C4 confirms Alan Carr and Scarlett Moffatt project

...as well as a revival of Streetmate

Channel 4 has confirmed that Scarlett Moffatt and Alan Carr are to co-host a new entertainment show. 

Meanwhile, Gogglebox star and I’m A Celebrity winner Moffatt will also be reviving 1990s dating programme Streetmate, which helped make Davina McCall a star.

Both projects were rumoured back in January, after Streetmate returned for a one-off special during Channel 4's Stand Up to Cancer campaign in October.

Moffatt, who described herself as ‘the female Alan Carr’ when she appeared on Gogglebox, she appeared with the comic on Chatty Man last year to promote her book. The as-yet untitled pilot she is making with him will be recorded later this yeat. 

As for Streetmate, Moffatt said, ‘I can't believe Channel 4 have asked me to present this iconic dating show. I remember watching Davina on Streetmate when I was younger and thinking females can present entertainment shows too, I want to do that when I'm older. 

‘It's such a fun show and it's two of my favourite things to do, chat to randomers and a love story.’

Dom Bird, Channel 4’s head of formats said: ‘As one of the stand-out stars of Gogglebox, our audience has grown to love Scarlett over the last few years. She has already been a superb addition to the new series of E4's Virtually Famous and we are delighted to be keeping her in the Channel 4 family with both the Alan Carr entertainment pilot and an exciting new series of Streetmate.’
