Scarlett Moffatt has revealed how she got together with her boyfriend Scott Dobinson.

The 30 year old, who recently shared a glimpse of her new "forever home" she's renovating, explained that the romance was sparked after he responded to a 999 call over a "strange man" who was lurking outside the Gogglebox star's house.

While the pair had known each other for a long time before that night, it was this event that changed their perspective of one another.

“I had a weird pap who was trying to take photos inside my house so I rang the local police station. Scott came to the house to deal with that," she explained to Mirror Online.

Scarlett, who recently said she was at her "lowest" in a slim snap and insisted she "likes her chunky belly" now, continued: “My friend was in the house with me at the time and I was like, ‘He’s so fit, I really fancy him’.

"She said, ‘Why don’t you just comment on a picture on Facebook?’

“So I commented on a picture of him and his dog Toby and put, ‘Ah, cute… and the dog’. I’d had a couple of drinks.

“In the morning, I was like, ‘I can’t believe I’ve done that!’ But he commented back with a smiley face and we started chatting on Facebook Messenger. We’d known each other a long time.”

The TV personality went on to explain that Scott took "too long" to ask her out on a date and when he eventually worked up the nerve to actually do it, their date didn't go according to plan.

Speaking on a recent podcast, she said: "Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong.

"The place we were going to eat at wasn’t open and he made a joke about taking me to McDonald’s, which I didn’t know was a joke.

“He told me I reminded him of Albert Einstein, so I was like, ‘Nah, I think we’re just best as friends’."

Luckily, her mum Betty, who was recently accused of "taking thousands of pounds from her daughter to fund her gambling habit", changed her mind.
