Scarlett Moffatt has conquered the hearts of a nation simply by being herself and has admitted the support of the public has helped her confidence to sky rocket over the past 12 months.
The ‘Gogglebox’ star and her parents are no longer a part of the Channel 4 programme that made them famous but she has seen her career take off to new heights since winning ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ in November, with stints on ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ and news she’ll host her own primetime show later this year.
However, Scarlett insists she’s no happier than she was this time last year.
Asked if she’s the happiest she’s ever been, she told Heat magazine: “I think I was just as happy last year. The only massive difference is I’m a lot more confident.
“I’ve been given a platform to show people that you can achieve anything.”
Scarlett – who recently split from boyfriend Luke Crodden – is often compared to 2015 ‘I’m A Celebrity…’ winner Vicky Pattinson, , but she insists there’s no rivalry between the pair.
She said: “I love Vicky, she’s fab, I just think we’re completely different people.
“My idea of a good night is sitting in the house with a pizza or kebab, having a girls’ night. I’m not really a party animal. But because we’ve both got dark hair, been in the jungle and have a northern accent, people are like, ‘Are you twins?’ ”
Meanwhile, even though she isn’t living with her mum and dad any more, she still syncs her viewing with theirs and can’t resist giving her own commentary on what she’s watching, even though there’s no one there to hear it.
She said: “I always say to my mam, ‘What are you watching?’ And we’ll watch the same thing and text each other.
“And I still talk out loud at the telly, as if I’m still on ‘Gogglebox’.”
Earlier today, Scarlett helped bring a smile to the faces of commuters at Kings Cross Station in London when she joined forces with Mini Babybel, and unveiled a giant edible ‘Belboard’, pictured above, which members of the public could tuck into.
