Joe Swash was worried he would lose his 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here, NOW!' presenting job when Caroline Flack quit the show.
The 29-year-old TV host - who has fronted the ITV2 spin-off series alongside Russell Kane and the brunette beauty for the past two years - admitted when Caroline announced she would be leaving to present 'The Xtra Factor' he was concerned show bosses would use the opportunity to "shake up" the format.
Joe exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's absolutely the best job in the world and when Caroline said she was going I was a bit worried about what they'd do with me, we come as a pair.
"I thought they might use the opportunity to shake up the format and get someone new on there. I'm just over the moon that I'm still on it."
Joe - who is also presenting new ITV2 game show 'Minute To Win It' alongside Caroline - explained if another guy joins him and Russell on 'I'm A Celebrity...' it will become a "c**k fest", and he'll be disappointed because he won't have anyone to flirt with.
He added: "They might well get a guy, but if they do it's going to become a total c**k-fest. I think they just don't want people to compare whoever it ends up being to Caroline.
"If they do go with a boy it will be a shame because I'm not going to have anyone to flirt with for a month.
"But they don't trust me with anything, so I have no idea who's going to be co-presenting. I only find out about the contestants from what my mum reads in the papers! I can't be trusted with any important information because I get drunk and tell everyone."
'Minute To Win It', presented by Cadbury Spots v Stripes, is on Tuesdays at 8pm on ITV2.
