A source told The Sun: "Scarlett and her family are their most popular asset and they know it would be a disaster to lose her."

Fans of Gogglebox will know that Scarlett and her family have left the current series, as she is set to head into the jungle on this year's I'm A Celebrity.

Channel 4 released a statement confirming Scarlett won't be in the current series anymore (obviously!) and stated they have not yet had talks with Scarlett to discuss her leaving or returning to Gogglebox after I'm A Celeb.

But reports have now claimed that Scarlett will return to Gogglebox, as show bosses don't want to lose her.

According to The Sun, a source told the paper: "Scarlett obviously won't appear again on the current series because she is out in Australia, but rather than let her go altogether, producers allowed her to go on I'm A Celeb on the condition that she came back to Gogglebox."

"They realised they made a mistake by sacking George [Gilbey] when he went on [Celebrity] Big Brother," they added. "Scarlett and her family are their most popular asset and they know it would be a disaster to lose her."

George had entered the CBB house back in 2014, and said his appearance on the reality show meant he and his family had to leave Gogglebox. George claimed that he had to give up his place on Gogglebox for his new celebrity status, as show bosses told him the show was based around ordinary people watching TV.

Since then, Channel 4 has welcomed George and his parents, step-dad Pete and mum Linda, back to Gogglebox. They re-joined the show in February, earlier this year.

So, a return isn't completely off the cards for Scarlett and the Moffatt's then?

Claims Scarlett will be back on Gogglebox come after Channel 4 addressed her appearance on I'm A Celebrity's new series.

Their statement read: "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."

Scarlett is set to make her jungle debut on Sunday (13 November) and will join the likes of Wayne Bridge, Emmerdale star Adam Thomas, Carol Vorderman, Larry Lamb, Team GB hockey player Sam Quek, comedian Joel Dommett, Ola Jordan, Diversity star Jordan Banjo and Lisa Snowdon.

And Scarlett seems pretty up for jungle life. She's admitted that, unusually, she is quite keen for tasting the camp delicacies!

Scarlett said: "I am scared of so many things but the one trial I am looking forward to is the eating one. I know I might be the only person who says this but I am really curious to see what the things taste like. If you get an ostrich ear, I want to know what it's like to eat it whole. What is the texture like?"

I'm A Celebrity returns Sunday 13 November on ITV.
