Scarlett Moffatt shuts down Ant McPartlin romance rumours

Scarlett Moffatt has put a stop to rumours of a romance between her and Ant McPartlin.

The rather ridiculous speculation followed Ant's split from his wife last month.

But, for avoidance of doubt, Scarlett has insisted Ant and Dec are both "like brothers" to her.

"They’re like the brothers I never had," she said. They’re genuinely lovely, down to earth people who offer me a lot of brilliant career advice."

Scarlett added: "Honestly walking into the first ever script meeting and realising ‘wow I’m a part of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, just casually sat having a cup of tea with the most amazing people at ITV, discussing the script.'"

The Gogglebox star will return to Saturday Night Takeaway this weekend, but it seems it'll take a lot to beat last year's series finale in Disney World.

"Being Mary Poppins in the grand finale in Florida was amazing," Scarlett said. "A proper pinch me moment!

"I know things like that only happen once in a life time and being on stage alongside Ant, Dec and Cat Deeley (who stole the Crown Jewels) the three heroes I watched every Saturday on SMTV live is a moment I wish I could bottle up and give to other people as the happiness I felt was overwhelming. "

Meanwhile Scarlett has big hopes for this year's guests.

The show will begin with Kylie Minogue and Olly Murs, but Scarlett is hoping for more throughout the series.

She said of her dream guests: "Guest announcer would be Rupaul he would be such a giggle and bring lots of sassiness!

"End of Show Show imagine a Spice Girls reunion with Ant and Dec popping up on stage, they could be tumeric and nutmeg spice."

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway starts this Saturday, February 24, at 7PM on ITV.
