Scarlett Moffatt jokes she's forgotten her name as she feels the pressure on Celebrity Mastermind

GOGGLEBOX star Scarlett Moffatt got so flustered on Celebrity Mastermind, she forgot her own name.

The 30-year-old presenter sat down opposite host John Humphrys who asked her, "what is your name?".

"I don't remember!" she nervously admitted before blurting out her job before John had even had the chance to ask her.

When John pointed out Scarlett had faced much more gruelling tasks in the Australian jungle on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, she said "yeah this is scarier though!".

Scarlett added: "I would rather eat a kangaroo testicle!"

She eventually settled into the show and admitted she thought people underestimated her because of her Durham accent.



"People think you're a bit stupid, but hopefully I will prove them wrong.

"I know I am last place at the moment, but…"

Keeping her trademark sense of humour, Scarlett threw back to a moment on Celebrity Mastermind that went viral.

Earlier this year a baffled contestant called Amanda could not remember the name of teen climate activist Great Thunberg.

"Sharon?" Amanda offered in a clip that quickly made the rounds online.

Scarlett thought she'd relive the hilarious moment when she was asked: "Which tennis player who won the Wimbledon Women's Single's title nine times married her partner Yulia Lemigova, a former Miss USSR, in New York in 2014?"

"Sharon?" Scarlett jokingly replied.

John curtly gave her the right answer: "Martina Navratilova".

Scarlett also recently kept her fans in hysterics after admitting she mainly ate chocolate this week.

The former Gogglebox star joked: "All I've really eaten today is Miniature Heroes and Roses.

"But I have been eating the strawberry Roses and the orange ones, so I have been getting my five-a-day."

Earlier in the day, which Scarlett dubbed as 'The Boxing Day of Boxing Day', she told her two million Instagram followers that she has been eating nonstop.

The star said: "I'm tell you one thing I'm actually looking forward to – not eating as much.

"And I never thought I'd say that, but I don't know if it's because of lockdown or whatever it is, but I just feel like all I've done is eat."

Scarlett's weight has yo-yoed over the years.

But in 2017, she plummeted from 11st 5lbs to 8st and swapped a dress size 18 for an 8. Scarlett had followed a strict 700-calorie-a-day diet to achieve the loss for a fitness DVD.

Earlier this year, she admitted on Frankie Bridge's Open Mind Podcast that she wanted to put on weight after the DVD was released because the diet was "detrimental" to her mental health.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, Scarlett shared a throwback photo of herself as she tried on a black swimsuit.

Scarlett posted the snap in response to a request to see a picture taken 'when people didn't know she was at her lowest'.
