Scarlett Moffatt says Ant and Dec taught me how to present live TV

Scarlett Moffatt was “taught” how to present live television by Ant and Dec.

31-year-old bubbly star was crowned Queen of the Jungle by the Geordie duo on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ in 2016 and subsequently enjoyed a presenting stint on ‘Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’ as well as ‘Extra Camp’, and she has admitted it was “so good” to have their support.

“That was so good when I first came out of the jungle. Ant and Dec were both so lovely and, you know, they taught us how to present really. That was always quite a little role she told The Sun. I’ve been doing it a long time now so…”

The former ‘Gogglebox’ star – who has been dating policeman Scott Dobinson since 2020 and hosts conspiracy theory podcast ‘Scarlett Moffatt Wants to Believe’ on BBC Sounds with him – has remained tight-lipped about a potential reunion.

Scarlett previously explained that while she has “thought about” appearing on the upcoming ‘I’m A Celebrity’ all-stars show – which will see former campmates from the jungle-based reality show reunite in South Africa for a special spin-off series – she does not want to take part for fear of “tarnishing” her experience from the first time round.

In March, Scarlett admitted she is grateful to Ant and Dec for taking her “under their wing” after her raised profile, following her ‘I’m A Celebrity’ success, made her fearful about leaving her own house.

She said: “I’m so grateful for Ant and Dec. Because I didn’t have anyone in London and they just took me under their wing.

“I’d go for Sunday dinner with them and they’d give me amazing advice and I felt like I had a friend.

“Their accent and everything – I felt like home when I was in their presence – either when we were filming, or we’d go to Dec’s house or to the pub.

“That, alongside calling Samaritans, and openly speaking about my feelings, I finally felt like, ‘Yay, she’s getting back to her old self again’.”

Scarlett Moffatt is reportedly worth a staggering £1 million+
