The former 'Gogglebox' star has just left for Down Under in order to present the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! spin-off show 'Extra Camp' in a few weeks' time but she has admitted she started packing her bags as soon as she found out she had the job.

Speaking to new! magazine, she said: "I'm really excited. I've been packed for three weeks! But I won't lie and say I'm not nervous about it all. I'm really hoping that a girl will win this year. There needs to be another queen of the jungle."

The 27-year-old beauty - who won the main show last year - will be hosting the side series alongside Joel Dommett and Joe Swash and she's convinced they'll provide viewers with endless laughs because there is so much "banter" between them when they hang out.

She explained: "Joel and I hang out all the time anyway, but we've been messaging a lot more recently. We banter with one another ... I was most surprised by how difficult the main show is. When I used to watch it, I used to think: 'Oh it can't be that hard' - but it is! And the smell is horrendous. You're vert lucky we don't have smellovision."

Details of the new series are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being but it's believed Ant McPartlin - who sought treatment in rehab earlier this year for drug addiction - will be ready to present the programme alongside his best friend Dec Donnelly.

Scarlett said: "He's fine. We've spoken and I was texting Dec the other day. I think it's really amazing that Ant's spoken about it. The more people that speak about mental health, the better, because then the stigma around it will disappear."
