Scarlett Moffatt to host the Great British Bake Off on Channel 4?!


Scarlett Moffatt is reportedly lined up to host the Great British Bake Off on Channel 4.

Following her stint in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, where she emerged as the new Queen, Scarlett is said to have TV companies fighting over her.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Channel 4 are particularly keen for Scarlett to front the Bake Off when they take over the BBC One series.

There will be no crocodile nipples on the menu this time, as Scarlet replaces Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.

The pair quit the show along with judge Mary Berry after the channel switch.

A source told the tabloid: “Scarlett is now a serious contender – she opened a lot of eyes to her potential on I’m a Celebrity.

“She is young, very funny and just the type of presenter Channel 4 are looking for to front their version of the show. Scarlett may be inexperienced but the thinking is she could be paired with a more senior co-host.”

However Channel 4 may have to work hard to get Scarlett on board with other channels apparently also keen to get the new Queen of the jungle on their shows.

"Her down-to-earth attitude and quirky sense of humour really won over viewers of I’m A Celebrity," a source said previously. “Channel 4 and ITV are both interested in signing her up exclusively for their channels

The insider claimed to The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “There has even been talk of her fronting her own TV show.

“Scarlett will be ecstatic. She went into the jungle in the hope that it would lead to TV work.

“This is her chance to go from someone known for watching TV on her sofa to someone known for being on TV in her own right.”

The Great British Bake Off is not expected to air on Channel 4 until 2018, due to contract issues.
