Scarlett Moffatt has been confirmed for this year's 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here'
Scarlett Moffatt has signed up for 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here'.
The 25-year-old reality star first made a name for herself on 'Gogglebox' but she is set to swap her parent's sofa for the Australian jungle as she signs up for the ITV reality television show.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Scarlett has gone down really well on 'Gogglebox' and 'I'm A Celeb' producers think she's a perfect fit for them. Her hilarious one-liners and frank views make great telly for Channel 4 so they want a bit of the action.
"They think she can be a better version of Vicky Pattison, who unexpectedly won last year's show. Also it's win-win as she'll look great in a bikini so will give them the much sought-after waterfall shot they want every year. And Scarlett can promote her DVD."
The news of Scarlett's decision to join the jungle comes after she previously stated she wouldn't do 'Strictly Come Dancing' because she didn't want to give up 'Gogglebox'. She claimed she was worried she would lose her spot on the show if she went to a rival broadcaster and said that if she "had" to do a reality show, she would choose 'I'm A Celeb'.
She shared: "I was asked to do 'Strictly Come Dancing' which was pretty cool but I love 'Gogglebox' too much. It's the best and easiest job in the world to sit and watch telly. I would have had to choose between the two and it was a no brainer for me.
"I couldn't take the risk. Knowing my luck, I would never be allowed to rejoin. I wouldn't leave 'Gogglebox' for any show but if I could do one and stay on it, I would choose the jungle. I think it would be really cool to do the challenges and face your fears."
