Channel 4 has axed TV show Host The Week after one episode presented by County Durham's Scarlett Moffatt.

The Gogglebox star fronted the new programme which was unscripted and unrehearsed, attracting only 470,000 viewers.

Scarlett took to Twitter after criticism.

Comedian Jack Whitehall had signed up to host the second episode, but a Channel 4 spokeswoman said this had now been cancelled.

The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' winner met her childhood crush, Blue singer Duncan James, when she hosted the show and was joined by her parents.

She also took part in a sketch as a Channel 4 News presenter, meeting Krishnan Guru-Murthy.
