'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Extra Camp' host Scarlett Moffatt can't stop pestering Dec Donnelly with text messages ahead of the trip to the jungle
Scarlett Moffatt is so excited about the next series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' that she can't stop texting the programme's host Declan Donnelly.
The former 'Gogglebox' star won last year's series of the reality show - which sees famous faces fending for themselves and battling against each other to become king or queen of the Australian jungle - and is joining spin-off show 'Extra Camp' as co-host along with Joel Dommett and Joe Swash.
Scarlett said: "I'm so excited. I've been messaging Dec just talking about packing and asking if he's packed. My mam keeps laughing because I've been packed for three weeks now. I'm so keen."
The 27-year-old beauty says previous hosts Caroline Flack and Laura Whitmore have given her a lot of advice ahead of her time in the hot seat.
She added to The Sun newspaper: "Caroline and Laura have been amazing, giving me lots of tips and they have been so supportive.
"They told me to get a lot of sleep now because the ITV2 show is filmed in English time so I need to try and organise my sleeping patterns.
"I think I'll be running on adrenaline though, excitement has overtaken nerves for me."
Scarlett recently revealed she has had her suitcase packed for Australia the second she found out she had landed the gig.
She said: "I'm really excited. I've been packed for three weeks! But I won't lie and say I'm not nervous about it all. I'm really hoping that a girl will win this year. There needs to be another queen of the jungle."
Details of the new series are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being but it's believed Ant McPartlin - who sought treatment in rehab earlier this year for drug addiction - will be ready to present the programme alongside his best friend Dec Donnelly.
Scarlett said: "He's fine. We've spoken and I was texting Dec the other day. I think it's really amazing that Ant's spoken about it. The more people that speak about mental health, the better, because then the stigma around it will disappear."
