Scarlett Moffatt slams Gogglebox for making her look ‘thick as s**t’ and says filming was ‘difficult’

Scarlett Moffatt has slammed Gogglebox for making her look “thick as s**t” on the show.

The 29 year old TV personality hit out at the programme which made her famous and said it was “difficult” to film.

Speaking in the debut episode of her new podcast, where she discusses conspiracy theories alongside her boyfriend Scott Dobinson, she opened up about her time on the Channel 4 reality show.

Scarlett revealed her aim for the first episode of the BBC Sounds show, called Scarlett Moffatt Wants To Believe, was to chat about “everything from aliens to the Illuminati to mermaids” during the podcast.

But, the first episode took a slightly more personal turn as she discussed her two year stint on the show, which sees viewers watch people who are watching TV. Scarlett appeared on the show alongside her parents Mark and Betty Moffatt.

Scarlett, who recently claimed she was abducted by aliens, told her boyfriend and listeners: “I was a professional couch potato, you're making it sound easy.

“It was actually very difficult. Don't take the mick. Do you know what was difficult?

“For example, you know Downton Abbey, we used to have to watch Downton Abbey, but ten minutes of it…


“I’d never watched Downton Abbey, like a full episode, and they show us ten minutes of like a man bleeding from the mouth and then I'm like, what's going on? What's happening? Who's this?”

She added: “And they only show that and it looks like I'm thick as s***, but really it's because I genuinely don't have a clue what's going on.

“I’m like, seriously who is this because I've never watched it before so actually it was very difficult.”

The star’s Gogglebox revelation isn’t the first time she lifted the lid on her TV jobs.

Scarlett, who recently said she still sends messages to Caroline Flack after her death, previously revealed she got on the programme for getting Nelson Mandela mixed up with Uncle Ben from the packet rice brand.

As she appeared on Alan Carr: Chatty Man, she explained how a producer friend of her's got in touch to see if she and her family wanted to audition for a new show.

She explained: “My friend Tommy was a researcher on Gogglebox, and he rang me and said they needed to do an audition thing and asked if we would do it.

“I said: ‘OK, whatever’ and my mum and dad were like: ‘Alright then’.“

The producers then came to the Moffatt household for the audition.

She told comedian Alan Carr: “They showed us flip cards of celebrities and for ten minutes I was talking about Uncle Ben and savoury rice when it was actually Nelson Mandela!

“Then they said they really wanted us on the show. That is bad isn't it?”
