Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton to join last Celebrity Juice episode
Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton will be among the celebrities joining the last episode of Celebrity Juice.
The pair, who were the team captains when the comedy panel show began in 2008, will be helping to say goodbye to the programme after 14 years, along with Johnny Vegas, Joey Essex, Big Narstie, Chris Ramsey and Will Mellor.
Media personality Laura Whitmore and Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack later took over the captains’ roles from ITV This Morning’s Willoughby and BBC Radio 2’s Cotton.
The show’s presenter, Keith Lemon, will also be joined by regular panellist Maya Jama.
Lemon, real name Leigh Francis, said: “I’ve already said this, but it’s been the best party ever.
“But, as always, there comes a point when the party has to end. It’s been the most ace times and we’re gonna go out with a bang… tidy!”
He wrote on Instagram that the show had seen 308 episodes over 26 series, with the last two episodes filmed on Monday.
The final episode will see a host of familiar faces return to play some of the show’s most popular games, with a few additional surprises for viewers.
The Celebrity Juice one-hour special will air on ITV2 on Thursday December 8 at 10pm.
A 60-minute compilation show called Celebrity Juice: The Last Hurrah, which will look back through some of the greatest moments from the last 14 years with contributions from celebrities, will air a week later, on Thursday December 15, also at 10pm.
