Scarlett Moffatt looks unrecognisable in a skimpy pink dress as she shares epic throwback snap from her days as a ballroom dancer

Scarlett Moffatt looks almost unrecognisable in a throwback snap she has shared of her days as a latin and ballroom dancer.

While she’s busy co-hosting I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Extra Camp with Joe Swash and Joel Dommett these days, Scarlett, 28, was a dancer before finding fame on the small screen.

In the sweet photo, Scarlett can be seen wearing a glittering fuchsia costume with an embellished belt buckle.

Scarlett topped off her dance attire with a pair of strappy heels and hoop earrings while wearing her brunette locks in an updo. 

Sharing the snap on her Instagram stories, Scarlett wrote: ‘OMG I look like a different person’ while she complimented her younger friend, saying: ‘you look cute though’.

Scarlett competed in several national, regional and local dancing competitions when she was a child.

She started her ballroom dancing career at the tender age of six and kept it up until she attended university, later becoming known for starring on Channel 4’s Gogglebox with her family.

As a result of all her experience on the dancefloor, Scarlett reckons she will probably never appear as a celebrity contestant on Strictly Come Dancing as viewers would see her past ballroom days as giving her an unfair advantage.

She told The Wright Stuff: ‘You know what, I feel like I would get more grief for doing Strictly because I’ve danced before. 

‘People would say it won’t be fair because she’s already danced.’

According to The Sun, reality stars have been banned from Strictly Come Dancing after cast members from TOWIE and other shows falsely claimed they were ‘in talks’ with the show.

Speaking recently to The Mirror, Scarlett told how she has learned to ‘blank out’ cruel internet trolls who have sent her vicious comments in the past.

She said: ‘If I’ve learnt anything, and if I can encourage others, I’d say try to focus and love the people that are loving you, rather than hate the people hating you.

‘Otherwise you get into this cycle of negative thoughts. You have to try and blank it out.’
