STRESSED Scarlett Moffatt did her best to relax today after it was revealed her mum's gambling addiction cost her £50,000.
The 30-year-old told fans she was going to relax in a bubble bath before turning in for an early night.
It's after The Sun reported Gogglebox star Betty, 50, nicked £50,000 from the I’m A Celebrity winner to fund her gambling habit.
Although she has chosen to remain quiet about her family's challenging struggle, Scarlett posted a on Instagram today of her bath.
She wrote: "And relax. Early night for this one."
The former professional couch potato's mum blew a fortune in online casinos during lockdown and needed rehab.
After plunging deeper into debt, Betty – who has worked for millionaire Scarlett since her 2016 I’m A Celebrity win – took cash from her daughter’s accounts expecting to pay it back with a change of luck.
After failing to win back the cash, she was forced to confess to her eldest daughter Scarlett, which left her “betrayed and confused”.
She vowed to stand by her mum and get her checked into rehab.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “It has been a traumatic few months.
“Betty started out having the odd flutter here or there as a bit of fun to break up lockdown boredom.
“But before she knew it, and as these things so often do, matters spiralled out of control.
“She was losing thousands every week, and became desperate and panicky. In sheer desperation, she took money from Scarlett’s account.
“But she obviously always thought she would win it back, and be able to repay her.
“Of course, she never did win the money and the next thing she knew, Scarlett realised her account was missing tens of thousands, and was horrified.
"Initially she didn’t understand and obviously felt betrayed and confused.
“But once Betty broke down and explained what had happened Scarlett couldn’t have been more supportive.
Scarlett and Betty shot to fame seven years ago commenting on the week’s TV shows on Channel 4’s Gogglebox.
