Former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt seems to have a new job after leaving I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp after the 2018 series ended.

The TV star would have been in Australia right now had she not quit the show.

Instead she’s in Blackpool for her new gig.

We’d guess the work is slightly chillier than her old job.

Instead of enjoying the average mid-twenties temperature that Australia usually has around this time of year, Scarlett had to wrap up for her new responsibility of turning on Blackpool’s Christmas lights.

Then again, the 29-year-old did admit she quit the show because it was ruining her Christmas.

She told New Magazine: ‘It was a conscious decision because I’ve been in Australia for the past three years and you only get back home a couple of days before Christmas.

‘Also, because I’ve just been to Namibia for six weeks filming a new show with my family called The British Tribe Next Door, I just really wanted to be at home this year.’

Fair enough.

When she announced she was leaving on Instagram, the star said she’d had an incredible time presenting the show for three years alongside Joe Swash and Joel Dommett.

Scarlett wrote: ‘For three years I have enjoyed a jungle life, being crowned queen of the jungle, and having the greatest time presenting Extra Camp with Swashy and Joel, who I now class as best friends.

‘The jungle absolutely changed my life and I am massively grateful to everybody who voted for me whilst in the jungle and for your constant support to date and everybody who tuned in to Extra Camp.

‘Massive thank you to all the team including Richard, Angela, Toni, pecks and of course @antanddec and @hollywilloughby @joeldommett and @realjoeswashy but I have got a project that I’ve been working on (alongside my family) that I am very very excited to announce soon.’
