But bosses decided the ITV2 companion, previously calledI’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! NOW !, had become too expensive.

It was shown at

pm – just outside the channel’s prime time schedule, which is about to get a big push.

An ITV source said: “ITV have been discussing the future of Extra Camp for some time and it’s not a decision they’ve taken lightly as they are very fond of it.

“But bosses are focusing on growing ITV2’s prime-time offering on the channel and Extra Camp, sadly, isn’t a part of that.

“The show is quite expensive to make and, in the current climate, they’ve had to make a tough commercial decision.”

Joel confirmed The Sun’s story this evening and said in a statement on Instagram: “The time has unfortunately come to put Extra Camp to bed in its uncomfortable hammock.

“The show will no longer continue. It’s been a huge privilege to be a part a show with such a rich history filled with amazing hosts. The producers have assured me that @emilyatackofficial @adamthomas 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 was not listening but it was something like that) – 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.”

Since the ninth series in Extra Camp has Mostly been filmed live in Australia, with only the occasional celebrity interviews shown from London.

The show has had 17 presenters since it first aired.
