Scarlett Moffatt has shared a candid photo of herself in a swimsuit to encourage her fans to love their bodies.

The I’m A Celebrity star, 28, took to Instagram on Sunday to post the snap of herself sporting a makeup-free look while wearing a monochrome plunging swimsuit and holding a cocktail.

Scarlett admitted that at first she didn’t like how she looked in the pic, however, wanted to post it to give other women confidence.

Listen up ladies we all do this… pull ourselves to bits. Focus on our flaws, on how we aren’t “perfect” I’m guilty to, I stare at these amazingly stunning woman on Instagram and think oh no I have wobbly bits here there and everywhere compared to them. So I’ve uploaded this photo as when I first looked at it I instantly said oh Scarlett delete this photo your arm looks weird it’s not toned at all & it’s hanging over your swimsuit, my boobs have been defeated by gravity and aren’t where society or the trolls persistently say they should be and my skin is far from perfect but my fellow ladies what I am on this photo is happy and smiling and living my best life, flaws and all. Ladies please look at yourselves and love yourself, realise that no one is truly perfect and you don’t need to look perfect in order to live your best life. As Dr Seuss said “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You!” ❤️ #bodyconfidence #love #selflove #nofilter #nomakeup #bestlife
