Scarlett Moffat has revealed she once set her mum and dad's house ablaze after becoming fixated with Carol Vorderman on 'Countdown'
Scarlett Moffatt once set her family's kitchen on fire because she was so "engrossed" watching Carol Vorderman on 'Countdown'.
The 'Gogglebox' star and the 55-year-old mathematician competed on this year's series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!', and the brunette beauty - who was crowned queen of the jungle - has revealed she almost burnt her parent's house down a few years ago because she left her junk food in the oven too long after getting spellbound by Carol on the Channel 4 show.
Speaking about her love for the busty beauty on 'Alan Carr's Christmas Chatty Man' on Sunday (25.12.16), she said: "I mean, sitting next to Carol Vorderman in a Big Bush Bake Off (jungle task). That is what dreams are made of. Never did I think this would happen.
"I was sat next to her while she was eating a turkey knacker. I was like, 'This is my life'. How amazing! You are eating a knacker in front of us, Carol. And actually because of Carol, well not personally Carol, I actually set my kitchen on fire. I got that engrossed in a game of 'Countdown' I forgot I put potato wedges and a burger on. My mam went mad at us because when the fireman came ... Oh it was proper serious, we had to get our kitchen refitted! They asked if we were all right and I said, 'hungry'. My mam was like, 'That is not even funny Scarlett'."
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old beauty is determined to stay in touch with all of her camp mates because they all got on so well when they were thrown into the jungle together this month.
She said: "Literally all of them. We have a WhatsApp group and the night that we got back it was 3.30am and I said, 'Missing you all and my hammock' and one by one everyone was replying. We have organised to meet up for food and we genuinely like each other. It's not pretending. We genuinely really, really like each other."
'Alan Carr's Christmas Chatty Man' airs on Christmas Day (25.12.16) at 10.30pm on Channel 4.
