SCARLETT Moffatt has revealed she shamed her childhood bully when they came face to face in Asda for the first time in ten years.
The 27-year-old, who is now a very successful TV presenter, suffered at the hands of bullies for many years while at school – but it seems one of her tormentors decided to rewrite history when they met years later.
Speaking about her bullying ordeal on today’s This Morning, Scarlett told Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes that she had a brave moment.
She explained: “I was in Asda and I see this girl I hadn’t seen in ten years and all of a sudden all the feelings of fear came back.”
At first Scarlett, who has just been announced as a presenter on I’m A Celeb Extra Camp, tried to avoid her but then plucked up the courage to walk towards her – but she was shocked at what happened next.
“I walked up and she was like ‘Oh hi Scarlett. My children think I am really cool because I am friends with you’”.
Furious that she was suggesting they were friends, she told the girl: “We were never friends. I had to move school because of you and your girl gang.
“I said I hope your kids never meet any one like you at school.”
Scarlett then admitted she had a ‘mic drop’ moment, saying: “I dropped my basket and walked out.”
Opening up about her tough time at school, she said she thinks the bullying made her stronger.
When quizzed if it made her how she is today, she replied: “I think so because I know now to never make anyone else feel that way.
“My dad always said that bullies are like sandpaper because the more they wear you down they make you polished.”
Discussing why she might have been a target, Scarlett shared: “When I was 11 I was in a bike accident and I smashed my front teeth and then I got bell’s palsy [which causes temporary muscle paralysis] and I think I was an easy target.”
On a happier note, Scarlett said she was “very excited” about her upcoming stint on I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp.
