The beloved television personality has previously opened up the accident which affected her appearance and led her to getting bullied at school. "I smashed my teeth and had all the nerves taken out, so I had a black tooth as well as a monobrow, and I was a little bit chubby, and then half my face was on the slide," she told The Sun. Scarlett suffers from facial paralysis due to her condition with Bell's palsy, which she developed after the accident.

Speaking about her teenage bullying, Scarlett confessed she "didn't have the best time" and "didn't like life" as a result. "The way the school dealt with [the bullying] that was ten minutes before the end of the day, I was allowed to leave early so I didn't get beat up," she revealed. "I would just walk around Asda's car park until three o'clock or up until the time I was meant to come home. I just felt so embarrassed to tell my mum and dad." She explained how she kept the bullying a secret from her parents, saying "[If I] hadn't had those experiences at school, then I probably wouldn't be here. If I had just tried to fit in, I wouldn't be the weirdo that I am now."
