Scarlett Moffatt gave a defiant message to her critics as she returned to Instagram following a turbulent week.
The former Gogglebox star found herself caught in controversy this week when an online boutique accused her of blagging a bespoke £150 skirt for free and then failing to promote it online as agreed.
Following the backlash, Scarlett deleted all of her Twitter posts before issuing a grovelling apology to start-up company My Suitcase Boutique.
Less than a day later, the former I'm A Celeb winner deleted the string of messages she posted about the drama.
Scarlett looked determined to turn over a new leaf as she went back to promoting high-street brand Peacocks.
The 29-year-old said she was: "blocking out the haters" as she shared a snap of some rose-tinted sunglasses.
She then posted a snap of her dressed head to toe in Peacocks clobber to Instagram, but notably turned the comments off.
MySuitcase Boutique went public with screenshots of her asking for a bespoke £150 skirt then allegedly block them when they asked why she hadn't shared snaps to social media as agreed.
After deleting her entire Twitter following the backlash, Scarlett then returned to Instagram hours later where she explained what happened.
Speaking out on her Story, she wrote: "I've been super busy and intended to wear the MySuitcase Boutique but instead will be returning the skirt."
"Also I get so busy and bombarded with admin if anyone needs to message me just DM me. I'll start and sort my messages and not be so crap at admin," she promised.
"Massive apologies to MySuitcase Boutique," she added.
Scarlett then explained why her Twitter posts had been deleted following the furore.
"Side note haven't used Twitter in 7 month apart from links to insta that's why I deleted it nothing to do with this incident. Imagine lol!!" she said followed by a cry-laughing emoji.
Start-up retailer My Suitcase Boutique then took to their own social media to say they'd be accepting the former I'm A Celeb winner's apology.
The statement read: "I have accepted Scarlett Moffatt's apology and I believe it's completely genuine, please can I ask that you stop trolling and the hate mail towards her, the post was never intended to cause any nastiness, purely to attempt to get a response from her.
"Now that we have spoke, we have agreed for the skirt to be sent back."
