Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt has reportedly signed up to the I'm A Celebrity 2016 line up.

But could it cost her a place on the Channel 4 series?

According to The Sun newspaper, Scarlett is set to swap her front room for the Aussie jungle as she heads Down Under later this year.

A source told the tabloid: “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 4 so they want a bit of the action.

However the latest report follows claims earlier this year that Scarlett had been 'banned' from appearing due to her Gogglebox contract.

A source said back in April: “ITV have made an approach for her to go on I’m A Celeb but she isn’t allowed. It would break her exclusivity contract with C4."

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said at the time: “Scarlett is not taking part in I’m a Celebrity and will continue to entertain Gogglebox fans from her sofa.”

It was claimed that Scarlett would only be free to join other shows if she quit her role on Gogglebox.

George Gilbey did just that in 2014 to sign up for Celebrity Big Brother, although his family proved so popular that he ended up being invited back.

More rumoured celebs for I'm A Celeb this year include Spencer Matthews, who lasted three days in last year's series, Made In Chelsea's Lauren Hutton, former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Cheryl's ex Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer.

I'm A Celebrity 2016 will air on ITV later this year in November time.
