SHE appeared alongside singer Boy George in I’m A Celebrity and now Scarlette Douglas wants to follow in his footsteps off screen.
The property developer and telly host has revealed she has a secret talent for singing and wants to release her own music next year.
In an exclusive interview at last week’s Mobo Awards, Scarlette told how she has written her own songs for years and is the full package as an aspiring pop star because she can also dance.
On the prospect of launching a music career, she said: “I’d like to. As long as people would take me seriously, I’d make sure I made good music. I’ve come from a musical background and I’ve always sung and danced. Maybe I’ll release an EP.
“I used to write a lot of music and I don’t write as much now but I’d like to get back into the swing of it.
“I love entertainment, singing and dancing. As much as I love property development, I’d love to do more entertainment shows.”
Speaking about her favourite artists, she said: “Cat Burns — she is incredible.
“When I went through my break-up earlier this year, I listened to one of her songs, Go, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, she literally put everything I was thinking into this one song.’ ”

The Connor Brothers’ works sell for thousands, but they and Noel have decided to open it up to all.
For a donation of £25 to the Teenage Cancer Trust, fans will be entered into a raffle to win the exclusive print – the first of the 100 being created.
The raffle comes as The Connor Brothers have been announced as ambassadors of the Teenage Cancer Trust – joining long-term charity supporter Noel.

Matt moving back for love
He quit Las Vegas this summer after ten years of performing there to move back to London, where Chantal has a home.
In an exclusive chat, Matt said: “It’s wonderful. We get to build a life and go to the movies and find our local restaurants and watch the England games. It’s a beautiful thing. I feel very fortunate to be able to have love back in my life.”
And asked if he could see himself getting married to jeweller Chantal, he continued: “Of course. What’s the point if you don’t see it going all the way? That’s the plan. I’m a romantic.”
But what isn’t quite as romantic is Matt’s other motive for moving back here.
He said: “The main thing that made me want to come back to London is because of the architecture and the feeling that you have here. It’s a very humbling and beautiful thing.”
