Gogglebox’ star Scarlett Moffatt is set to swap her sofa for the Aussie jungle on ‘the new series of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’, according to reports.

The 26-year-old has reportedly been snapped up by show bosses for this year’s series, which kicks off on ITV later this year.

A source told The Sun: “Scarlett has gone down really well on Gogglebox and I’m A Celeb producers think she’s a perfect fit for them.

“Her hilarious one-liners and frank views make great telly for Channel  so they want a bit of the action.”

Scarlett, who is set to release her own fitness DVD this Christmas, will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Geordie Vicky Pattison, who was crowned queen of the jungle on last year’s ‘I’m A Celeb’.

If Scarlett does enter the jungle, it could mean we won’t be seeing her on ‘Gogglebox’ any more as Channel 4 have strict rules about their stars appearing on rival shows.

Essex lad George Shelley and his family had to quit the Channel 4 show after he signed up to appear on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, although they did return to ‘Gogglebox’ at a later date.

It’s not the first time Scarlett has been approached to appear on a rival TV show.

Earlier this year, she revealed she had been offered the chance to take to the ‘Strictly’ dancefloor, but turned it down.

“I was asked to do ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ which was pretty cool but I love ‘Gogglebox’ too much,” she explained.

“It’s the best and easiest job in the world to sit and watch telly. I would have had to choose between the two and it was a no brainer for me.”
