The boys are full of love for Saturday Night Takeaway pal Scarlett

Scarlett Moffatt was a big hit with viewers when she joined the Saturday Night Takeaway line-up this year and it turns out that Ant and Dec are just as smitten with her too.

The duo have confirmed that they’ve signed up the former Gogglebox star for another series of SNT after being thrilled with her work the first time around.

‘Scarlett has signed her contract so we can talk about her! She is back!’ Dec says of the 26-year-old.

‘We loved Scarlett so much! Scarlett is brilliant, she hit the ground running.’

Dec confessed at the BAFTA TV Awards – which saw him and Ant bag the Best Entertainment Programme gong for SNT – that they were desperate to work with Scarlett as soon as they got to know her in the I’m A Celebrity jungle back in November.

And they’ve certainly not been disappointed with how she’s contributed to Takeaway.

‘She bought a real wit and charm to the show that was sadly lacking,’ Dec tells The Sun. ‘She brought this lovely female presence and we loved having her.

‘As soon as we worked with her on I’m A Celebrity we wanted her.’

Praise indeed! No wonder Scarlett was all smiles as she hit the BAFTAs on Sunday night.

The Geordie lass is certainly going to be busy now that she can add the next series of SNT to her diary as she’s already got a lot of exciting new jobs lined up.

Not only is she set to front a revamped version of cult dating show Streetmate but she’s also rumoured to have bagged her very own primetime programme.

Oh, and she’s apparently got another book in the works too. Talk about cramming everything in!

Looks like the decision to leave Gogglebox so that she could head to the jungle most definitely paid off for Scarlett.
