Scarlett Moffatt lands dream job on Saturday Night Takeaway

Scarlett Moffatt will also have a "prominent role" on the National Television Awards when it takes place later this month (Jan17).

Scarlett Moffatt has been snapped up for ITV show Saturday Night Takeaway after her victory on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

The Gogglebox star won over viewers with her appearance on the ITV reality show last year (16), beating Adam Thomas and Joel Dommett to the jungle crown.

Now she has been enlisted by I'm A Celebrity hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly for a presenting role on their hit show Saturday Night Takeaway.

According to The Sun newspaper, Scarlett will replace former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts as host of the Ant vs Dec segment on the programme.

Scarlett told the publication of her new gig: "I’ve watched Saturday Night Takeaway with my family for as long as I can remember I’m such a huge fan, so to be part of one of the biggest entertainment shows out there, with two of my all time TV heroes Ant and Dec, is an absolute dream.

"I am so excited. I didn’t think 2016 could be topped but I really can’t wait for my Saturday nights now."

The Takeaway job isn't the only exciting prospect Scarlett has for the coming months. She has also been signed in a "prominent role" at the National TV Awards on 25 January (17), alongside the ceremony's host Dermot O'Leary.

"I’ve never been to an awards ceremony before," she smiled. "I can’t believe the first one I’m attending is as part of the actual NTA team working alongside Dermot, the master of live TV,

“I can’t believe it, it’s going to be such an amazing experience. To top it off my dad gets to be my plus one and walk me down my first ever red carpet. What more can a girl ask for?"

Scarlett first found fame on MTV show Beauty School Cop Outs before she and her family won over viewers on Channel 4's Gogglebox.

But it was her performance on I'm A Celebrity that really catapulted Scarlett to fame, which the young Geordie is clearly taking full advantage of.
