Scarlett Moffatt treats mum to birthday spa day eight months after gambling struggle

SCARLETT Moffatt treated mum Betty to a trip out to a luxury spa to celebrate her birthday – after their relationship was frayed by gambling addiction. 

The pair, who both found fame on Channel 4’s Gogglebox, spent the day lapping up beauty treatments and relaxing by the pool for an extra-special wind-down. 


Uploading a video of their day to TikTok, Scarlett documented everything they got up to and we have to say, we’re pretty jealous. 

Speaking over clips of their time together, Scarlett said: “We braved the outside, even though the weather wasn’t on our side because, well, we’re northern after all!

“We had some beautiful Ishga facials, which honestly, hands down the best facial I ever had. That nourishing oil? Mwah, superb.” 

As Betty posed in her dressing gown next to the inside pool, Scarlett continued: “Then we had some sorbet, and filled out faces with pancakes and vegetable spring rolls, some thai green curry and chow mein – plus another cheeky prosecco.

“Then we just chilled out on a waterbed.” 

The sweet mother-daughter day out comes after Scarlett revealed mum Betty was seeking help for a gambling addiction that resulted in her nicking £50,000 from her. 

Back in January, former I’m A Celeb champ Scarlett revealed her 50-year-old mum ended up with an online gambling addiction during lockdown. 

Believing she could turn things around, Betty started dipping into her daughter’s accounts in order to get money for her online games, only to squander it and land herself further in debt. 

It was only when Scarlett realised the money was missing that the truth came out. 

Scarlett previously described Betty as her best friend and “mamager” – with the Northern mum owning shares in her daughter’s company, Northern Unicorn Productions.

Despite feeling ‘bewildered and confused’ by the upsetting betrayal, Scarlett stuck by her mum’s side as she sought help for her problems. 

Thankfully, it seems that they are both still as tight as ever. 

“The whole family has had to give Betty the emotional and physical support she needs,” a source told The Sun at the time. 

“Scarlett has done lots of research into the perils of online gambling and hopes that by this story coming out she and Betty can help others in a similar position.

“Betty is still getting therapy, but has all the love and support of her family to beat this.”
