Sending Scarlett tonnes of love!

Scarlett Moffatt might be one of the nations' favourite faces on TV at the moment, but it seems that it hasn’t been an easy ride to stardom. 

She’s recently opened up about the horrific bullying that she faced as a schoolgirl.

Talking to This Morning, the ‘Queen Of The Jungle’ revealed, “When I was eleven, the first year of secondary school, I was in a bike accident and I smashed my front teeth, and then a couple of months later I got Bells palsy. So obviously I think I was a bit of an easy target because of all these problems”.

Scarlett went on to explain how she would leave school ten minutes early to avoid bumping into the bullies. She revealed that “the thing that was the worst was sort of the threats, the worry of what could happen, or like, I would get out of school ten minutes early so that they wouldn’t beat me up, because they would threaten to. I once went out to play, sort of thing, with someone who I thought was my friend, and it ended up being a bit of trap, and there were six girls there. I ran away and I knocked on this old woman’s bungalow and she drove me home because I was so scared”.

However, when Scarlett came face to face with the bully ten years later, she refused to back down again and instead, stood up to her. 

“I was in Asda, I was walking around, and I saw this girl, and I hadn’t seen her in about ten years. All of a sudden, all the feelings I’d had of fear resurfaced, and I was like, ‘Why am I still scared of her?’. So I was avoiding her in the aisles, and then I thought, ‘No Scarlett, stop this now, you’re better than that”, she explained. 

“So I walked about, not expecting her in a million years to speak to me and she was like, “Ah, Scarlett, how are you?” and I was like, “I’m good, how are you?” and she said, “My kids think I’m really cool because I’m friends with you”, Scarlett continued.

The conversation ended with Scarlett standing up to her high school bully by telling her that “we were never friends. I had to move schools because of you and your girl gang, because you were just awful to me. How dare you say that. I hope that your kids never meet anyone who’s like you were at school”. 

Good on you for standing up to the bullies, Scarlett!
