On Instagram she wrote: “We are going to miss doing #gogglebox so so much but can’t wait to watch the new series (good luck my fellow goggleboxers you will smash it love the Moffatts).”

The 26-year-old also responded to a fan and said: “We are gutted too, thought my Mam and dad (and little Ava) would still be able to do it but we will still be watching. [sic]”

According to the Sunday People, her parents Betty and Mark have been dropped by producers as the show “wouldn’t work so well without all three of them.”

A TV insider said: “The whole premise of Gogglebox is normal people commenting on the TV. Scarlett is now a celebrity in her own right so it made sense she wouldn’t continue.

“She and her parents came as a package. It wouldn’t work so well without all three of them.”

We think it would work fine!

A spokesperson for Gogglebox, which is back on our telly’s next week confirmed: “The Moffatt family will not be appearing in this series.”

Such a shame!

This news comes after Scarlett is about to start a new job on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Oh how far she’s come.

Pictured days after breaking up with him, the star shared a photo of herself with Ant & Dec at dinner.

Looks like she has well and truly moved on!
