Scarlett Moffatt has been axed from her from her role on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway after just three years on the programme.

“We thank Scarlett for all of her hard work on the show and will announce details of the new series nearer transmission,” they told The Mirror.
An ITV source also reportedly told the publication that Scarlett won’t be replaced by another star, explaining, “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.
“Scarlett did a great job on the series and we thank her for all her hard work but sadly the new series doesn’t have room for her on screen role.”
Back when Scarlett’s place on the show was announced, the telly star admitted that it was her dream job to work with icon on screen duo, Ant and Dec.
“I’ve watched Saturday Night Takeaway with my family for as long as I can remember, I’m such a huge fan, so to be part of one of the biggest entertainment shows out there, with two of my all-time TV heroes Ant and Dec, is an absolute dream.”
