Last weekend at the GLAMOUR Beauty Festival, Scarlett Moffatt took to the stage with her sister Ava for a confidence masterclass.

Ava, 11, interviewed her big sister and it was too cute (and inspiring). The girls clearly have a close relationship as Scarlett said she feels most confident when "it’s you [Ava], me and my mam in the car blasting out Disney songs and Whitney. I’m with the two women I love most in the world." Aww.

She also opened up about her thoughts on social media. "Everyone is a bit nosey," she said. "It’s like if you walk down the street and someone has their blinds open, you look in... It's the side you want to show people. Believe me there are days when I don’t feel great. We’ve all taken hundreds of selfies until we get the perfect one.

"When I go out for dinner with friends, we all put our phones aside and the first person to pick up their phone has to pay the bill." We'll definitely be trying that one.

The TV star also spoke about the importance of being yourself. "When I first came out of the jungle I went through a stage where I felt like I had to try and look a certain way," she said. "I wanted to try and get out of the stereotypical Geordie girl. I stopped wearing fake tan and wore wrap dresses, but I was really miserable. I like being orange and having eyelashes that go up to my forehead." Yes, Scarlett! Keep doing you.
