Holly Willoughby calls the new Celeb Juice captains ‘fit’ after Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore replace her

HOLLY Willoughby has officially passed on the Celebrity Juice baton to her replacements Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore.

Holly, 39, took to Instagram on Saturday to give her blessing to The Inbetweeners actress and TV presenter Laura.

Sharing a screenshot of Keith Lemon's Instagram Story, which showed him filming with Emily and Laura, Holly made her feelings known about the two blondes.

"Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit! @celebjuiceofficial ❤️🍋," she captioned the snap.

In the picture, Emily and Laura can be seen wearing wellington boots and checked outfits as they pose with their hands on the hips either side of 47-year-old Keith, who fronts the game show.

Keith was quick to comment on the post and wrote: "Love you xxx," while Kelly Brook added: Hahahah!!! So fun!"

Meanwhile, 30-year-old Emily took to her own Instagram profile to share some behind the scenes shots of filming.

The first was a selfie taken by Keith as he and the ladies stood in a field - with Emily and Laura wearing dungarees and wellies again.

Emily captioned it: "I’m covered in manure and passata sauce. First day as team captain on Celeb Juice!!!🍋."

A second snap showed her and Laura in the same outfits sat on a sofa next to one another.

Emily wrote alongside it: "Hello from us on the farm, your new team captains at Celeb Juice, and my my unfortunate green leather fanny. At least it’s smiling at you all. Have a splendid weekend✨."

Laura commented on the picture: "The green leather fanny was the least of your worries in this outfit about an hour later 😂."

And Keith added: "I found porridge right on my end," so it's unclear exactly what they got up to on their first day of filming.

However, judging by the posts on Keith's Instagram page it involves some dangerous activities and Laura showing off her recorder playing skills.

It was announced earlier this month that Laura and Emily would be taking on the roles as Celeb Juice team captains - following Holly's departure.

The mum-of-three announced in May that she was quitting the ITV2 show after 12 years.

Her decision followed good pal Fearne Cotton's departure from Celeb Juice in 2018.

Taking to Instagram, Holly posted a montage of photos alongside a touching tribute to over a decade as team captain on the comedy game show, describing it as "fantastic chaos".

"Thank you @celebjuiceofficial for 12 years of fantastic chaos… I can't quite believe what we've done and how quick that time has gone," she wrote.

Holly went on to thank viewers for watching, saying the show has "always had the loudest and best audiences", whilst also extending her gratitude to the production team for all their "ingenious ideas and hard work".

And the This Morning host clearly approves of the show's new captains judging by her latest Instagram post.

Keith Lemon says he was ‘shocked’ by Holly Willoughby quitting Celebrity Juice - and doesn't know who'll replace her
