Scar­lett Mof­fatt faced a spec­tac­u­lar back­lash when it was re­vealed that, while train­ing for her best­selling Su­perSlim Me Plan DVD, she had gone to a gru­elling boot camp

in Switzer­land. There, she lim­ited her­self to 700 calo­ries a day and un­der­went daily work­outs that in­cluded run­ning up hills (gasp).

The news did not go down well with many of the fans who’d bought her fit­ness DVD, which sug­gested that a diet of 1,200 calo­ries and fol­low­ing the ex­er­cise plan she ad­vised could de­liver the re­sults she was proudly dis­play­ing.

‘OMG, lis­ten to @Scar­let­tMof­fatt? Lots of young peo­ple lis­tened to her about her “DVD”, now it turns out she lied about los­ing the weight!’ tweeted one.

Scar­lett went from a size 18 to a size 8 in 2016, los­ing 3st over six months. How­ever, more re­cently, the 27-year-old for­mer Gog­gle­boxer, who has de­scribed her­self as ‘the av­er­age north­ern lass who likes a chip-shop din­ner’, has def­i­nitely re­gained some of her curves.

In Florida re­cently, to film the fi­nale of Satur­day Night Take­away, she was pic­tured with boyfriend Lee Wilkin­son look­ing closer to a curvy size 14-16 than the svelte sil­hou­ette shown on the cover of her Su­perSlim Me Plan DVD. Let’s hope other stars learn the les­son – and avoid the temp­ta­tion to sell the view­ing pub­lic false hope.
