Sharing the post the day after Father's Day, Scarlette captioned it: "Well yesterday was a huge success! Shame the other bro and his family couldn't be there, but they were in spirit!! Thanks @sushisamba for the lovely service and Happy Father's Day again to all the Dads!"

Opening up about their relationship in a recent interview, Scarlette revealed that she's found jetting off to far-flung locations for the Channel 4 show trickier now that she has a partner. She told The Express: "I've done this show primarily being single and I've got a partner now.

"We've been together since [the first] lockdown and we've known each other for years and but have now got together," she continued. "But it's a bit tricky going away because I'm leaving him at home and he's doing his thing and I'm away. My hours can be crazy sometimes so I guess that's what's hard."
