I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! spin off The Daily Drop has been axed after just one year.

The programme – which was hosted by Vick Hope – was unveiled last year as the series was filmed in Wales for the first time.

However, ITV has confirmed that it will not be back when the reality show kicks off next month.

An I’m A Celebrity spokesperson told Yahoo: "The Daily Drop won't be returning this year but we'd like to thank Vick Hope and everyone involved in the show last year for bringing fans of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! all the latest news and gossip.”

The Daily Drop had seen presenter Hope dishing the camp gossip from a virtual studio and aired on the ITV Hub.

It was brought in to replace Extra Camp, which had been I'm A Celebrity's companion series from 2002 until 2019.

So far there is no word on whether there will be a replacement for Hope’s programme.

The main show returns in November with Ant and Dec back as hosts.

Speculation is rife about who the celebrity campers will be, with Richard Madeley thought to be among this year’s line-up.
