Paddy has now joined the show as the new team captain

Chatting about how she'd like the Radio 1 presenter to be on her team if she ever came back to the show, Holly said: "Yes, definitely! We've never been on the same team before so I hope if she does come on as a guest she'll be on my team. That would be amazing, so much fun! We can totally gang up on Keith, I'd love that!" The mum-of-three also revealed how Fearne broke the news that she was leaving the show to her, explaining: "She called me. It was a funny one because I was definitely surprised, I didn't expect it. Celebrity Juice is one of those shows we started doing what feels like a million years ago. You think it’s going to go on forever and always be there. I knew something was up because she called me and she never calls me!"

Fearne previously opened up about leaving the show on Lorraine,explaining: "I think you need to have change and have a shake-up in life every now and again and take risks and feel a bit scared again. It was the same when I left Radio 1 – I left on a bit of a high and wanted to try something new and have a new adventure. It's very much with that sort of feeling attached to it."
