When it comes to Gogglebox, there’s one star who really steals the show for us here at LOOK HQ: Scarlett Moffatt.
Yep, alongside her mum Betty and dad Mark, Scarlett has made a name for herself as one of the funniest characters to have graced the show – and apparently we aren’t the only ones who think so.
Capital North East’s Breakfast Show has confirmed that Scarlett will take on the role of presenter on next Wednesday’s breakfast show.
Capital North East’s Managing Editor Giles Tanner said: “We are delighted to have Scarlett joining the team. She’s a local girl with a love for hit music and showbiz gossip – she has already fitted in with the team and we are all excited about Monday’s show.”
But for all die-hard Gogglebox fans, there’s no need to worry as a spokesperson for the Channel 4 hit TV show has reassured us that Scarlett will keep her part on the programme:
“Scarlett has told us she is covering a short maternity leave. This is a personal job and not related to her appearance on Gogglebox.”
And according to a recent interview with Now Magazine, it sounds like Scarlett’s TV gigs are making a pretty big name for her.
“It’s a bit mad because I can’t just tie my hair up and run out any more. It’s always when you do that loads of people ask for a photo and it’s all over Facebook. I never thought I’d have to worry about things like that, so it’s weird that I do now.”
She’s even been mingling with the stars..
“Sarah Millican messaged me to see if I wanted to see one of her shows and I speak to Jason Manford all the time. Me and my family met up with him and went to see The Producers. It’s crazy because they’re people I watch on telly and really like. The fact they even know who I am is so strange. I still can’t get my head around it.”
