Celebrity Juice gets a boost as Kelly Brook takes over as team captain for Fearne
25th January 2013
Celebrity Juice will be bouncing back onto our screens this February but with a bang new difference – no Fearne!
Fearne will be off having a baby for the whole of series nine, leaving the juicers a celebrity down… until now! Kelly Brook has bravely stepped up to the plate and will be keeping Fearne’s seat warm until her return for series ten.
In the meantime, there’ll still be plenty of SHIITTIINNGGG-ING in Fearne’s absence as Holly and Kelly will go head to head in a celebrity news face off, presided over by your host with the most, Keith Lemon.
Keith said of the change: “I really didn’t think we could replace Fearne Cotton but now we’ve got Kelly Brook I hope Fearne don’t come back. Only joking – hope you have a smooth delivery Fearne – miss you. The two main reasons we’ve chosen Kelly Brook are obvious - her bangers. Just hope Holly don’t get jealous.”
Kelly added: "Celebrity Juice is my favourite show! I'm really excited to be working alongside my friends Keith and Holly, and will have a lot of fun keeping Fearne’s seat warm until she returns."
But what do best-bezza’s Holly and Fearne think of it all?
“I’m really pleased that Kelly is going to be the new team captain on Celebrity Juice,” Holly confirmed. “She’s been on the show before – we had a right laugh filming that episode and I know I’m going to enjoy working with her. However, I also realise Keith is going to try and make us kiss in every episode….”
Last and not least, Fearne gave her blessing to her official seat-warmer for the series: “I’m obviously gutted to be missing out on the new series of Celebrity Juice and will miss everyone a lot but am so happy Kelly will be joining the team until I’m back. She is used to Keith’s ways, can hold her own and has ample assets to keep my seat warm till I’m back in September!”
