It was just over a year ago that Scarlett Moffatt recalled becoming emotional after finding the body confidence to slip on a bikini for the first time in five years. The TV star, 31, has now shared a similarly empowering message from her summer holiday.

Scarlett - who is believed to be on a trip to Marbella with her boyfriend Scott Dobinson - revealed on Instagram that she wanted to celebrate her 'boob gap'. She posted a video of herself in a sunny location holding a pack of crisps and a fizzy drink - while miming the words: 'This is perfect. Perfect, perfect, perfect.'

Captioning the clip, the presenter wrote: 'Fanta Lemon, Cheetos & sunshine… PERFECT!! Also don’t forget normalising the old boob gap.' The positive message was well-received by social media users, who left more than 18,000 'likes'.

One fan wrote, 'you are my inspiration', while another commented, 'beautiul girl'. A third shared, 'looking fabulous, enjoy!' and fourth added, 'you look amazing, thanks for helping me with my body confidence'.

It comes after Scarlett - who rose to fame on Gogglebox before winning I'm A Celebrity in 2016 - shared a similarly powerful message with her two million followers last August. She posted a picture to Instagram of herself in swimwear and explained why the moment had left her with happy tears.

The star wrote: 'This shouldn’t be a big deal but it is and I’m actually crying whilst writing this. It’s [taken] me so many years to gain confidence with my body. I’ve let it down at times and missed out on holidays and nights out because I’ve not liked what I’ve seen in the mirror. But hey after five years of not daring to wear a bikini I’m actually doing it.'

Her stunning picture has since received more than 230,000 'likes', with many fans praising how 'brave' she had been. It followed the release of her infamous 2018 weight loss DVD in which it was claimed she had lost three stone through diet and exercise. In July, she told The Sun's Fabulous magazine that she was far 'happier' as a size 18 then when she had been a size 8.

And we're all for what leaves you feeling your best, Scarlett!
