

A source said at the time: ‘Bear is working with a production company for Netflix. They want Holly to host.

‘A group of celebrities will be put into a jungle where they will have to tackle a series of challenges.’

In the series, contestants are expected to be pitted against Bear.

The source added: ‘If they lose, they’ll have to pit their wits against Bear, who will be hunting them down.

‘It’s a really exciting concept and Bear is totally on board. Now they have Holly in their sights to host it.

‘She is very glamorous and an accomplished host.

‘Holly is open to offers. She won’t be rushing into anything and will be carefully cherry-picking her next projects.’

It won’t be Holly’s first time presenting in the jungle, after she co-hosted one series of ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ in 2018 alongside Declan Donnelly, temporarily taking the place of Dec’s regular co-presenter Ant McPartlin.
