With reports of a rift between the Gogglebox families and Scarlett over wages and 'VIP treatment', Channel 4 have hit back...
It’s no secret that Scarlett Moffatt is one of the most well-known faces of Channel 4’s Gogglebox.
And now that she’s about to enter the I’m A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here jungle, her popularity is only going to soar.
But despite being one of THE nicest reality stars on TV, new reports are claiming that Scarlett has been rubbing the rest of the Gogglebox stars up the wrong way.
‘The cast aren’t happy that Scarlett’s getting preferential treatment’, a source told The Sun.
‘Since day one of the show, all the families have been allowed to do minimal media appearances and interviews to remain as relatable as possible – which is why you rarely read about the other families’, it added.
As a result, some of the other Gogglebox families reportedly don’t think it’s fair that Scar has her own book, fitness DVD and management, with Channel 4 bosses reportedly pandering to her ‘to keep her happy’. They’re also said to be unhappy about wages.
‘The part some of the cast find most frustrating is the fact Scarlett’s become the face of the show despite only joining in series three. Now she’s treated like a VIP’, the insider added.
However, Channel 4 have hit back against the allegations, and have firmly stated that the ill-feeling towards Scarlett is totally untrue.
‘All cast are thrilled for Scarlett and wish her all the best in the Jungle’, a rep told The Sun. ‘It is untrue that there is disharmony within the cast about fees’.
Meanwhile, Scarlett has kept schtum on the rumours (well, she is in the Jungle and all…), with boyfriend Luke Crodden taking over her Instagram account whilst she’s away.
‘It’s official she couldn’t stand my cooking anymore so gone to eat spiders instead. So excited to watch her and I know how much all of your support will mean to her’, he wrote in one seriously cute post this week.
Bring on the Jungle!
