Despite being unlucky in love in the past, Scarlett Moffatt is said to be “smitten” with her new boyfriend, policeman Scott Dobinson

Speaking on Lorraine this morning, Scarlett Moffatt blushed through questions about her new beau – who she said her family approve of.

"It’s so embarrassing! He is very lovely. He’s got a proper job. My mum is so happy!" she gushed.

"I keep saying to people: 'He’s so normal!' and everyone says that’s not a good descriptive word, but it is for me. My mum is ecstatic that I’m with a normal person.

"He’s a policeman, he’s got a really nice family. He’s just a nice person.

"There’s no drama as well. It’s not like sometimes where you have a boyfriend and you go on a night out and come back with loads of stories. We just go out and have a nice time and then go back and watch the telly."

She definitely deserves her happily ever after – as well as being a bona fide mega babe, she's HILARIOUS to boot.

Scarlett Moffatt's battle with body shamers

Behind her perky personality, Scarlett revealed that she suffered as a result of online bullies. Although Gogglebox has helped catapult her extremely 'normal' life into the public eye, fame has definitely had 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.

Yet more body shamers

Even after getting into shape, Scarlett was the target of online vitriol when she was body shamed yet again – this time for being 'too thin'. You just can't win with some people!She previously opened up to The Sun about the bullying she experienced as a child, which was so bad that the school let her leave ten minutes before anyone else. She said: "From aged 12 I just didn't like life. I didn't have the best time, really."But if I hadn't had those experiences at school, then I probably wouldn't be here. If I had just tried to fit in, I wouldn't be the weirdo that I am now."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 Katie Hopkins and Kelvin Mackenzie who have made endless cruel jokes about her weight.
