It follows reports that Scarlett and her family's house will be transported to a remote African village for a new series.

The British Tribe Next Door will see the Gogglebox stars take part in a unique culture clash and learning experience, as an exact replica of their semi-detached home appears in Namibia while they live alongside the nomadic Himba tribe for a month.

Scarlett said of the new programme: "This is one of the most eye-opening experiences of my life.

"I feel privileged and humbled that the Himba tribe invited us to join them and we have all learnt an enormous amount."
