Scarlett Moffatt might be feeling on top of the world after being crowned queen of the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ jungle, but she’s revealed life wasn’t always so rosy.

The ‘Gogglebox’ star has opened up about her teenage years, when she suffered at the hands of bullies at school.

In fact it got so bad, that Scarlett was allowed to leave school ten minutes early each day to avoid being beaten up.


Scarlett was eventually forced to move schools in Bishops Auckland, Co Durham, and now says she isn’t impressed with how her teachers dealt with the problem.


The 26-year-old says she was picked on because of the way she looked, after she was left with a drooping face caused by Bell’s Palsy.


Scarlett, who was working as a student disability adviser a year ago, is set to pocket £1million in endorsements and TV deals after being crowned Queen of the Jungle.

First up will be the release of her slimming DVD, ‘Scarlett’s Superslim Me Plan’, which is due to hit the shelves on Boxing Day, and is expected to be one of the year’s biggest sellers.

Scarlett, who already presents her own show on Capital Radio in the North East, is also reportedly at the centre of a bidding war between ITV and Channel 4, who are both keen to sign her up.
