It’s not been the best of weeks the last couple of weeks for Scarlett Moffatt after it was revealed that her fitness DVD was a scam after she went to a fitness camp where she lost all the weight and not the DVD.
Then on Monday of this week the news broke that Saturday Night Takeaway wasn’t going to air after host Ant McPartlin crashed his car after he tested positive for alcohol in his body while he drove.
A close friend to Scarlett has said to Closer magazine:
“This has probably been the worst week of Scarlett’s life. Ever since she won [I’m A Celeb], she felt unstoppable. She had to pinch herself over how lucky she was. Now she feels her honest, girl-next-door, friendly character has been trampled on,”
“She knows her career is built on being relatable, and she’s wanted to be a positive role model for young women – but now feels everyone thinks she’s a liar,”
It’s been announced via The Sun on Monday night that Ant McPartlin will not be presenting I’m A Celebrity…. Get Me Out Of Here and Britain’s Got Talent along with Saturday Night Takeaway.
Throughout today fans have been sharing their concerns on social media and asking if he will be on I’m A Celebrity and BGT but The Sun have now said that it’s looking like he will be off for the rest of the year.
Ant booked himself into rehab on Monday morning after spending most of the night in police custody.
A friend of Ant has said to The Sun:
“It’s a real mess — it’s just a nightmare situation. He needs an extended break from professional work.
“But Ant can no longer hide from his problems.
“This is a straightforward case of him needing to go away and take as much time as possible. We don’t know what form his treatment will take or how long exactly he will be gone, but it is expected to be for the rest of this year.”
