I'm A Celebrity 2016: Scarlet Moffatt in shock off camera 'breakdown'


I'm A Celebrity's Scarlet Moffatt had a major off camera breakdown on the show, it's been revealed.

Ant and Dec have spilled how the Gogglebox star was "crying her eyes out" during the first trial of this year's series.

Scarlett, Sam Quek, Ola Jordan and Jordan Banjo all took part in the task, which involved being burred underground while covered in critters.

While we did see a fearful Scarlett in tears on the show, it was even worse behind the scenes in clips cut from the nightly highlights show.

Ant revealed this week: "Scarlett was crying her eyes out before that trial.

"When Dr bob gave her the goggles, she said: 'What if the goggles fill all the way up with my tears?'"

And Ant added to OK! Magazine: "He had to say to her 'You won't cry enough to fill a pair of goggles'."

Scarlett did eventually complete the trial, winning all the stars for the camp.

One of the favourites to win, Scarlett has been ruled out of a number of subsequent tasks on medical grounds.

Before the jungle, Scarlett revealed how she suffers from Bell’s palsy - a condition that causes temporary paralysis of the muscles in the face - as a result of a car accident when she was aged 11.

She explained: "I can't close my left eye properly. I have to sleep with a little eye mask and my mouth still goes to the side when I talk, although people don't really notice.

"Sometimes if I'm tired, my left eye feels a little bit twitchy, but I don't get pain or slur my words. I don't feel sorry for myself, as there are so many worse afflictions people can get."

However this evening's show will see Scarlett compete for eviction immunity.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues nightly on ITV.
