Axed Scarlett Moffatt says Saturday Night Takeaway will be ‘amazing’ without her

Scarlett Moffatt has spoken out after she was dropped from Saturday Night Takeaway.

The Mirror exclusively spilled Scarlett won't be returning to Ant And Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway when the show returns in early 2020.

And the ex Saturday Night Takeaway personality promised the show would go on to be "amazing" without her.

The telly star held no resentment as she still gushed her former co-stars Ant McPartlin, Dec Donnelly and Stephen Mulhern would do a great job.

During an appearance on Matthew Wright's Talk Radio show, Scarlett held herself together amid her TV career crumbling.

She said: "I don’t know why this is a big story because it hasn’t been on for two years.

"It’s not like a rolling contract. They are just changing the format of the show.

"My bit was like challenge Anneka, and they have taken that out. It will still be amazing with Ant and Dec and Stephen, what a trio of men."

Scarlett had stepped up to the plate when she co-presented the 2018 series finale with Dec after Ant was involved in the drink-driving car smash.

The Gogglebox star will not be replaced on the show.

It comes after The Mirror made the big reveal about Scarlett being dropped from her "dream" job.

The jungle queen had first landed the job alongside the double act in 2017 following her win on I'm A Celeb in 2016.

An ITV spokesman said: “Scarlett Moffatt won’t feature as a contributor in the 2020 series of Saturday Night Takeaway.

"We thank Scarlett for all of her hard work on the show and will announce details of the new series nearer transmission”

An ITV source added: “Show bosses are planning lots of new and exciting features for the 2020 series alongside the return of viewer favourites.

"Scarlett Moffatt won’t feature in the new series but she’s not being replaced. It will be just Ant and Dec and Stephen Mulhern who will return to host Ant vs Dec."
