Scarlett Moffatt: Everything you need to know about her amazing weight loss

“Honestly if a professional couch potato can do it, anybody can!”

Scarlett Moffatt, known for being one of Gogglebox's biggest personalities, is definitely one of our favourite people on TV.

Seriously. We're not just saying it; she's flawless.

From her hilarious quick wit, sassy put downs and the way she strongly voices her opinions on anything from #Brexit to The X Factor - Scarlett's never afraid to say it how it is. And she's pretty beautiful, too.

Recently, Scarlett decided to overhaul her lifestyle and set herself a weight loss goal. Here's everything you need to know about her game-changing weight loss, in which she went from a size 16 to a 10...

Scarlett Moffatt’s battle with body shamers

Behind her perky persona, Scarlett has revealed that she has suffered as a result of online bullies. Although Gogglebox has helped catapult her extremely 'normal' life into the public eye, fame definitely has its downsides, something that Scarlett has experienced first hand.

Mostly targeting her weight (and her tan), Scarlett has admitted that the constant trolling on social media has definitely taken its toll.

She told the Belfast Telegraph: "People have said, ‘You’re that fat you should just go and die.'

“There are odd ones, mostly men, who criticise me about my weight and size and say I’m ugly. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t hurt sometimes."

Scarlett also admitted that she gets more distressed by how the vile comments affect her parents, Mark and Betty, who also appear on the show - especially as she was also viciously bullied as a young child.

“My mum’s cried about stuff she’s read about me, so I end up putting on a brave face because I don’t want her to be upset,” she said.

Despite losing weight, Scarlett has always championed positive body image and is a firm believer in the saying 'if you haven't got anything nice to say, don't say it at all.'

She's famously hit back at The Sun columnists Katie Hopkins and Kelvin Mackenzie who have made endless cruel jokes about her weight.

Scarlett Moffatt's health scare

Earlier this year, Scarlett opened up about a recent health scare that triggered the start of her weight loss journey.

After a trip to the doctors which left Scarlett shocked when she was told she was clinically obese and at risk of type 2 diabetes, she told Closer:

"I knew I was overweight but when I went to the doctor for a check up, she said, 'You're not overweight, you're obese'."

She added that the shock gave her the "rocket up her bum" that she needed.

How did Scarlett Moffatt start her weight loss journey?

Scarlett decided to take things slow and steady when it came to her approach to losing weight. Given that she used to train as a ballroom dancer, Scarlett decided to reignite her regular excercise routine, which she had given up when she went to university.

""It was really intense training but... I stopped when I was a student and discovered alcohol and kebabs, and I've never found any exercise to replace it."

The 25-year-old also admitted that she was just going to cut back on eating all the 'wrong things' all the time.

Atta girl!

Scarlet's weight loss diet

There wasn't one! Yep, Scarlett simply changed her outlook towards food. She explained to new! magazine that the high intensity work outs meant she couldn't really cut down on calories:

"I've just started exercising quite a bit actually. I’d say I do HIT [High Intensity Training] about three times a week."

Yup, the classic combo of a healthy diet and a decent amount of exercise. - it really is that simple!

Scarlett Moffatt’s yummy boyfriend

Personal trainer/sales advisor Luke Crodden, Scarlett's super yummy and incredibly romantic boyfriend, has been on hand to guide her through her weight loss.

Admitting that sticking to it could be pretty tricky at times, Scarlett revealed that Luke was always there to help her get back on track.

"Luke is so encouraging," she told Closer.

"He says whatever I choose to do, he'll do it with me and it will be great to have his support."

Contender for the fittest couple of 2016? We'd definitely say so.

Scarlett Moffatt and I’m A Celebrity

After recently 'crying like a baby' when finding out she had lost two stone over the past year - Scarlett is now ready for anything.

From lucrative fitness DVD deals to a stint in the jungle, Scarlett is set to become bigger than ever, proving every single one of her haters wrong.

After rumours that she's heading into the I'm A Celebrity Jungle later this year, insiders say Scarlett can't wait to get into a bikini on the show.

A source told Closer: "Scarlett loves showing off her figure now – she's bought a whole new wardrobe and now she can't wait to strip off in the jungle.

"She's told friends how she would have been self-conscious before losing the weight but now she feels back to her old self.

"She definitely wants to be known as one of the sexiest contestants on I'm A Celeb – she's joked about giving the other girls a run for their money."

Scarlett Moffat weight-loss DVD

She's only gone and released her very own work-out DVD, helping so many others achieve what she has - what a woman!

After getting into shape Scarlett was then body shamed for being 'too skinny' but now the 26-year-old has released a short snippet from her new fitness DVD.

The footage shows Scarlett weighing herself for the first time [last year] at her heaviest.

She says: "Last time I worked out I was 8st 7lbs but I think that dream has long gone.

"Right, I think it's going to be I'm going to say 9 and a half stone but I know it isn't but I'm saying that to be nice to myself."

After weighing herself and discovering that she weighed 11st 4lbs she couldn't believe it: "Oh my god. That cannot be right. I don't even want to say that I'm embarrassed.

She then broke down in tears: "I can't believe that I've got to that weight. But it's not going to get any more which is the good thing, it can only go down.

"That needs to change now, that's not healthy I'm only 25 and I'm 5ft.

"I've just got to work hard."
