Adam Thomas calls I’m A Celebrity’s Extra Camp axing ‘awkward’ after his one series stint on show

Former Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas hosted the last series of Extra Camp with Emily Atack, 30, and Joel Dommett, 34, but it has now been confirmed that the show will not be returning.

The 31 year old took to Instagram to say that it was “awkward” that the show has been axed after he presented it for just one series, and joke that he is now available for roles in panto.

Sharing a picture of himself on set with Emily and Joel, Adam wrote: “Ok so this isn’t awkward … imagine your first ever presenting role on a show that’s been running for years… you do one show and it gets cancelled!!

Joel Dommett, who has hosted the show since 2017, broke the news of the show’s axing on his Instagram page.

He wrote to his 717,000 followers: "Sad news – The time has unfortunately come to put Extra Camp to bed in its uncomfortable hammock.

"The producers have assured me that @emilyatackofficial @adamthomas21 and myself are not to blame – they said the show was better than ever and also that Joel is the sexiest presenter we have ever had (I wasn’t listening but it was something like that),"

He continued: "It is simply because it’s expensive given how late it’s on and the funds will be used in more prime time slots.

"I’ve told them that Adam will do it for free but the decision is made. Thank you to all the crew who have made this the most wonderful 3 years, you have shaped me as a person and presenter. I’ve learnt so much. Thank you to everyone for watching."
