In one of the most puzzling celebrity feuds of recent times, ‘I’m A Celebrity’ campmate Scarlett Moffatt has launched a blistering attack on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ presenter Tess Daly.

Scarlett, of course, is no stranger to sharing her opinions on TV - she does it every week on ‘Gogglebox’ after all - but she’s taken things one step further with her latest scathing remarks.

In a recent interview with Heat magazine, prior to going into the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ jungle, Scarlett admitted she was no fan of Tess’s presenting style, claiming she “sucks the excitement out of everything”.

She told the magazine (via The Sun): “She’s like an eight-year-old boy’s idea of how to draw of a pretty lady. She’d be a blonde lady with boobies and a face.

“Tess totally ruins ‘Strictly’ for me. I have to record it, so I can fast-forward through her.”

Tess isn’t the only star that Scarlett is gunning for, though, as she added: There are only two people I really dislike: Tess Daly and Jamie Oliver. They might really dislike me, too, but I’m not arsed, I’m not arsed at all.”

So far, Scarlett is doing a great job in the jungle, triumphing in her first Bushtucker Trial alongside Carol Vorderman, and is currently the bookies’ favourite to win the whole show.

It was recently revealed she will be returning to ‘Gogglebox’ in 2017, despite initial reports suggesting bosses didn’t want their stars to pursue TV projects away from the show.

‘I’m A Celebrity’ continues on Thursday (24 November) at 9pm on ITV.
