Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt wants to join Strictly Come Dancing

Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt says she's hoping to compete on Strictly Come Dancing.

The TV star, famous for just watching TV herself, wants to hit the dancefloor.

But Scarlett's worried she may be too trained for the show.

"I’d love to go on Strictly but I just don’t think they’d let me on," she said recently. "I’m basically a ringer, as I’ve danced against some of the professionals in competitions when I was younger.’"

Scarlett continued (via Now Magazine): "I watch it now and I do have a slightly different take on the show.

"I’ll be watching someone dance and I’ll say, 'He had no rise and fall and no lilt,' and my dad will look and me like I’m mental and then Len Goodman will comment and he’ll say exactly the same thing."

Even if Scarlett were to be invited to join the Strictly line up, it's unlikely she'd be able to.

It was reported this week that the Gogglebox regular had to turn down a stint on I'm A Celebrity this year due to her contract with Channel 4.

The Sun newspaper said that due to her exclusive agreement, she couldn't take part in other shows.

“Scarlett is one of the most sought-after names in TV right now. Producers and casting directors have cottoned on to how popular she is," a source told the tabloid.

They revealed: “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 in response to the reports: “Scarlett is not taking part in I’m a Celebrity and will continue to entertain Gogglebox fans from her sofa.”
