Scarlett Moffatt reportedly ‘devastated’ that cruel gossip could destroy her career

Poor Scarlett is allegedly fed up with unfair stories

| Updated:

Scarlett Moffatt is reportedly concerned that unfair gossip about her private life could overshadow her flourishing career.

That’s according to a new report in Closer mag anyway, that alleges poor Scarlett is upset over fans suggesting she’d be a good match for her newly-single pal Ant McPartlin.

She’s also said to be frustrated over being falsely linked to another friend, Dancing On Ice contestant Kem Cetinay.

A source claimed: “Scarlett’s devastated. She’s worked hard for her dream career, but is now discovering the cruel side of fame and it’s taking its toll. She just wants people to focus on her work.

“She feels the more successful she gets, the more vicious the stories.”

The so-called insider also alleged that Scarlett is worried that constant focus on her love life and being falsely linked to different men could impact on the reputation she’s worked hard to build.

She’s a hugely in-demand TV presenter with jobs on Saturday Night Takeaway, I’m A Celebrity’s spinoff show, Extra Camp, Streetmate, This Morning and more.

Scarlett, 27, has been single since October, after splitting from her on/off boyfriend Luke Crodden.

But rather than being left alone to enjoy life as a single woman and focus on her career, fans have been match-making away. (‘Cause, female celebrities can’t just have male friends, right?)

She joined Ant & Dec on stage at the National Television Awards last week, when Saturday Night Takeaway collected the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award.

And instead of celebrating the success of Saturday Night Takeaway, some viewers chose to speculate on whether Scarlett would ever hook up with Ant in the future. He announced earlier this month that he’s divorcing wife Lisa Armstrong.

One tweeted: “Here’s a suggestion. Ant McPartlin and Scarlett Moffatt should get together. What a beautiful couple”.

Closer’s source said: “She and Ant really clicked when they met, but it’s purely platonic and she knows it must be difficult for Lisa to see reports linking the two of them.

“She prides herself on being happy-go-lucky and kind, so the idea that she’d be anything but has made her really upset and she’s furious about the rumours.”

The Gogglebox star has been friends with Ant and co-host Dec, 42, since appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in 2016.

She has called the presenting duo her “heroes”, adding: “They just said, ‘be you’, which coming from them, when they are my absolute heroes, gives me the confidence to just be me.

“If they have faith in me, I must be doing something half decent.”

Meanwhile, Scarlett and Love Island star-turned-Dancing On Ice contestant Kem recently rubbished claims they were secretly dating.

“Scarlett’s a lovely girl and she’s attractive, but there’s nothing between us,” Kem told Reveal mag.

“We are just friends. We share the same management so we’re always in the office together and having meetings, but I’ve only met her properly twice. She’s just a really nice girl.”

ED! has contacted Scarlett’s representatives for comment.
