Scarlett Moffatt does not want to take part in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' all-stars series.
The 31-year-old TV star was crowned Queen of the Jungle on the regular version of the ITV reality series back in 2016 and had considered taking part in the upcoming spin-off - which will reunite old favourites from the long-running show in South Africa - but she has ultimately decided against it in case it "tarnishes" her experience from the first time around.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I was thinking about this because it has come to my attention. People have been talking about it but I just feel like my experience was so good in there and the people I was with, we’re still friends.
"Even though it was like six years ago, we’re still all active on the WhatsApp group chat and I just think I wouldn’t want to then tarnish that experience by going in again and maybe it not living up to expectations."
The former 'Gogglebox' star - who competed against the likes of comedian Joel Dommett and 'Gavin and Stacey' actor Larry Lamb on the survival series - went on to explain that show had "surpassed all of her expectations" and she is happy to simply watch the new show from her sofa when it airs in 2023.
She added: "My whole life, I had been watching the show and, in my head, I had this idea of what it was going to be like and it even surpassed those expectations – and I won! If I go into the all-stars one and don’t win, will it be as fun? So I’m just gonna leave my experience where it was, it was so good I don’t think it will get any better. But I will be watching from my couch and I will be voting!"
Scarlett - who has been dating police officer Scott Dobinson since 2019 - has teamed up with Hampton by Hilton to champion the hotel brand’s new free breakfast buffet, and uncover the five breakfast personality traits of The Smuggler, The Stacker, The Investigator, The Builder, and The Nester.
She said: "I’m on the road for work a lot and it's such a good way to start your day. I would say the main thing for me is making sure that it’s got a good buffet. When I started doing this campaign with Hampton Hotel by Hilton, because they were offering free breakfasts, I was like, ‘Well it’s free and it sounds amazing!’ When you’re on holiday or no matter where you are, it’s just nice. And I’m that person who likes to think as you’re wandering through the breakfast bit – I’m like ‘I wonder if people think I’m the main character!
"Scott’s a Builder! Not like an actual builder in construction, but by the breakfast buffet, he’s a Builder. His is stacked high and he’s got layers upon layers with bacon and chocolate sauce and all that. But I’m definitely the Smuggler, ‘cause it’s free isn’t it, so it is allowed! So I always like to take a croissant for the road or a cheeky bread roll. I’m not like wrapping cling film round a plate!"
