Scarlett Moffatt Praised By 'This Morning' Fans For Heartbreaking Confession

Scarlett Moffatt has become quite the celebrity since rising to fame on Gogglebox, with some people even calling her a national treasure. Fans fell in love with her bubbly personality even more when she appeared on I'm A Celebrity, where she was crowned Queen of the Jungle last year.

But the Geordie hasn't always been so confident, revealing how she had to change schools because of the relentless bullying she suffered at the hands of a 'girl gang'. Scarlett appeared on This Morning, telling the hosts that she recently ran into one of those bullies, and she did not hold back.

The TV star told Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes she came face-to-face with the bully in ASDA, of all places. The woman said to her: "My kids think I'm really cool because I'm friends with you. And as soon as she said the F word, the friend word, I just like, I'm normally really calm but I was like 'We were never friends, why are you saying that? I had to move schools because of you and your girl gang because you were just awful to me, how dare you say that."

She adds that she told the bully: "I hope that your kids never meet anyone who was like you were at school and then I sort of had a mic drop moment and dropped my basket and walked out."

The Gogglebox star added: "When I was 11, I was in a bike accident and I smashed my front teeth, then a few months later I got Bell's Palsy. I was an easy target.

"The thing that was the worst were the threats. I would get out of school ten minutes early because they threatened to beat me up."

Scarlett was also promoting the show's its anti-bullying campaign 'Be Kind', and was praised by This Morning fans on Twitter for being so honest about her struggle.

One viewer tweeted: "Just loved Asda story! So glad that she said that to the bully!!"

"Loved seeing U this morning. Well done for speaking out and some sound advice to kids," added a second.

A third praised: "Wow,seen on talking about standing up to her school bullies - absolutely amazing! Wish I had her guts!"

"Think is an absolute inspiration for sharing her story on .. gives hope to all those suffering from bullying," exclaimed a another person.

Scarlett just announced she is this year's presenter for I'm A Celeb's Extra Camp along with show regular Joe Swash and 2016 runner up and comedian Joel Dommett.In an Instagram post, she wrote: "Absolute dream come true! Hosting Extra Camp with these two handsome chaps, roll on Australia, the countdown for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is on."
