Scarlett Moffatt says Northern girls have no role models

Who can teenage girls in the north of England turn to when they’re looking for a little guidance in life?

Marnie from Geordie Shore? Or how about Kerry Katona?

Well, exactly.

But luckily I’m A Celebrity favourite Scarlett Moffatt wants to change all that, and has decided to write a book to demonstrate that northern girls are about “more than just getting drunk.”

“The thing is I feel like I am a bit of a feminist but I would struggle to find someone who is a Northern woman who is shown to be strong and clever and intelligent because I feel like there is nobody,” she explained to fellow campers Sam Quek (from Liverpool) and Carol Vorderman (who grew up in North Wales).

“That is why I wanted to write a book because I felt like every other person who is from the North, who is a young girl – I feel like the only voices that we are ever given… all people want to know about is how drunk we get, who we have dated, who we haven’t.”

“You don’t hear a lot of regional voices on TV, you just don’t at all,” she concluded.

Sounds like someone’s after a book deal to us.

And anyway, all this talk of a lack of regional voices is a bit rich when you consider how packed full of Geordies the I’m A Celebrity presenting line-up is. And hey, we can think of at least ONE young Geordie woman who is about much, much more than just getting drunk. Ring any bells, Scarlett?

Yep, the Sun’s taken the Gogglebox star’s comments as a personal slight on poor old Vicky Pattison, who, er, may once have got drunk on Geordie Shore, yes – but is finishing off a successful year which included launching her very own clothing range and even presenting Loose Women.

How could you, Scarlett?!
