The presenter preaches a message of body positivity in her post on social media, slamming Instagram culture for promoting impossible standards of perfection.

She started out as a normal girl on Gogglebox, but soon became the nation's sweetheart with her quick wit and sharp sense of humour.

Scarlett Moffatt is one of us, she's relatable and completely lovable. So it makes sense that the 28-year-old Geordie is now using her platform to promote body confidence by admitting to her own insecurities. In her latest Instagram post, she goes make-up free in a bikini and voices her own thoughts on body image.

"I stare at these amazingly stunning woman on Instagram and think oh no I have wobbly bits here there and everywhere compared to them."

Scarlett goes on to discuss why she nearly didn't post the photo, criticising herself and her body by picking up on her personal insecurities like her arms and boobs.

"So I’ve uploaded this photo as when I first looked at it I instantly said oh Scarlett delete this photo your arm looks weird it’s not toned at all & it’s hanging over your swimsuit, my boobs have been defeated by gravity and aren’t where society or the trolls persistently say they should be and my skin is far from perfect."

But the final message of the post is undoubtedly one of self love and positivity, as Scarlett finishes off:

"Ladies please look at yourselves and love yourself, realise that no one is truly perfect and you don’t need to look perfect in order to live your best life. As Dr Seuss said “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You!”"
