Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt has claimed she's turned down an offer to join the Strictly Come Dancing line up for 2016.

The TV favourite has revealed she was asked to join the BBC One series but it would have meant quitting her current show on Channel 4.

"I was asked to do Strictly Come Dancing which was pretty cool but I love Gogglebox too much," she said.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Scarlett added: "It’s the best and easiest job in the world to sit and watch telly. I would have had to choose between the two and it was a no brainer for me.”

Earlier this year, Scarlett revealed she'd "love" to do the show but also feared her past experience would make her a non-starter in the competition.

"I’d love to go on Strictly but I just don’t think they’d let me on," she said in her book. "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."

A Scarlett-less Strictly Come Dancing begins next month on BBC One.
