Declan Donnelly will not present I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! alone when it returns later this year.
A new co-host has been chosen to replace Ant McPartlin, ITV's director of television Kevin Lygo told the Edinburgh TV Festival, but he declined to reveal who it would be.
Donnelly's long-time presenting partner will be taking the rest of the year off after stepping back from TV commitments and public appearances following a drink-driving conviction which saw him banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000.
The duo have presented the programme in the Australian jungle together since it began in 2002.
Lygo joked: "It's going to be Piers Morgan. No, I don't know, it could be Jeremy Corbyn. I can't say."
Lygo reckoned Ant and Dec's favourite show is Saturday Night Takeaway: "They're so proud of it and they want it to be perfect and bigger and better."
The duo's programme Saturday Night Takeaway will not air next year while McPartlin takes his break.
