The 35-year-old TV presenter and Emily, 30, have joined the show as new team captains, and Keith thinks they'll help to create a "new vibe" on set.

He shared: "I think Whitmore and Atack are just going to breathe new life into it, like what I think Gino [D’Acampo] did that when he joined. Then he got super busy and then you get new people and it turns into a different vibe!"

Keith has relished working with the pair on the new series, saying it's been like "hanging out with [his] mates".

He explained: "I think we’ve worked out that we’ve known each other for 10 years. I’ve worked with Emily a few times and we just keep bringing in old pictures, going, ‘You remember this.’

"I worked with Whitmore professionally. So we’ve all worked together, but more importantly, we socialise together."

Although Keith insisted the new team captains aren't competitive with each other, he's convinced Emily could drink him under the table.

He told "They’re not competitive. They’re quite happy for each other to win. But I mean with Emily, I’ve met my match with a drinking partner. She might as well just have a drip filled with wine. She’s like a fish!

"Whitmore is a bit more professional in that sense, so she has a drink, but Emily just goes, 'I’m out, I’m out! I’m coming out. Are we having a drink? I am!'"

'Celebrity Juice' first aired back in 2008, when Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton were the two team captains.

And although they subsequently left the show, Keith would love for them to return as guests.

He said: "I’m sure they’ll be able to return as guests. That was the first thing Holly said. Holly just wanted to spend more time with her family because she’s super busy and she said she’d come on as a guest, though.

"She said it feels like she’s splitting up with her boyfriend. They both did!"
