‘She’s hot property right now, so needs to be by herself,’ Amanda said.

The 46 year old added: ‘I can’t wait to see her in her new told on Saturday night takeaway with Ant and Dec. You look after her, boys!’

According to The Sun the pair called it a day as the Gogglebox star needed to ‘concentrate on her career.’

Scarlett and Luke reportedly split last month after a year of dating, with a source telling The Sun: ‘Scarlett is sad about her break up with Luke but she really hopes they can remain friends.

‘At the moment she needs to concentrate on her career. After all, she’s got plenty of time to settle down in the future,’ the source added.

Scarlett sparked rumours of a split when she posed on the red carpet with her dad at the National Television Awards in January, instead of boyfriend Luke.

Ahead of the ceremony in London, Scarlett tweeted: ‘Got my date for the red carpet, my bestie, my dad.’
