Laura Whitmore is keen to reprise her role of host on spin-off show 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! NOW' when the next season begins later this year

Laura Whitmore wants to return to 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! NOW!'.

The blonde beauty has presented the ITV2 spin-off show for the last two seasons and she is keen to reprise her role when it returns later this year, hinting things are "looking good".

She told The Sun newspaper: "I miss Australia - the last series of 'I'm A Celebrity' was brilliant. I definitely want to go back this year and things are looking good at the moment.

"I saw Ant and Dec and the producers recently, and we were all reminiscing. Because you see the same people all the time out there it becomes like a family."

Laura - who took over as host from Caroline Flack in 2011 - also would love to see retired football star Paul Gascoigne, also known as Gazza, appear in the Australian jungle.

She said: "I've heard a few times that Gazza could be on the show so maybe he will. That will definitely get column inches, as I'm sure he'll be pretty controversial. I don't know how nice he'll be or how good at challenges, but I'd like to see him in there."

However, the TV personality insists she won't be taking over Olly Murs' hot spot on 'The Xtra Factor' alongside Caroline after he departs to focus on his music.

She added: "I get asked about 'X Factor' quite a lot, but I just want to get back to Australia at the moment - I don't think I'm ready to give that up just yet.

"I saw Olly this week and I told him I'll be sad to see him leave, but he feels his music is doing so well that he can't [stay]. As far as I know Caroline is doing it again, which is good because she's brilliant at it."
