Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt turned down Strictly – “it was a no brainer”

Because Gogglebox is literally the easiest job in the world...


Scarlett Moffatt was approached to be on Strictly Come Dancing and she turned it down… swearing allegiance to Gogglebox: “It’s the best and easiest job in the world to sit and watch telly. I would have had to choose between the two and it was a no brainer for me.”


She has a point.

In fact, she said she there was only one other TV show she’d agree to do – and even then she wouldn’t leave the easiest job in the world: “I wouldn’t leave Gogglebox for any show,” Scarlett told The Daily Star on Sunday, “but if I could do one and stay on it I would choose the jungle… I think it would be really cool to do the challenges and face your fears.” Hint hint.

Former Goggleboxer George Gilby signed up to appear on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014, meaning he had to give up Gogglebox and actually WORK for a living. 

Scarlett clearly has other ideas, and who can blame her.

It’s a shame we won’t see her on the Strictly dancefloor though, as she also revealed: “I’m basically a ringer, as I’ve danced against some of the professionals in competitions when I was younger.”
