Scarlett Moffatt's parents have defended their daughter from claims of bullying on I'm A Celebrity 2016.

One of the favourites to win, Scarlett has also been attacked by some viewers who have accused her of acting like a bully.

There were clashes in camp between Scarlett and Martin Roberts that particularly caused controversy.

But mum and dad Elisabeth and Mark say Scarlett would be "mortified" by the claims made about her behaviour.

"As someone who has been bullied herself when she was younger I think she would be absolutely mortified if she thought people were saying she was a bully," Scarlett's mum said to The Sun newspaper. "That really isn’t the sort of person she is.

"When she comes out I think she’ll be really upset by that and will feel really bad about it."

Writing on Facebook, Scarlett's mum also slammed haters who had branded her daughter "thick or stupid".

“Scarlett does say daft stuff and lacks common sense but she’s not someone to tear other people down," she posted. “It’s Scarlett’s choice what she wants to do with her life, but she’s not hurting anybody.

"If calling my daughter thick or stupid or anything else makes you feel better than crack on.”

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues tonight at 9PM on ITV.
