Offers have been flooding in for the former office worker and Gogglebox star since she won the jungle contest last month, but Scarlett has reportedly told her management team she wants to enjoy Christmas with her boyfriend Luke Crodden and her family before making any decisions about her future.

A friend said: "She wants to enjoy a lovely Christmas, then make a proper shot at a long-term television career. She is prepared to work hard to achieve it."

Regular Bake Off hosts Mel and Sue confirmed after it was announced the show was moving from the BBC to Channel 4 that they would not be staying with the programme, as did original judge Mary Berry.
