Scarlett arriving in Brisbane on Monday.

Channel 4 released a statement to Radio Times on Monday stating: "Scarlett Moffatt is going in to I'm A Celebrity and will no longer participate in this series of Gogglebox.

"The show's producers have not had any conversations with Scarlett about leaving or returning to Gogglebox after her stint in the jungle. The Moffatts have been excellent contributors to Gogglebox, and we are very grateful for all they have given to the show."

We suppose it may have been a bit odd if we had been watching the Moffatt family on TV watching watching Scarlett on TV...

There had been rumours earlier this year that ITV wanted Scarlett for I'm A Celebrity and she'd been approached by Channel 5 for Rylan Clark-Neal's late night show, but both jobs would have gone against an exclusivity contract which Channel 4.

ITV has yet to confirm the official I'm A Celebrity lineup for this year but Scarlett was pictured arriving in Australia on Monday which kind of gives the game away, right?

Other stars pictured at Brisbane airport include former footballer Wayne Bridge, TV presenter Lisa Snowdon, Strictly star Ola Jordan and Team GB hockey player Sam Quek.

The full line-up is:

I'm A Celebrity starts Sunday, 13 November at 9pm on ITV.
