Inside Holly Willoughby's leaving dinner with famous pals before jetting off to film Bear Grylls show

Holly Willoughby enjoyed a lavish farewell meal at London hotspot, Ixchel, before jetting off to Costa Rica to film a new Netflix show.

The 43 year old TV presenter is set to present the Netflix show in which adventurer Bear Grylls hunts down celebrities in the jungle.

But before her long-haul flight ahead of filming, Dancing on Ice host Holly dined with her celebrity friends, including Christine Lampard and Nicole Appleton, at the popular Mexican restaurant located on King's Road in Chelsea, London.

The restaurant, owned by Fraser Carruthers, is a favourite among celebrities including Princess Beatrice, Poppy Delevingne, Lisa Snowdon, Jaime Winstone and Gizzi Erskine.

Holly and her friends dined on the Full Moon menu in a private room inside the restaurant. They also enjoyed a trio of cocktails named Holly's Paloma, Bear's Punch and The Aztec Marg, paying tribute to Holly's lifestyle brand, Wylde Moon.

The guests were treated to guacamole, pico de gallo and totopos, followed by a selection of hand-dived scallop aguachile, pork belly tacos, short rib, and a delicious Tres Leches cake for dessert.

Holly's star-studded night out comes ahead of her newest TV role, which will see her team up with survival expert Bear Grylls. The show, which is billed as being similar to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is set to launch on Netflix, and will see a group of British celebs being dropped into the jungle to face survival expert Bear Grylls.

The working title of the show is 'Bear Hunt' and will see the former This Morning host journey into the jungles of Central America. It is being produced by Bear's own company, The Natural Studios, and two co-producers.

The show will see Bear test the celebrity's survival skills and those who don't impress will have to endure the "bear hunt" where he will hunt them down. If they're caught, they're out of the game. It's yet to be announced which celebrities will be taking part.

This will mark Holly's first new show since her departure from This Morning last year. After a brief hiatus from TV, Holly returned to host Dancing on Ice alongside Stephen Mulhern, who had replaced her former co-star Phillip Schofield. It will also be her first foray out of mainstream TV and onto a streaming service.
