Scarlett Moffatt’s parents DIDN’T pay off mortgage with her money

Gogglebox star revealed she gave them cash to buy their home outright

We all got a warm and fuzzy feeling inside when Scarlett Mofatt revealed to I’m A Celebrity camp-mates that she had used her showbiz earnings to buy her parents’ home.

Chatting to Joel Dommett and Wayne Bridge, she explained: “I just wrote them a letter and said, thanks for being mint, and sorry for leaving fake tan all over the house, and then I put a cheque in for them.”

What a lovely, sweet gesture.

Now, though, it turns out that Scarlett didn’t pay off her folks’ mortgage.

But she wasn’t lying about it. The Geordie beauty did give her ma and dad the money – but they have put it aside for something else.

Yes, Betty, 46, and Mark, 50, have invested the money.

Not for a rainy day for them, though. It’s – wait for it – for Scarlett.

Awww, we see where she got her generous streak from!

Her parents want to help their eldest daughter get on the property ladder.

Betty told The Sun: “Well, she thinks she’s paid off our mortgage, but it’s actually been put in an ISA for her.

“She keeps saying, ‘When I buy somewhere it’ll probably be in the north, near us. You get so much more for your money in the north!

“‘I want a little bit of land with it, and a donkey.’ I don’t know what goes on in her head!”

What mint people the Moffatts are!
