After Scarlett Moffatt was accused of lying about how she shed three stone in weight back in 2016, comments have emerged where she claimed to be 'miserable' being a slim size eight.
The 26-year-old I'm A Celeb star has endured a barrage of abuse from trolls online after a newspaper expose suggested she had lied about the way she lost an incredible 10 dress sizes two years ago.
Speaking at a body confidence seminar, Scarlett admitted she struggled with her 'new look.'
"Being in the public eye. 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. I wanted to try and get out of the stereotypical Geordie girl," she said.

Scarlett released Scarlett's Super Slim Me Plan fitness DVD on 26 December 2016
Scarlett Moffatt stunned fans when she went from a size 18 to a size 8
An expose by t he paper claimed Scarlett had lied about the way she lost an incredible 10 dress sizes two years ago.
The 27-year-old TV star credited the tips she shared on her fitness DVD, Scarlett’s SuperSlim Me Plan, with her dramatic transformation.
Scarlett claimed to have plunged from a size 18 to a size 8 by restricting herself to a 1,200 calorie-per-day diet and rigorous exercise.
However, The Sun on Sunday is now claiming she attended a brutal fitness camp in Switzerland where she would work out for six hours per day and ate just 700 calories per day to achieve her slimline eight stone figure.
It is also claimed she could be made to pay back £100,000 from her DVD deal due to a clause that stipulated she needed to maintain her slimmer figure for a full year upon the release of the DVD.
The star has regained some of her weight since the DVD was released
“The DVD is a sham really. There is no mention of the boot camp where she was climbing mountains and exercising for six hours a day,” a source told The Sun on Sunday.
“Scarlett is one of the most popular young women on TV — a real girl-next-door figure. The DVD gave fans an unrealistic portrayal of how she lost weight,” the source continued.
“She was really struggling and finding it hard to cope. She was on a starvation diet, exercising way too hard and not eating enough. She was being pushed to breaking point,” the source added.
The Sun on Sunday also claims to have seen text messages sent by Scarlett to a friend where she allegedly complains about feeling “pressure” to lose weight, that she felt she was exercising “too hard” and struggling to cope with a restricted diet of “600/700 calories”.
An expose by The Sun on Sunday claims Scarlett lied about how she lost weight - and fans are livid
ScarMo, famous for watching television and casting her insights and opinions on popular Channel 4 show Gogglebox, capitalised on her “couch potato” persona to attract fans to her DVD.
"If I can do it — a professional couch potato — then you can too. With the help of . . . this cunning plan,” she boasted at the time.
Fans of the reality star have been left reeling by the expose and have turned against the star.
"This is why I can’t stand so called celebrities like Scarlett Moffatt she lied to so many young and impressionable people, then moans when the papers print the real her!” one angry fan raged on Twitter.
Others have criticised Scarlett for allegedly filtering her social media images - with photos posted by her online appearing ‘different’ to how she looks on television show Saturday Night Takeaway.
"Yes another fake as f**k photo! You looked nothing like that on last nights show! Be proud of who you are & stop filtering your photos!” one despairing fan tweeted after Scarlett shared a selfie of her weekend TV show look.
A spokesperson for Scarlett confirmed to The Sun that she had attended a boot camp, stating: “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 [diet] pills.’’
