This Coronation Street legend is set to replace Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice

Could Catherine Tyldesley be teaming up with Keith Lemon?

Holly Willoughby left Celebrity Juice fans gutted recently when it was confirmed she was leaving her role as team captain on the hilarious ITV panel show.

This Morning presenter Holly joined her long-time co-star Keith Lemon for her final appearance on the show via video link last week as the Celebrity Juice team continued to air the programme in lockdown.

Now, it has been reported that former Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley is set to fill Holly’s shoes.

A source revealed that Catherine, who played Eva Price on the cobbles, is keen to take on the coveted showbiz job.

The insider told The Sun, “Cath is brilliant fun, naturally very sharp and witty, and already has chemistry with Keith as they’re pals.

“She’s also got a girl next door appeal, much like Holly.

“Producers have got a short list of around eight stars, and Cath is very much up. For her part, she has told pals she would be up for it.”
