Joe Swash thinks he and his girlfriend Stacey Solomon will be like Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford when they present 'I'm A Celebrity... Extra Camp' as a couple
Joe Swash says he and his girlfriend Stacey Solomon are going to be like the new "Eamonn and Ruth" on 'I'm A Celebrity... Extra Camp'.
The pair - who have been together for almost a year - are going to make their joint presenting debut as a couple on the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' spin-off show and will be joined on the ITV2 programme by Vicky Pattison and Chris Ramsey.
Joe cannot wait to work with the love of his life Stacey - both of whom are former 'I'm A Celebrity...' winners - and is predicting their style as co-hosts will be similar to 'This Morning' husband and wife team Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, who regularly appears with Stacey on 'Loose Women'.
In an interview with The Huffington Post UK, former 'X Factor' star Stacey said: "I think we're going to have a right laugh. First and foremost we're friends, and we've worked together before as friends and loved it, so I don't think we see it as any different to that really. We just get to go home together and act like Richard and Judy."
Joe, 34, then interjected: "I think we're more Ruth and Eamonn!"
When asked if they would bicker just like Eamonn and Ruth do on 'This Morning', the former 'EastEnders' actor replied: "I think we'll have our moments."
Stacey, 27, then joked: "Joe's hard work, do you know what I mean?"
Fellow Queen of the Jungle Vicky - who came first on 'I'm A Celebrity...' in 2015 - agrees with Joe's comparison to Eamonn and Ruth.
The former 'Geordie Shore' star - who appears as a team captain on Eamonn's Channel 5 panel show 'It's Not Me, It's You' - said: "Stacey is more like Eamonn, she's got the cheeky banter, while Joe takes it like Ruth does."
