Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt reveals why she turned down Strictly Come Dancing


Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt revealed she was approached to do Strictly Come Dancing but said it was a "no brainer" to continue doing the "best and easiest job in the world".

The 24-year-old, who was trained as a child by Strictly pro Anton du Beke, made it clear her loyalties lie with the Channel 4 show that made her famous.

She told the Daily Star on Sunday: "I was asked to do Strictly Come Dancing which was pretty cool but I love Gogglebox too much.

"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."

She recently shared a picture of her ballroom dancing from seven years ago, reminiscing about her "toned arms".

Gogglebox fans will remember that George Gilbey's family were ditched from the show when he decided to do a stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house - although they later returned - so we're glad Scarlett didn't decide to jump ship.

She's still managing to diversify her career however, with a Capital radio show and a rumoured weight loss DVD in the works.

And Scarlett has said that she would consider leaving Gogglebox for one reality show.

She reckons she could do well in the I'm A Celebrity jungle. Are you listening, ITV?
