Gail Porter has pulled out of 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The Scottish TV presenter decided to quit the jungle reality show at the last minute, and is now being replaced by a Playboy bunny.
Gail - who is a former glamour model herself - is said to have been replaced by US-born busty blonde Kayla Collins, who goes by the name of Dollface.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Gail was all set to go. Then she said 'no'. Often people pull out when they realise exactly how tough it's going to be."
The TV personality was one of 10 celebrities set to enter the Australian jungle camp this week before the tenth series of the ITV1 show starts on Sunday night(14.11.10).
Her agent Janie Brent confirmed her denial to the Metro newspaper, and said the busy star - who is mum to eight-year-old Honey - doesn't have time to go on every show she is offered.
She said: "Gail has been inundated with requests to appear in lots of programmes but sadly she just hasn't got the time to take part in them all.
"She loves the show and will be watching with her boyfriend Johnny and daughter Honey."
The show - in which contestants sleep rough and take part in gruesome challenges - could have been tough on Gail, who in recent years has overcome post-natal depression and has battled alopecia.
