Now, the 35-year-old presenter has thanked the Geordie double act for giving her the push she needed to launch her successful TV career.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star following the launch of the easyJet Holidays Beach-in-a-box campaign, Scarlette shared her bizarre connection to the loveable duo before her showbiz fame.

She revealed: “I got to go on tour with Ant and Dec years ago as one of their backup dancers on their arena tours and I just remember then just loving them.

“And it’s because of them that I'm a presenter because I actually remember one night I said to them, ‘Guys I want to be a TV presenter, would you mind if I interviewed you?’

“They were so forthcoming and they said, ‘Yep, Scarlette, if it’s what you want to do, let’s do an interview.'”

Scarlette went on to reveal some of the priceless advice the pair gave her which helped her to take the plunge and apply for a role on A Place In The Sun.

The property expert continued: “They gave me so much advice and encouragement and they said, ‘If you want to do it, you should do it because you’re actually brilliant’. And so, it’s thanks to them that I'm actually here because I don’t think I would be doing this now.

“They gave me advice, you know, use an expertise to get into presenting. I did property development so I used that as my way into doing A Place In The Sun because you have to have a property background.

“And that was my first ever presenting job and then I've just kind of kept going ever since then."

It comes after the British holiday company launched their new campaign to battle the January Blues with a kit that allows customers to bring the beach to their living room.

The jam-packed kit includes 20kg of sand, a UVB lamp, a Mediterranean backdrop, an aroma diffuser, a Pina Colada cocktail kit and a wave sound simulator to create the feeling of the gorgeous holiday experience in a fraction of the price.

I'm A Celebrity contestant gushed said: “I'm lucky to be able to frequently jet off to warmer climates and feel most at home with the sand between my toes.
