The I’m a Celeb winner was linked to Ant earlier this year

Scarlett Moffatt has spoken out about rumours she and Ant McPartlin dated – branding them ‘conspiracy theories’.

The I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here winner was linked to her Saturday Night Takeaway co-host earlier this year, following his split from wife Lisa Armstrong.

But Scarlett, 28, has finally rubbished the claims, telling Dan Wootton’s Interview podcast: ‘Well, it wasn’t true. My family and friends know, so it didn’t really enter my head.

‘I do love a conspiracy theory myself, but I’m more of an alien, mermaid sort of conspiracy girl.’

Rumours surrounding Scarlett and Ant, 42, escalated when she shared a snap of her bedroom on Instagram, revealing she sleeps next to a framed photo of the pair.

However Scarlett – who shot to fame on Channel 4’s Gogglebox – insists the photo, taken on set of Saturday Night Takeaway, simply reminds her of a career high.

She continued: ‘It was a picture of me as Mary Poppins. It even beats me in the jungle, like the highlight of my working life.

‘To do that Saturday Night Takeaway finale in Disney World, honestly, was my dream. So every morning when I wake up and see that photo, I’m like, “I’m living my dream”.’

Scarlett also opened up about her weight, after she dropped to a size eight to promote her fitness DVD. She’s now a size 12 and happier than ever.

She said: ‘I was so focused on staying slim I stopped being sociable. Whereas now I like going to the gym but I also like going for food.’
