And while speaking during a body confidence seminar at the Glamour Beauty Festival with her little sister Ava, the 27-year-old has now opened up once again about her image battle.


After losing three stone back in 2016, the former I’m A Celebrity winner admitted she was left feeling ‘miserable’ and felt pressure to ‘look a certain way.’

Scarlett said: ‘When I first came out of the jungle I went through a stage where I felt like I had to try and look a certain way.’

The telly star then told the audience. ‘I wanted to try and get out of the stereotypical Geordie girl. I stopped wearing fake tan and wore WAG dresses.

‘But I was really miserable. I like being orange and having eyelashes that go up to my forehead.’

This comes after it was reported Scar was left ‘in tears’ while attending a Swiss boot camp two years ago in order to get in shape.

According to reports, the Saturday Night Takeaway presenter was made to exercise for six hours a day and given a maximum of 700 calories.

The Sun claims Scarlett sent one text to her pal during her time at the camp which read: ‘It’s so hard losing weight anyway without this pressure of having to persuade people you’re doing everything they’re telling you even though I know it’s bad on my body only eating like 600/700 calories a day (crying emoji).’

A spokesperson for Scarlett reportedly told the publication: ‘She did go to a boot camp and it was a horrid experience.

‘She had to weigh herself every day and was put on a very low-calorie diet — but she categorically did not take any pills.’
