Scarlett Moffatt is desperate to join the 'Strictly Come Dancing' judging panel alongside Bruno Tonioli, Darcy Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Shirley Ballas
Scarlett Moffatt wants to judge 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former 'Gogglebox' star trained as a ballroom dancer from the age of just six and she'd love to have some involvement in the glitzy celebrity contest, either replacing Tess Daly or Claudia Winkleman as presenter, or stepping in for Bruno Tonioli, Darcy Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood or Shirley Ballas.
Asked if she'd do 'Strictly', she told OK! magazine: "Definitely. With 18 years of ballroom and Latin up my sleeve, I'd love to drive back into all that glitter.
"In my dreams, I'd love to be a judge or presenter but I'd happily pull the rope that lifts the curtain up at the Blackpool Tower ballroom."
The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' winner has other ambitions she'd like to fulfil but admits it's hard to top landing a presenting role alongside Ant and Dec on their show 'Saturday Night Takeaway'.
She said: "I'd love to write a children's book, but I'm living the dream now.
"I never dreamt I'd work in telly and now I'm working with Ant and Dec, who are legends."
Scarlett, 27, won 'I'm A Celebrity...' almost a year ago and is still in touch with many of her campmates.
She revealed: "We've got a WhatsApp group. Carol Vorderman texted me this morning to say she's spotted an advert for this year's 'I'm A Celebrity...'
"It'll be exciting handing the crown over to someone else."
Despite her happiness with her career, Scarlett has found herself in the firing line over the way she looks.
She said: "You can't win. I got trolled for being overweight and now for being too skinny.
"I don't agree with body shaming, whether you're little or large."
