EMILY Atack and Laura Whitmore have been revealed as the new Celebrity Juice captains.

The Inbetweeners actress celebrated landing her "dream job" as she posed alongside pal Keith Lemon and Love Island host Laura.

Emily, 30, wrote on Instagram: "IT’S HAPPENING KIDS!!! New Celeb Juice coming soon. Cannot believe I’m team captain along side my wonderful pal @thewhitmore .. DREAM JOB OR WHAT EH!? Bring on the lols."

She added: “Every time I’ve been on Juice in the past I’ve had such a good time, and now I’m doing it with two of my best mates and I’m a ruddy team captain!!! Can’t believe it.

"I dread to think what we're going to be faced with, but Whitmore should know that I won’t be backing down and she is going to have some tough competition. But more importantly a wonderfully hilarious time.

"Bring it on!”

Laura added: “I’m so thrilled to be part of the Celeb Juice Family. I’ve been the biggest fan for years, I used to go and sit in the audience when I first moved to London and can’t believe I’m a team captain now!

"I can’t wait to see what Keith has got lined up for Emily and I this series… From past experiences, nothing would surprise me. I cannot wait to get stuck in and lead my team to victory each week… I love you Emily, but watch out! I’m so excited to start!”

Host Keith Lemon added: “Can’t wait to start new celeb juice with old friends. Exciting times ahead! The funnest job ever!”

Celebrity Juice is returning to the telebox this autumn with a new line-up after Holly Willoughby quit this summer.

The TV presenter, 39, stepped down after 12 years to spend more time with her three children and producer husband Dan Baldwin, 45.

Holly’s decision to quit Celebrity Juice comes after pal and fellow panellist Fearne Cotton, 38, left the series in 2018 to focus on new projects.

Paul Mortimer, ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions added: “The chemistry between Keith, Laura and Emily is sure to continue the infectious sense of fun and mayhem that ‘Juice’ fans love.

"I know the team have more crazy ideas planned for the new series and I can’t wait for ITV2’s viewers to enjoy them.”
