‘I don’t know if it’s my accent!’: Scarlett Moffatt claims people ‘always assume she’s thick’ because she’s a northerner
She’s been a regular face on TV since entertaining the nation with her hilarious comments on Gogglebox.
And Scarlett Moffatt, 29, has now revealed that she believes she is often stereotyped and mistaken for being ‘thick’.
Scarlett told The Mirror: ‘I just can’t win. Maybe it’s the way I’ve portrayed myself, but people always assume I’m thick. I don’t know if it’s my accent or whatever.’

The media personality went on to explain how while working she was once told how to do something three times by a producer.
Although not revealing which job she was doing at the time, Scarlett explained how she had to keep replying that she understood what was being asked of her.
Scarlett said: ‘You can’t win, so you’ve just got to be yourself and not take anything personally. It’s other people’s ignorance and them being uneducated, not you.’
The beauty, who was born in Bishop Auckland in County Durham, shot to fame on Gogglebox and went on to win I’m A Celebrity in 2016.

Scarlett’s comments come after she threw her mother Betty a fabulous 50th birthday celebration complete with a pop-up pub and silent disco.
With coronavirus restrictions still in place, only 30 people could come to the party but Scarlett along with her father Mark and sister Ava, 14, made the most of the day.
