Scarlett Moffatt odds-on to replace Ant McPartlin for Britain’s Got Talent live shows

Could the former Gogglebox star be set to take the stage next to Declan Donnelly?


Britain’s Got Talent returns to our screens next month – but it is unlikely to mark a permanent comeback for co-host Ant McPartlin.

Though Ant, alongside Declan Donnelly, has pre-recorded the auditions for the show, we make it massively odds-on (1/10) that he won’t front the live shows.

Instead, Saturday Night Takeaway colleague Scarlett Moffatt is being tipped to take his place – the former Gogglebox star rated as odds-on (5/6) to present the live shows alongside Dec.

We reckon Ant’s return is inevitable, though, and we’re quoting 10/11 that he resumes presenting duties on I’m A Celebrity… this winter.

Asked about a BGT move for Moffatt spokesman Paddy Power said: “So Ant’s been decked by ITV – it’s a case of ‘taxi for Ant’ for the next few months. Which seems a wise move.

“While the much-loved Geordie TV presenter recovers in rehab, ITV bosses seem set to really think outside the box – by replacing him with much-loved Geordie TV presenter Scarlett Moffatt. Genius.”
