The star became a fan favourite with viewers for her dance moves as well as her quizzing of Boy George.

Before camp she was also known for her presenting work on the Channel 4 series, A Place In The Sun as well as her various appearances on other shows including The One Show as well as Channel 5's Jeremy Vine.

Taking to her Instagram story she said: "I probably shouldn't have told you just yet in case they decide they don't want me anymore.

"But yes, I am going to be covering for the legend that is Richard Arnold on GMB, the Entertainment section, Good Morning Britain. I'm actually going to be covering over the festive period. Mind Blown!"

She added: "This past week, in fact, since I've got back from the jungle things have been mental.

"So I have my own segment on Lorraine now, I'm covering over Christmas for Richard Arnold on GMB, I'm going to have my own radio show on Heart for Christmas Eve. I'm going to be on Soccer AM! Oh my goodness there is so much happening!"

This comes after she first revealed the news to the Secure the Insecure podcast.

Speaking to host Johnny Seifert, she opened up on how appreciative she is of the opportunities at ITV.

She explained: "So you're not technically allowed to be across any other shows in daytime. So This Morning, Loose Women, Lorraine and GMB. You kind of can either do one or the other. Luckily and very nicely, they've allowed me to do both GMB and Lorraine."

She also revealed that she is set to work for a three day stint, as she said: "I’m covering Richard Arnold for his Christmas break. So I'm on their 28th 29th and 30th of December."

This comes shortly after Scarlette revealed on the podcast, that Love Island star Olivia Attwood, 31, is not included in the campmates WhatsApp group chat.

Olivia – who was forced to leave the show on medical grounds after just 48 hours on the show – is apparently still waiting to join in on the jungle banter.

Discussing the WhatsApp group, Johnny asked: "So she not in the WhatsApp group?," to which Scarlette replied: "No."

She continued: "No, don't at me guys. Don't ask me. No, she's not.

"But I don't have her number. I'm Group Admin now. So we'll get her in."
