Scarlett Moffatt breaks down in tears as she wears a bikini for the first time in 5 years after body insecurities

SCARLETT Moffatt broke down in tears on holiday as she wore a bikini for the first time in five years.

The 30-year-old has felt unable to strip off due to crippling body insecurities over the years, but finally felt ready in a huge milestone moment today.

The star, who is currently on holiday in St Lucia with her boyfriend Scott Dobby, opened up about her feelings surrounding wearing a two piece in an emotional post.

Looking amazing in the floral number, she told her followers: “This shouldn’t be a big deal but it is and I’m actually crying whilst writing this.

"It’s took me so many years to gain confidence with my body. I’ve let it down at times and missed out on holidays and nights out because I’ve not liked what I’ve seen in the mirror. 

“But hey after 5 years of not daring to wear a bikini I’m actually doing it!”

She continued: “So I hope this gives you the confidence to buy that dress, that bikini, not miss out just because your body doesn’t fit into a certain category (because let me tell you all these things are made up nobody is too slim, too curvy, too athletic, too many stretch marks, too much cellulite) LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE.”

The former Gogglebox star has been outspoken in the past about her body.

Scarlett lost a whopping three stone and slimmed down from a size 18 to a size 8 for a fitness DVD that was released in 2018.

But in an interview on Frankie Bridge's Open Mind Podcast last year, Scarlett revealed she wanted to put on weight after the DVD was released because the 700 calorie a day diet was "detrimental" to her mental health.

She went on to slam the extreme diet DVD as the "worst thing I've ever done" and wanted to "stop people buying it".

"I slowly realised it was quite detrimental to my mental health," she said.

"I've also deleted all my before and after pictures...Not only were they bad for my peace of mind it wasn't really good for other people because now I look like my before picture again.

"I sort of rebelled against the DVD because I just didn't like how it happened and I just wasn't for it anymore."
