Scarlett Moffatt and Ant McPartlin were sat together at the National Television Awards and fans couldn’t help but notice they seemed to be getting on very well. They are both single after all so could their be romance in the air?
They were sat together with Declan Donnelly on the night of the awards. Ant McPartlin was the winner of the the best challenge show award for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and also shared the best presenter award with his co-host and best friend Declan Donnelly. They almost didn’t make it though as they were stuck in bad traffic before the awards show started.
The popular Geordie presenter who has recently announced that he will be divorcing his wife of 11 years, Lisa McPartlin, has previously worked with Scarlett on I’m A Celebrity and also Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Ant and Dec were joined on stage by Scarlett as they received their awards on the night. Viewers though were quick to pick up on the fact that Ant put his arm around Scarlett’s shoulders whilst walking off stage and the rumours started about a possible romance between the pair.
One twitter user said: “Don’t know why but i’m getting #scarlettmoffatt #antmcpartlin vibes @ScarlettMoffatt @antanddec both lovely people so why not…! Just saying is all…!”
One other twitter user hinted towards them getting together and said:
“Here’s a suggestion. Ant Mcpartlin and Scarlett Moffat should get together. What a beautiful couple.”
A third Twitter user went straight ahead and said, “I reckon Ant will end up with Scarlett. There, I’ve said it.”
The whole night was a very emotional event for Ant with his recent battles. He even mentioned it had been a tough year for him during his acceptance speech and struggled to hold back his emotions while he collected his award at the O2 arena London.
“I’m emotional, very emotional. Because of the last 12 months what I’ve been through, winning this award is particularly emotional for me,” Ant said in his acceptance speech.
“I’d personally like to thank my all my family, all my friends. Some are here tonight. I love you, thank you very much. But thank you to all of you for your support. It really, really means the world. It’s helped me get through. Turning to Dec, he added: “And thanks to you little guy! I love you man, thank you.”
“It’s been emotional to say the least, I’ll use that word again. Ive had a very tricky year, but you know it’s great to get back to work and we loved the last series of I’m a Celebrity and we’re currently shooting stuff for Britain’s Got Talent and Takeaway. I’m back in the swing of things so it’s really good,”
One of the awards he won was the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award and while collecting McPartlin said, “Thank you very much, it’s an honour to pick this award up and we started filming Saturday Night Takeaway today and we filmed a tribute to Bruce so this is very apt.”
Here’s a suggestion. Ant Mcpartlin and Scarlett Moffat should get together. What a beautiful couple. ??

Scarlett has recently revealed how Ant and Dec helped her deal with her nerves over starting her role as presenter of I’m A Celeb’s Extra Camp. She admitted she was worried about how she would come across on the show.
“They just said ‘be you’, which coming from them, when they are my absolute heroes, gives me the confidence to just be me,” she told the Star.
“If they have faith in me, I must be doing something half decent – it’s like my mum and dad are here.”
That came after the Sunday Mirror revealed Ant called Scarlett when he cam out of rehab where he’d been on an 8 week course for his addiction to prescription drugs.
When he came out he and Scarlett supposedly talked “non-stop” and she had been a “great support” to Ant. He apparently had been there for her when she split form her boyfriend Luke Crodden.
A representative for Ant McPartlin though has hit back at what they call “B****hit” suggestions that he could be in a relationship with Scarlett Moffatt.
There has been lot of speculation from fans as we have written above but a spokesperson for Ant has been quick to dismiss that by saying any rumours about the pair are “total b****hit”
On the 13th January is was announced in a statement from one of Ant’s representatives that he would be splitting from Lisa Armstrong. It read: “Ant is very sad to announce that, after 11 years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin. Ant asks for privacy at this difficult time, for both himself, Lisa and their immediate families. No further statement will be made.”
Ant’s soon to be ex wife has hinted recently that she won’t be a pushover in her divorce from the presenter.
After her split she retweeted a post from one of her followers who aimed the tweet at her by saying:
“5 years ago I was where you are now… My wee mantra, Got me through. Chin up girl you got this x.” The quote read: “Life is going to get hard sometimes. So get the [expletive] up and get your [expletive] together. You’re either an ocean or a puddle. Don’t be a puddle. People walk through puddles like they’re nothing. Oceans [expletive] destroy cities.”
A little later, Lisa who is 41, retweeted another from a fan which read:
“For what it’s worth; you are a dignified, beautiful, strong and talented woman. You’re having a bit of a tough year so far but clearly the tide is turning and ultimately you will kick 2018’s butt! #support.”
It has been estimated that the couple’s divorce settlement could cost him around £31 million. That is half of Ant’s £62 Million fortune which would make it one of the largest sums of money paid out in a divorce settlement by a UK celebrity.
Ant and Dec are reportedly planning a golfing getaway after they finish the next chunk of filming for BGT and Saturday Night Takeaway.
