“They are like my absolute heroes, so to be working with them… I don’t actually know my role yet, I know it’s a new role, but I don’t think anyone’s decided what I’m doing yet… but I’m on board!” she told This Morning.

 

Scarlett has also signed up to join forces with presenter and comedian Alan Carr as they co-host a new entertainment show, while she will also front a return of reality dating show, Streetmate.

 

The former Gogglebox regular said: “It’s amazing isn’t it?! It is a bit crazy.”

Streetmate, the cult classic programme of the late 1990s will see Scarlett actively go out on to the streets to seek out dates for shy, retiring singletons.

“It’s such a prestigious [show] – everyone says ‘oh I wish they’d bring it back’ and I was like ‘so do I’ and to be asked to be the new host, and I get to chat to randomers, which is my favourite thing in the world, and I love a love story!” she said.
