They only rekin­dled their ro­mance four months ago, but Scar­lett Mof­fatt and Luke Crod­den’s re­la­tion­ship ap­pears to have hit the rocks again.

Last week, re­ports sur­faced that they’d split, af­ter the TV pre­sen­ter and Luke un­fol­lowed each other on so­cial me­dia. But de­spite Scar­lett’s spokesper­son deny­ing the claims, in­sid­ers say she’s ner­vous their re­la­tion­ship won’t sur­vive the next few months, as she fo­cuses on work and main­tain­ing her weight.

Since win­ning I’m A Celeb! last year, Scar­lett, 26, who rose to fame on Chan­nel 4’s Gog­gle­box, has es­tab­lished a lu­cra­tive ca­reer. She shed 3st and re­leased a fit­ness DVD, landed her first pre­sent­ing role on the re­make of the TV dat­ing show Street­mate, and her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy is due for re­lease later this month. She is also head­ing to Aus­tralia in Novem­ber to host the I’m A Celeb! spin-off show, Ex­tra Camp with Joe Swash.

A source says, “Scar­lett’s ca­reer is go­ing strong, and she’s feel­ing a lot of pres­sure to make sure ev­ery­thing she turns her hand to is a suc­cess. She is liv­ing her dream right now, but that comes with a hec­tic sched­ule.

“It’s also been tak­ing its toll on her re­la­tion­ship with Luke, and she’s wor­ried about how it will af­fect them. When she’s work­ing on I’m A Celeb, they’ll be on op­po­site sides of the world and she won’t be able to ded­i­cate the time to him that she’d like to.”


The pair split in Fe­bru­ary and Scar­lett’s in­creased work­load was widely be­lieved to be the rea­son, with in­sid­ers say­ing at the time that hair­dresser Luke had strug­gled to cope with her suc­cess. How­ever, they re­united in June.

Now friends say Scar­lett is wor­ried his­tory could be re­peat­ing it­self and is un­sure if her re­la­tion­ship with Luke will with­stand the strain of her busy work sched­ule.

The source says, “Scar­lett wants to make the most of her suc­cess and doesn’t feel she can turn down any of­fers of work. Right now, it feels like her life is a jug­gling act and she doesn’t know how to keep ev­ery­one happy. She’s scared she’ll lose ev­ery­thing by spread­ing her­self too thinly.”

Last year, Scar­lett showed off her dra­matic 3st weight loss, re­veal­ing she had gone from a size 18 to an 8 by ditch­ing junk food and em­bark­ing on a high­in­ten­sity ex­er­cise pro­gramme.

How­ever, in re­cent months, she ap­pears to have put some of the weight back on, shar­ing pic­tures of her curvier fig­ure on so­cial me­dia.

As Closer re­ported ear­lier this year, the hours Scar­lett spent in the gym put a strain on her ro­mance with Luke, with friends re­veal­ing at the time that her in­creased con­fi­dence made him feel like she was drift­ing away from him.

Now in­sid­ers have dis­closed that the New­cas­tle-born star is feel­ing pres­sure to keep the weight off, but doesn’t want it to add more strain to her al­ready frac­tured re­la­tion­ship.


The source says, “All Scar­lett wants to do is chill out at home, eat­ing takeaways in front of the TV with Luke, but she feels she can’t do that if she wants to be in her best shape for work. Rather than re­lax­ing, she is wor­ry­ing about fit­ting in gym ses­sions and mak­ing time to cook meals from scratch, which means she has less time to spend with Luke.”

Be­fore split­ting the first time, Scar­lett made it known that she and Luke had al­ready spo­ken about mar­riage and chil­dren, even ad­mit­ting that they wanted to call their first daugh­ter Aurora.

And friends say she hasn’t given up on her dream of a life with Luke. “Scar­lett be­lieves he is The One,” says a source. “She knows the next few months will be tough but be­lieves that, if they can get through it, they’ll be more solid than ever.”
