Scarlett Moffatt is aiming to raise £20,000 to buy her parents their dream caravan.

Scarlett Moffatt has made enough money to pay off her parents' mortgage after starring on hit show Gogglebox.

The 26-year-old first tried for a TV career on MTV show Beauty School Cop Outs before she and her family were cast in the Channel 4 programme, which films viewers as they watch television.

Scarlett is now appearing on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, and told campmate Wayne Bridge that she only gave up her regular 9 to 5 job last year (15) when she started to become more well known.

Revealing her financial hopes for the future, Scarlett said: "My aim is to be able to buy me mam and dad a caravan. ‘Cause they’ve always wanted one, but they are like £20,000, and I really want to be able to buy them one.

“And that’s the dream, everyone wants to be able to look after their mama and dad, like they did when they were younger. I paid off their mortgage off with my mum and dad’s house for them."

Wayne then asked Scarlett how that made her feel, to which she replied: "I just wrote them a letter and said, thanks for being mint, and sorry for leaving fake tan all over the house, and then I put a cheque in for them."

Scarlett's fee for I'm A Celebrity has not been confirmed, but it is believed to be between £40,000 and £70,000.

She has also been hitting headlines in recent months due to her dramatic weight loss, upon which she has capitalised for a fitness DVD, Scarlett's SuperSlim Me Plan.

Announcing the release of the DVD, Scarlett wrote on her Instagram page: “Overwhelmed & feeling very emotional that me, Scarlett ‘professional couch potato’ Moffatt can finally share the secrets of my weight loss – my fitness DVD Scarlett’s SuperSlim Me is available to pre-order now. SO EXCITED!”
