Scarlett Moffatt praised as she urges fans to love themselves in powerful post

Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has been applauded by fans after she encouraged them to love their bodies, no matter their size.

The reality star, 31, who previously admitted that her fitness DVD was the “biggest regret” of her career, recently hit out at a chart measuring body shapes and telling people how to dress.

Sharing an image of the chart online, the photo showed a number of diagrams of different body shapes alongside names such as "lean column", "pear" and "full hourglass."

Beneath each drawing there would typically have been a list of clothing tips and tricks designed to identify what best "suits" a body type, yet under each drawing in Scarlett’s photo there was just one message: "Dress how you like. It's your body."

Scarlett captioned the powerful image with: "How to dress for your body shape and size #loveyourself."

The TV star's 2.2million followers were quick to flood the comment section with messages of support, with many praising Scarlett for speaking out about the issue.

One wrote: "I literally tried to find my shape and read up on it, then I realised it all said the same. It made me feel so much better. Thank you for this."

Another added: "I was about to launch into a rant when I saw the pics then read the descriptions! Absa-f******-lutley!"

"You are so right!" a third replied along with a kissing emoji.

"Thank you Scarlett, you have made my day xx" another user chimed.

It comes after Scarlett admitted that the "biggest regret" of her life was doing her own fitness DVD.

In 2018, the former Gogglebox star released a workout DVD after shedding three stone and dropping from a size 18 to a size 8 by following a gruelling 700 calorie-per-day diet.

However, it quickly emerged that the reality star was only consuming 300 calories per day and attended a training BootCamp secretly.

Reflecting on that period of her life, the star said on the BoobShare podcast: "Something I don't talk about ever is an ad on a fitness DVD, which I always say is like, my biggest regret."

Scarlett explained: "What people need to understand is, I was so young, like I was in my early 20s. I was working in an office, I was very new to this [celebrity] industry.

"I had no representation, and it seemed like a good thing at the time. And I feel like I'm always penalised for that.

"And it's really upsetting because that's just such a small part of my life and a mistake that I made. But I seem to still be getting sh*t for it."
