Scarlett Sigourney Moffatt (born 17 October 1990)[1] is an English television personality and presenter from County Durham, best known for appearing in the Channel 4 programme Gogglebox. She won the sixteenth series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2016,[2] and has since appeared in a number of programmes, including the I'm a Celebrity companion show Extra Camp as a co-presenter, and Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

Most recently she has appeared in a Channel 4 documentary The British Tribe Next Door, alongside her family in a four part series living within a remote Namibian village.

Scarlett's parents chose her name over a game of Scrabble. Her mother won the game, and got to choose the first name, after a character in Gone With the Wind. Her middle name (Sigourney), chosen by her father, is after actress Sigourney Weaver.

Career[edit]

On 24 September 2013, it was confirmed that Moffatt would be appearing in MTV's new series Beauty School Cop Outs, which follows British and Irish youngsters as they move to a beauty school in Manchester to learn the tricks of the trade.[3]

In 2014, Moffatt became a regular cast member on the Channel 4 reality TV show Gogglebox alongside her parents Mark and Betty, making their debut in the third series in March 2014. Scarlett's younger sister Ava-Grace joined the family on the sofa during the seventh series; her then boyfriend Luke Crodden first appeared in the eighth series. Her relationship with Luke ended in March 2017. Moffatt has not appeared in Gogglebox since her appearance in I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here![4]

On 30 November 2015 she joined the presenting team for Capital Breakfast on Capital North East.[5]

On 8 November 2016, it was confirmed that Moffatt would be participating in the sixteenth series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here![6]

After winning I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! she began appearing as a panellist on Virtually Famous in December 2016. On 8 January 2017, it was announced that Channel 4 would be reviving dating show Streetmate with Moffatt as the presenter. "I can't believe Channel 4 have asked me to present this iconic show. I remember watching Davina McCall on Streetmate when I was younger and thinking, 'Females can present entertainment shows too. I want to do that when I'm older. It's such a fun show and it's two of my favourite things to do, chat to randomers and a love story."[7] In January 2017, she was the backstage presenter for the National Television Awards.[8]

On 9 January 2017, it was announced that Moffatt would be joining Ant & Dec on Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. "I've watched Saturday Night Takeaway with my family for as long as I can remember, I'm such a huge fan, so to be part of one of the biggest entertainment shows out there, with two of my all-time TV heroes Ant and Dec, is an absolute dream." Moffatt said in a statement. On 19 November 2019 Scarlett Moffatt was dropped from her role as co-presenter on Saturday Night Takeaway.[9]

On 2 April 2018, Moffatt guest hosted an evening radio show on Heart, as part of Heart's Feel Good Easter Weekend.[10]

Personal life[edit]

Before finding fame, Moffatt worked as a checkout operator for Asda in her home town of Bishop Auckland. She is also an ex-ballroom and Latin dancer, and has danced in local, regional and national competitions. She studied sport at York St John University. During her tenure on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, she revealed that she suffers from Bell's palsy after being run over by a car when she was 11.[11]
