Scarlett Moffatt opens up about featuring on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway

Scarlett Moffatt has gone from strength to strength following her first Gogglebox appearance. She has had a dramatic weight transformation, she won I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and now she's presenting alongside Ant and Dec on their Saturday Night Takeaway show.

The Gogglebox star has replaced Pussycat Dolls member Ashley Roberts who was on the Saturday night show for four years. Although she isn't bitter about being replaced, she admitted: "I don't really know Scarlett. I didn't watch the Jungle and I haven’t really seen her so I don't really know her personally.

"But I'm sure the boys are going to have fun with her, and she'll have such a fun time," she told BANG Showbiz.

And now Scarlett has opened up about joining Ant and Dec on their National Television Award winning show. She explained: "It’s like a dream come true – working with Ant and Dec is unbelievable. They are my absolute heroes.

"Being part of the ITV family is amazing. Some of my favourite memories are being at home belly laughing with the family watching Saturday Night Takeaway. Knowing I’m part of that is overwhelming."

The 26-year-old admitted she's nervous about doing the live TV show but "the excitement is overpowering the nerves."

She added: "I just want to enjoy every minute of it. If I go wrong, hopefully me and the audience can all laugh along together."

Scarlett Moffatt admits she's still shocked she won I'm A Celebrity

Scarlett who found fame from the Channel 4 show Gogglebox and won the nation over with her quick wit and hilarious quotes confessed she's still shocked she won I'm A Celeb: "I’m so pleased that happened – the jungle gave me a new found confidence that I didn’t have before.

"I think it makes doing this show that little bit easier. I don’t know how I’d have coped going straight into this if I hadn’t done jungle. "

The Geordie lass has revealed that even though she's very busy all the time if she wasn't presenting on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway she'd still be watching it at home. She revealed: "Me, my mum, dad and my sister would get a takeaway. Then maybe afterwards I’d meet my friends in the local.

"I’m not really a massive going out person. I probably sound really boring! That’s why I love Takeaway though – because it’s cold outside and you’ve still got Christmas blues it cheers everyone up."

You'll never guess what Scarlett Moffatt's favourite takeaway meal is...

You've probably already guessed it, after all she did scream it out one time during a Bushtucker trial. But the Gogglebox star admitted she loves Chicken kebab with loads of garlic sauce on a Saturday night.

Although she added: But northern garlic sauce because garlic sauce down south is different. I’ll have to bring some with me when I come down because it’s just not the same!"

Scarlett has confessed that although she's had a great year in 2016 she has big plans for this year: "By the end of 2017 I want to be known as Scarlett Moffatt, TV presenter. That would be the next step for me, to be seen as a presenter."

We can't wait to see her on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.
