If reports are to be believed, Scarlett Moffatt has chosen to bow out of joining Declan Donelly as 'I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here' co-host, since she has decided to sign up for the show's spin-off series instead. Fans were wondering feverishly who would be replacing former co-host Ant McPartlin, after his announcement that he will not be returning to television until next year.

Even though Moffatt was considered to be the favorite to step in, it looks like the former queen of the jungle has decided to team up with comedian Joel Dommett and former EastEnders actor Joe Swash in order to reprise her role on 'Extra Camp'.

According to The Sun which cited TV sources, “She signed ages ago but there’s still speculation on her fronting the show with Dec. Bosses still don’t know if they will replace Ant, but it’s equally possible that Dec will do it on his own."

The insider added, “He showed just how competent he is solo when he did Takeaway and BGT earlier in the year.”

The publication also added that Dommett had previously hinted at a return for the trio earlier this year, even going on to highlight the fact that ITV had been “super happy” with their on-screen chemistry. He said: “It looks like we’ll all be going out again for the spin-off show. It was the most successful show that they’ve had for years. I was so proud of it and what we made of the show.”

This news comes after Lisa Armstrong's friend Craig Robert Young took to social media recently in order to slam McPartlin's "appalling behavior," after their separation. Replying to an article that insisted 'Ant McPartlin is not a victim...he's just rather unpleasant,' Young wrote: "I couldn't agree more. He may have issues, but ultimately, he is responsible for his appalling behavior. I do believe drugs and alcohol addiction is an illness but it's not an excuse for such utter disregard for good humans."

He continued: "Go back to rehab, lose the enablers, the cheaters, the a***lickers. Take responsibilities for your actions. Once you have done the work, in a few years you might come to realize the pain you have caused and the irreparable wounds that can't heal, and you will no doubt be full of remorse. But something tells me it might be too late #sorrynotsorry."

Despite Armstrong's silence, it wouldn't have taken much to predict her thoughts on her estranged husband. The one occasion she had addressed the hot topic was to confirm that she knew nothing of McPartlin's romance with her former personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett until their fling became public. She even hit out at the 42-year-old, saying they were previously friends.
