    Scarlett Moffatt

    Scarlett Moffatt rose to fame when she appeared on Gogglebox back in 2014. Then two years later she won ITV's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

    On the outside it appeared that her life was perfect - but behind the scenes the abuse on social media she was receiving was severely affecting her mental health.

    She talks to Kylie about how she struggled to leave the house and hid how she was feeling from her family. Then, finally, she called Samaritans to get help. That one call changed the course of her life forever.

    She's now an ambassador for the charity and wants to spread the word about the amazing work they do.
