If you’ve ever watched Gogglebox you’ll know Scarlett Moffatt is funny. But she really outdoes herself on Celebrity First Dates tonight when she’s paired up with a date who is lovely, but certainly talks more than Scarlett can handle. He tells an extraordinarily long story and while she said she wanted a chatterbox, she quickly regrets this item on her dating wish-list…

But more entertaining than the actual date is what she says to camera and to French maitre d’ waiter Fred. Here are some of her best quotes from the episode – and why she is reality royalty.

On why her love life has declined since Gogglebox started…

“The people that come up to us are like, ‘Aw my mam loves you’ and I’m like, ‘What about you? I don’t care about your mam, no offence.'”

On people saying she’s made it cool to hang out with your parents…

“Me, my mum and dad are like the Brady Bunch. We’re like Geordie von Trapps.” 

Her account of a bad date she once went on…

“He ate his peas with a steak knife and then he asked me to go Halfords car park with him  – I was like, no, take me home sunshine”

On her attitude to love…

“What’s the world? Romantical? That’s what I am”

On fake tan…

“I did ballroom dancing…so I wore fake tan before fake tan was cool. So I had fake tan on when I was like 12.  It’s hard for kids to understand: ‘Why are you this colour when your parents are this colour?””

On what she wants out of a relationship…

“I don’t want in ten years’ time to be sat in silence watching EastEnders with a brew. That is not how I want my life to be”

Yeah, we don’t think you’ve got much to worry about there, Scarlett…
