Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has opened up about the moment she decided to slim down from a size 18 to an 8.

The reality tv personality (26), who was recently crowned Queen of the Jungle on I'm A Celeb, has been documenting her nearly three stone weight loss over the course of the last four months.

And while she hasn't been shy about sharing her fitness journey (she's currently promoting her weight loss DVD), she said it was a health scare that sent her on the straight and narrow with diet and exercise.

"I went to the doctor's because I was feeling really lethargic and had really bad migraines and a bad back," she told OK Magazine.

"When I stepped on the scales they said it’s to do with your weight.  I said, oh God, I’m not overweight, am I?”

"They were like, no, you’re obese. That was when I was like, 'Scarlett, it’s your health now.'"

Last month, she credited boyfriend Luke Crodden for encouraging her to shed the pounds in a bid to get healthy.

"I must admit, I was a proper exercise avoider, which is weird for me, because up until five years ago I was a keen ballroom dancer and was really into fitness," she told the Daily Express.

"But as soon as I stopped I just piled the weight back on, and to be honest I was in denial about the changes my body had [gone] through. I couldn't face up to my weight either, so when I did, it was a bit emotional."
