For the past five years, Scarlette has been a regular on the lifestyle programme helping hopeful house hunters find their dream property in sunnier climates. The presenter previously opened up about how she landed the job and revealed she has a very famous pair to thank.

Speaking to the Express earlier this month, Scarlette revealed that Ant and Dec helped her during her early career. Scarlette, who had appeared on Saturday Night Takeaway in the past, said: "They said, 'If this is what you want to do you should focus on it. You should really do it.' So they got me a few meetings." The presenter went on to audition for A Place in the Sun and landed the role.

"It was their management that gave me a lot of advice and tips. I did my screen test and about 10 days after that I found out that I got the job. It was amazing because I'd never done any presenting."
