Scarlett Moffatt has been asked by bosses to host 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' spin-off show 'Extra Camp' alongside Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon later this year

Scarlett Moffatt will present 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' spin-off show 'Extra Camp'.

The 26-year-old reality TV star - who was crowned queen of the jungle on the creepy-crawly programme last year after winning over the hearts of the nation - will reportedly head Down Under later this year to host the side series alongside real-life couple Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "This is a huge gig for Scarlett and one she's worked hard to get. Last year's show was just a bit too chaotic for producers, so they wanted to switch things up.

"The current plan is to have Scarlett host the show alongside two other presenters. At the moment that is most likely to see Stacey return with her boyfriend Joe as they were happy with them last time round. It's a massive test for Scarlett but ITV were chuffed with her in the jungle and the job she did on 'Ant And Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' so think she's well worth the punt."

The brunette beauty - who had viewers in hysterics with her one-liners - will replace Vicky Pattison and Chris Ramsey after they were ditched from the spin-off following a number of gaffes last year.

An insider said recently: "Bosses love the 'Extra Camp' format and think it's a great part of the whole 'I'm A Celebrity...' package, but they felt it could do with a shake-up.

"Obviously Ant and Dec are always going to be the hosts of the main show, but producers have tended to tinker around with 'Extra Camp', changing hosts, tweaking the format and even changing the name. Unfortunately Chris is going to be one of those to face the axe, along with Vicky, but bosses very much enjoyed working with him."

Meanwhile, although bosses are almost certain they've got their line up of presenters ready for the spin-off, they're now hoping that Ant McPartlin - who went into rehab for treatment for painkiller addiction earlier this year - will be ready to host the main series alongside Declan Donnelly.
