So when she met them as the winner of 2016's I'm A Celebrity which they host, she lapped up their tips on how to make it in the industry.
Moffatt told Metro: "I was very fortunate to work with Ant and Dec…it was like going to the university of presenting.
"A good tip I learned, is making people feel comfortable. So when I’m interviewing or working with people who’ve never done TV before, like Love Bites, I always make a couple of mistakes, purposely, at the start of any show.
"And that makes people realise, 'ah, this is her job and she’s made a mistake', and it doesn’t matter, you can do it again. It instantly puts people at ease. The atmosphere is so much better."
TV and podcast presenter Moffatt also said that I'm A Celebrity had "changed everything" for her as she never expected to be famous, but said that one of her main reasons for doing the ITV show had been to meet Ant and Dec.
She added that she had been hoping to get "six months to a year of doing something I love" out of the contest, so said that she felt very lucky to still be working in 2022.
