Scarlett Moffatt Host The Week Is Axed Asset

With stints as a co-host on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Take Away, not to mention being lined-up for the newly revamped Streetmate, Scarlett's TV career was looking very promising.

There's no doubt that Scarlett Moffatt is the Queen of reality television, so we all had high hopes for the former 'Gogglebox' star when she spread her wings in the world of presenting.

With stints as a co-host on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Take Away, not to mention being lined-up for the newly revamped Streetmate, Scarlett's TV career was looking very promising.

Or so we thought.

The 26-year-old had been hired for her first ever solo presenting gig for brand new entertainment show 'Host The Week' but it was cancelled after just 450,000 people tuned in to watch it.

A spokesperson for Channel 4 said: "We’re brave enough to take risks with innovative programme ideas but also to acknowledge they don’t all work and move on."

Host The Week was based on the same format as ITV's The Nightly Show, where different celebrities would take the reigns as host on the unrehearsed and unscripted show each week.

Much like ITV's offering, the Channel 4 show has struggled with ratings, despite snapping up some big names to take part in the improvised skits.

A source told The Sun that Host the Week just didn’t resonate with the public, commenting:

"Channel 4 tried to give something new a go but it hasn’t worked on any level.

"It did not land with viewers and they’ve decided to not only leave the second episode but completely pack in the show."

"It’s unfortunate for Scarlett as she ends up the only host of the show that didn’t work from the word go," the source added.

It looks as though the axing might not have had anything to do with Scarlett's ability to host a show, as the programme faced fierce competition from the likes of Love Island and Big Brother which also took 9pm slots.

Poor Scarlett!
