Scarlett Moffatt could be set for her own Channel 4 show on a Friday night.

The I'm A Celebrity star and former Goggleboxer has filmed a pilot episode called The Comedy Project, The Sun newspaper reports.


If it makes it to air, the show would see Scarlett starring in a number of comedy improv sketches alongside comedians and impressionists.

A promo for the potential new series says: “With costume changes at each turn, in one instant they could be a co-anchor in our news show and in the next, a contestant on a baking show, or even giving a speech to the prime minister in the Houses of Parliament.”

A source said of the show: “Scarlett is now in huge demand from the TV industry.

“Channel 4 feel they created her through Gogglebox and don’t want to lose her to ITV.

“She was the first celebrity who they approached to do the pilot for The Comedy Project, which is likely to become a big show for them.”

The new TV gig is the latest for Scarlett, who last weekend made her debut alongside Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway.

However her rise to fame has come at a price: Scarlett recently admitted she's "gutted" after her family were dropped from Channel 4's Gogglebox.

A spokesperson for the Channel 4 series confirmed earlier this month: “The Moffatt family will not be appearing in this series.”

A source told the Sunday People newspaper: “The whole premise of Gogglebox is normal people commenting on the TV.


“Scarlett is now a celebrity in her own right so it made sense she wouldn’t continue.

“She and her parents came as a package. It wouldn’t work so well without all three of them.”
