Former 'Gogglebox' star Scarlett Moffatt has told the coronavirus to "f*** off" after new UK measures ruined her 30th birthday plans
Scarlett Moffatt has told the coronavirus to "f*** off".
The former 'Gogglebox' star turns 30 on October 17, and she is devastated after the UK's strict new rules have ruined plans for her birthday celebrations with people now legally not allowed to meet up in groups of more than six.
Scarlett posted a picture of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's press conference on her Instagram Story, and wrote: "30th birthday plans ruined... Wish corona virus would F*** OFF NOW (sic)"
She later criticised the government for encouraging people to socialise with the Eat Out To Help Out scheme, and then imposing stricture measures.
She added: "So they told us to go out and do help out to eat out... Now they're saying we have to stay in!! What is happening man!! (sic)"
Scarlett previously admitted she believes the government are using robotic pigeons to spy on people, and suggested the idea came from carrier pigeons used to send messages during World War Two.
Speaking on her conspiracy theories podcast 'Scarlett Moffatt Wants to Believe', she said: "I'm not saying all pigeons, I don't think they eradicated all of them. If you think about World War Two, they had carrier pigeons to carry messages back and forth.
"It isn't that far-fetched, I just think they're very incognito, they're everywhere, in all major cities... you'd never suspect a pigeon."
However, the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' winner did spot a flaw in the government's plans as she noted she has nothing interesting to say.
She added: "We talk utter s****. There would be no reason for us to be bugged."
The 29-year-old star also suggested the government is using technology to listen to their conversations at home, and refuses to use a smart speaker her grandmother bought her for Christmas.
She explained: "For Christmas, off my nanny, I got one of those smart speakers I'm going to have to re-gift it to someone because I daren't plug it in the house because I just think they must be listening all the time. The walls literally have ears.
"I've been doing research. Even if you turn your location off. They still know it's coming from the closest point. So they know what area you're in anyway."
