Scarlett Moffatt has admitted that the "biggest regret" of her life was doing her own fitness DVD.

In 2018, the former Gogglebox star released a workout DVD after shedding three stone and dropping from a size 18 to a size 8 by following a gruelling 700 calorie-per-day diet.

However, it quickly emerged that the reality star was only consuming 300 calories per day and attended a training BootCamp secretly.

Reflecting on that period of her life, the 30 year old said on the BoobShare podcast: "Something I don't talk about ever is an ad on a fitness DVD, which I always say is like, my biggest regret."

Scarlett explained: "What people need to understand is, I was so young, like I was in my early 20s. I was working in an office, I was very new to this [celebrity] industry.

"I had no representation, and it seemed like a good thing at the time. And I feel like I'm always penalised for that.

"And it's really upsetting because that's just such a small part of my life and a mistake that I made. But I seem to still be getting sh*t for it."

The I'm A Celebrity star said she has "even apologised about doing the before-and-after pictures because now I realise how detrimental AR [augmented reality] is to people's mental health".

Scarlett added that she can "honestly hand-on-heart" say that her time losing weight for the workout DVD was "the most miserable time."

Speaking previously about her regret over the DVD, the brunette said she later "rebelled against the DVD because I just didn't like how it happened, and I just wasn't for it anymore."

"I purposefully started putting weight on. I was sort of like, 'if I get big again, it can't get brought up'. I can't have this stigma attached to me about this DVD, and people will stop buying it," she told Frankie Bridge on her Open Mind podcast last year.

Scarlett has now come to love her body and regularly preaches body confidence to her Instagram followers.

In August, she urged fans to "not let their mind bully their body" in a series of swimwear snaps.
