Streetmate dating

For those of you who need reminding, old host Davina Mc Call used to find a random single member of the public and then try to find them a date with another random single member of the public.

"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." To keep Moffatt busy, she is also set to join forces with comedian Alan Carr as they co-host a new entertainment show.

Moffatt revealed she never expected to be offered the job.

"I can't believe Channel 4 have asked me to present this iconic dating show," she said.

This year’s line up has yet to be announced, but previous editions have seen the likes of Geri Halliwell, Jamie Dornan, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher taking part.

Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt is set to star in a revamped version of cult classic reality dating show Streetmate.

The series is a reboot of the iconic matchmaking show, which sees the host, Scarlett, pound the streets across the UK to set up unsuspecting singles on blind dates.

The show, which promises to ‘swipe away the apps’ and find love in real life, was previously hosted by Davina Mc Call from 1998 to 2001, and Scarlett cited the former CBB host as an inspiration when she announced she’d be taking on the role back in January.

Viewers took to Twitter to tweet (as they do) their thoughts, and we've gathered some of the best ones here.

The main talking point was Scarlett herself, and people seemed to think she was a natural choice for the show: New #Streetmate = EPIC!

The parents had several children and one of them, Lance Loud, was openly gay; he occasionally wore lipstick and women's clothes and, in the second episode, took his mother to a drag show.
