The 46-year-old said: “She’s hot property right now, so needs to be by herself.”

She added to Fabulous magazine: “I can’t wait to see her in her new role on Saturday night takeaway with Ant and Dec.

“You look after her, boys!”

The I’m A Celebrity winner is said to have been “too busy” for a relationship and wants to “focus on her career.”

A source told The Sun: “Scarlett is sad about her break up with Luke but she really hopes they can remain friends.

“It’s a positive thing that Scarlett’s schedule is so busy at the moment as it will take her mind off the split.”

They added: “At the moment she needs to concentrate on her career.

“After all, she’s got plenty of time to settle down in the future.”

But, even though Scarlett’s career is taking off, her parents time on TV is slowly coming to an end.

It has been confirmed that the family have been dropped from Gogglebox due to Scarlett’s fame soaring.

A spokesperson said: “The Moffatt family will not be appearing in this series.”

They added: “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.”

Despite this, Scarlett will be preparing to appear on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, which starts next week.
