Eamonn Holmes threw shade at Giovanna Fletcher as he claimed he's "never heard of her".

The 60 year old was discussing the rumoured line-up for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! with his wife Ruth Langsford on Friday's This Morning when he made the dig.

Giovanna, 35, is just one of the names expected to be headed to Wales to take part in the new series of the hit ITV show when it begins later this month.

But Irish presenter Eamonn seemed to be disappointed with the signing as he read her name from the potential list.

He said: "The line up seems to be complete for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, amongst the names Sir Mo Farah is in there.

"Shane Richie the comedian in there, AJ Pritchard the dancer from Strictly, Russell Watson."

Moving on to the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast host, he continued: "The favourite is someone called, never heard of her, Giovanna Fletcher," before turning to wife Ruth, also 60, and asking: "Who's she?"

Ruth explained: "Yes! She does an amazing podcast and writes book," with Eamonn once again replying: "Never heard of her."

Giovanna is believed to be the last celebrity to sign up for the show, with her inclusion on the line-up only being reported this week.

A source said: "Giovanna is a brilliant signing. She's incredibly popular on Instagram with mums and has over 1.3million followers.

"She's moved in famous circles for years. Not only is she best pals with Emma Willis but she's close to royalty, married to a boyband star and her brother is Mario Falcone from TOWIE. She's decided the time is right to embrace the limelight."

She will be heading to Wales to battle it out in the elements with other stars including presenter Vernon Kay, journalist Victoria Derbyshire and EastEnders star Jessica Plummer.
