It's official the Moffatt family have left Gogglebox

We're pretty sure every Gogglebox viewer was devastated when Channel 4 revealed the Moffatt family will not be returning to the show. A spokesperson for the show confirmed the news, saying: "The Moffatt family will not be appearing in this series."

Scarlett has now broken her silence following the announcement and admitted she thought her family would continue filming for the show without her.

Posting a photo of Instagram of herself with her parents at the National Television Awards she wrote: "We are going to miss doing #Gogglebox so so much but can't wait to watch the new series (good luck my fellow Goggleboxers you will smash it love the Moffatts)"

After a fan tweeted Scarlett explaining that they're sad about the decision, Scarlett replied and said: "We are gutted too, thought my Mam and dad (and little Ava) would still be doing it but we will still be watching #Gogglebox"

According to an insider the reason the family are not returning to the show that put them in the spotlight is because of Scarlett's fame. They admitted: "Scarlett is now a celebrity in her own right so it made sense she wouldn't continue.

"She and her parents came as a package. It wouldn't work so well without all three of them," they told The Sunday People.

Scarlett's mum and dad didn't appear on the last series because they were supporting Scarlett during her stint in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Since becoming the Queen of the Jungle Scarlett has gone on to host the NTAs, feature on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and she's got TWO new deals with Channel 4.

It looks like Scarlett has a big year ahead of her.
