Scarlett Moffatt had viewers in hysterics during Saturday night's episode of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway after a live segment of the show went wrong! TheI'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here winner took a helicopter to a random street in the UK, where viewers of the popular show were told to stand and wave at their windows to be in with a chance of being flown to the studios and watching the show live in the 'best seats in the house'. However, when Scarlett arrived on the street she couldn't find a single person at their windows!

The quick-thinking Gogglebox star ended up knocking at a house with its lights on while pointing out things on the street, including a lamp post and a "random cat" to encourage viewers to recognise where she was. When a bemused man answered the door, Scarlett shouted: "Hello! Can you come on Saturday Night Takeaway right now?" When he said he could, she then joked: "Well go put your shoes on, you can't come in your slippers!"

After inviting herself in, Scarlett then spotted that the man and his wife had been watching the show after all, but they were watching it three minutes behind and so weren't ready at the window. Fans were quick to praise Scarlett's debut appearance on the show, with one writing: "Still giggling at @ScarlettMoffatt on #takeaway last night! Makes it so much funnier when you can relate as if she's one of your girls." Another added: "Absolutely loved seeing @ScarlettMoffatt on #SaturdayNightTakeaway she had me in stitches @antanddec can't wait to watch the next one." Scarlett herself then thanked fans for their support, tweeting: "Can't thank you all enough for your amazing supportive tweets!! I love you all so much, I've read them ALL & I've been in (happy) tears."
