MailOnline contacted representatives of Scarlett for comment. 

However, it's not all bad news for the 2016 I'm A Celebrity winner as the source stated that she's has many projects in the pipeline that she's 'excited' about. 

The insider added: 'She has got lots of other things lined up such as documentaries and more factual programming. She recently did The British Tribe Next Door and has lots of other exciting things in the pipeline.'

And Scarlett herself hinted at big things to come as she took to her Instagram stories on Monday.

Dressed up to the nines, the star revealed that she had upcoming work projects with the National Lottery and Channel 4.

She also revealed that she's set for her first ever appearance on Loose Women.

Looking stunning in a semi-sheer black top, she said: 'I had a super fun day doing all of the promo and seeing the advert for the first time for the National Lottery’s 25th birthday. I also just filmed a cheeky little thing for Channel 4.'

In a snap posted to Instagram Stories showing her posing outside a swanky London venue, the TV star remarked on her outfit before adding: 'Feel like I have my life together.'

The County Durham native shot to fame in 2014 starring alongside her family on Channel 4's Gogglebox.

She soon became a household name after winning I'm A Celebrity in 2016, with the brunette beauty going on to work with Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway and jungle spin-off  Extra Camp.

Busy as she's been, earlier this year Scarlett made the decision to quit her role on Extra Camp as she had a new project in the works.

She tweeted: 'For three years I have enjoyed a jungle life, being crowned Queen of the Jungle and having the greatest time presenting Extra Camp with Swashy and Joel who I now class as best friends.

'But I have got a project that I’ve been working on (alongside my family) that I am very very excited to announce soon. And because of this, unfortunately, I will not be presenting this year’s Extra Camp but I will certainly be tuning in. LONG LIVE THE JUNGLE.' 

That project went on to be The British Tribe Next Door in which she and her family went to live alongside a Himba tribe in Namibia.
