Scarlett Moffatt has shocked fans by posting a throwback snap from the last time she competed in a dance show in 2008.

The TV host, best known for her stint on Channel 4’s Gogglebox, used to be a latin and ballroom dancer, competing in local and national contests.

Scarlett, 30, shared the picture on Instagram Stories while reminiscing online.

She wrote: “This popped up on my time hop… 12 years ago my last ever dance competition.”

It’s not the first time the popular star has posted about her past life as a dancer.

Back in 2018 she posted footage of herself performing at the tender age of 10 in Blackpool.

She wrote: "HUGE throw back to 10 year old Scarlett back in 2001 doing a ballroom tango dance demonstration for the UKA in the wintergardens at Blackpool!

"Come on Scarlett you can do better than that, compress your knees more and sharpen those head movements."

And last year, Scarlett posted another shot of herself wearing a yellow dress at Winter Gardens Blackpool.

She wrote: “14 year throwback to my ballroom dancing days. Ahhh how I miss strictly!! Also imagine going into school with this much fake tan on in 2004. I based this dress on my true heroine belle.”

And while many have encouraged Scarlett to appear on BBC dance show Strictly Come Dancing, the Celebrity Karaoke Club star appeared to rule it out in 2018.

“I feel like I probably couldn’t because I can already dance. I feel like I would have a very unfair advantage,” she told The Sun.

But speaking earlier this year, Scarlett downplayed her skills to Metro when asked if she’d been approached to appear.

She said: “Do you know what, I’ve had chats before, right?

“But because, um, I think there has been some kind of miscommunication somewhere of how good of a dancer I was.

“People think I’m a professional and I’m like, ‘I wasn’t a professional.’

“It will probably 11 years now since I last danced! But yeah, people have this misconception that I’m a pro.

“But I’m no Anton Du Beke, let’s put it that way!”

And when quizzed earlier this year by Christine Blakely on an episode of ITV’s Lorraine on whether she would be taking part this year, Scarlett admitted she is a big fan of the show.

She said: “I love Strictly. If not, I’ll just be there on TikTok making my own cha-cha dances up.”
