Will Scarlett Moffatt return to Gogglebox after winning I'm A Celebrity 2016? Her mum speaks out


Scarlett Moffatt's future on Gogglebox is up in the air after she was crowned winner of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2016 last night.

The 26-year-old found fame on the Channel 4 show, giving her thoughts on the nation's top telly alongside her mum Betty and dad Mark.

However, it is unclear whether she will return to Gogglebox after reaching a wider audience on I'm A Celebrity - which is one of the UK's most watched programmes, with around 10million viewers.

Speaking to The Sun, Betty indicated that she and her family would love to stay put - but their fate is in the hands of the broadcaster.

"If we don’t go back, we don’t. That’s up to Channel 4," she commented.

"It’s opened a lot of doors for Scarlett and has enabled her to achieve some of her dreams. There’s no negative."

The Moffatts could be dropped by C4 bosses, as it is believed they prefer Gogglebox participants to be seen as regular people and not celebrities.

In 2014, George Gilbey and his relatives were axed from the cast after he joined Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother.

However, producers eventually relented and allowed the Gilbeys to return earlier this year.

On the other hand, Scarlett could choose to quit the show and focus on launching a media career. Reports claim that she could make millions off the back of her I'm A Celebrity victory.

Speaking before Scarlett's arrival in the Aussie outback three weeks ago, a Gogglebox spokesperson said: "The show's producers have not had any conversations with Scarlett about leaving or returning."

Scarlett was named I'm A Celebrity's latest Queen of the Jungle last night, beating Joel Dommett and Adam Thomas in the grand final.
