Scarlett 'was one of the first people Ant called' when he got out of rehab last year
Social media is abound with rumour that Ant McPartlin and Scarlett Moffatt are nurturing a fledgling romance.
And now the Sunday Mirror is claiming that Scarlett was one of the first people Ant called when he got out of rehab.
Mr McPartlin received eight-weeks of treatment for his addiction to prescription drugs last year; he was supported during that time by his wife of 11 years - sadly, however, they announced their divorce earlier this month.
The Sunday World adds that after the TV host left rehab, he and Scarlett talked "non-stop". Friends also said she was a great help to Ant while he found his feet again afterwards.
In turn, he was able to support her when she split from her boyfriend, Luke Crodden, last September.
Ant and Scarlett attended this week's National Television Awards, which took place on Tuesday in London. The Gogglebox star even joined them on stage as they picked up an accolade for Saturday Night Takeaway.

As Mr McPartlin, 42, and Ms Moffatt, 27, walked back to their seats, he put his arm around her shoulders and, well, seemingly viewers reckon they saw sparks fly.
