Scarlett Moffatt won't be appearing in the latest series of Channel 4's Gogglebox, it's been confirmed.

It's as the TV personality joins the line up of ITV's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

It was reported as far back as April this year that jungle bosses wanted Scarlett for the new series, but she was 'banned' due to her Channel 4 contract.

At the time, 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.

And now Scarlett has followed suit after arriving Down Under in Australia this week.

Shortly after, a spokesperson for Gogglebox told DigitalSpy: "Scarlett Moffatt is going to I'm a Celebrity and will no longer participate in this series of Gogglebox.

"The show's producers have not had any conversations with Scarlett about leaving or returning to Gogglebox after her stint in the Jungle.

"The Moffatts have been excellent contributors to Gogglebox, and we are very grateful for all they have given to the show."

Scarlett is one of twelve celebs to have signed up to the I'm A Celebrity 2016 line up, which is due to be officially confirmed tomorrow.

I'm A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here starts on TV on Sunday night.
