Viewers expressed their upset on social media, and Scarlett herself took to Twitter to express her disappointment that her family has lost their spot on the Gogglebox couch.

Since first appearing on the Channel 4 show, Scarlett has become a star in her own right, winning last year's I'm A Celebrity.

And she admitted on Monday evening she thought her family would be able to carry on with the show without her.

"The whole premise of Gogglebox is normal people commenting on the TV", the source explained.

Back in November, things were left a bit up-in-the-air for Betty and Mark when their daughter jetted off to Australia, with a spokesperson for the show telling us: "Scarlett Moffatt is going in to I'm a Celebrity and will no longer participate in this series of Gogglebox".


She added to Fabulous magazine: "I can't wait to see her in her new role on Saturday night takeaway with Ant and December".

According to the Sunday People, her loving parents Betty and Mark had been "dropped" by producers as the show 'wouldn't work so well without all three of them'.

Scar Mo has not been wasting time since being crowned Queen of the Jungle at the end of previous year.

The recent news comes as Scarlett's set to take up a role on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, following her win on I'm A Celeb.

TV presenter Amanda Holden gave her support for the Gogglebox star's decision.


Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz she said of the Jungle Queen "I hope Scarlett has fun with them". Unfortunately, it turns out they will not be appearing on the new series of the show.

She said she has also spoken to Ant and Dec and spoke fondly of her time on the show as a "great run".

Scarlett sparked rumours of a split when she posed on the red carpet with her dad at the National Television Awards in January, instead of boyfriend Luke.

But, even though Scarlett's career is taking off, her parents time on TV is slowly coming to an end.
