Scarlett Moffatt has just announced some exciting news

Former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has an actual role in the royal wedding taking place later this month.

She went from Gogglebox to queen of the jungle on I'm A Celebrity but now the 27-year-old star will be covering Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day for the BBC Radio 1.

The reality star will be the royal correspondent for the show and every hour will be reporting into the daytime show from Windsor Castle.

Meghan Markle's bridesmaids - Closer (slider)

Serena Williams1 of 11

Serena Williams

Someone with an outside shot at being Meghan's bridesmaid is tennis ace Serena Williams. Meghan and the Wimbledon-champion have been friends since 2014 when they met at a charity football game. Despite their reported closeness, Meghan didn't attend Serena's own nuptials earlier this year, so it might be that she doesn't have a role at the royal wedding.

Janina Gavankar2 of 11

Janina Gavankar

Fellow actress Janina Gavankar has known Meghan for 15 years, with the Suits star recently gushing about their friendship in an Instagram post that read: 'Couldn't be prouder of how far we've come, and couldn't be more grateful for being able to share every step of it with you.' As a long-term pal and as someone in the same industry as her, she's got a good chance of being in the bridal party.

Princess Charlotte

As the niece of Prince Harry, it would be a pretty adorable touch if Princess Charlotte was included in the bridal party. After all, she was part of her aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding earlier this year to James Middleton, so it's not like she hasn't had any practice.

Jessica Mulroney4 of 11

As well as being her unofficial stylist, Jessica Mulroney is also one of Meghan's closest friends, after the two met when the actress relocated to Toronto to begin filming Suits. She is heavily present on Meghan's Instagram account, as is her daughter, Ivy, so we think it's highly likely that she'll have a role.

Lindsay Roth5 of 11

Lindsay Roth

The front-runner for maid of honour is almost certainly Lindsay Roth, who chose Meghan for the same role at her own wedding last August. The Suits actress and producer and author have been friends for 15 years, with Lindsay recently telling People magazine that Meghan is 'the same girl I met years ago'. The two met at a Toni Morrison literature class during their first year of college at Northwestern University.

Priyanka Chopra6 of 11

Another actress that Meghan is good friends with is Priyanka Chopra, who she met at a dinner celebrating women in Hollywood a few years ago. After Vanity Fair ran their cover story with Meghan pegged to her relationship with Prince Harry, Priyanka defended her friend, saying she was more than just 'Harry's girlfriend'.

As Meghan is marrying into the royal family could Kate Middleton be one of her bridesmaids?We don't know much about how close the women are but they're soon to be family so we reckon they're fairly friendly. PLUS it's going to be a royal wedding so we're pretty sure Kate (who we're guessing will be heavily pregnant) will have a role in the big day.

If you're a fan/watched Suits then you'll remember Harvey's ex-girlfriend Scottie (who is played by Abigail). She may have left Suits a few seasons ago but it turns out Meghan and Abigail are pals outside of the TV series. Could we see a Suits reunion on the big day?
