It looks like Scarlett Moffatt’s winning stint in the I’m A Celebrity jungle has done wonders for her career as she’s landed a massive deal with Channel 4 which will see her front the revival of Streetmate.
After Scarlett won the 2016 series of I’m A Celebrity, reports suggested that major channels such as ITV and Channel 4 were going to war over securing Scarlett Moffatt, but it now appears Channel 4 got there before ITV.
It has been confirmed this morning that Scarlett Moffatt will front Channel 4’s revival of ‘Streetmate’, which originally aired on the Channel back in 1998. The original version was hosted by Davina McCall, which saw her pick a contestant and then try to find them a date with someone off the street.
The second show that Scarlett will be taking on is an entertainment show, which she will co-host with Alan Carr. However, at this point the show has not been fully given the green light, with a pilot being filmed later this year. We’re sure with Alan Carr an Scarlett Moffatt together on one show, it’s definitely going to be picked up.
Speaking about hosting the Streetmate reboot, Scarlett told the Sunday Mirror: “I remember watching Davina on Streetmate when I was younger and thinking females can present entertainment shows too, I want to do that when I’m older.
“It’s such a fun show and it’s two of my favourite things to do, chat to ransomers and a love story”.
Channel 4’s Head of Formats, Dom Bird said in a statement: “As one of the stand-out stars of Gogglebox, our audience has grown to love Scarlett over the last few years. She has already been a superb addition to the new series of E4’s Virtually Famous and we are delighted to be keeping her in the Channel 4 family with both the Alan Carr entertainment pilot and an exciting new series of Streetmate”.
At present, there is no word on when the Streetmate reboot will broadcast.
