Scarlett Moffatt faced scrutiny earlier this week after her fitness DVD was branded a ‘sham’.
And Charlotte Crosby has waded into the debate, revealing she has never ‘starved herself’ during her own weight-loss journey.
The former Geordie Shore star, 27, admitted her experience is ‘totally different’ to Scarlett’s, after reports emerged that the Gogglebox star, 27, reportedly lost weight at a strict boot camp in Switzerland, where she survived on only 700 calories a day.

Charlotte told The Sun: ‘I have never over exercised and I don’t starve myself – I never did, not even through the DVD process.
‘I never felt the pressure to lose weight, definitely not – I had a totally different experience to Scarlett.
‘I have obviously been able to keep the weight off because I did it very normally and I did it by the book; it’s just strange.’

The reality star, whose 3 Minute Belly Blitz has become the best-selling fitness DVD in the past 15 years, admitted ‘she doesn’t get it’ after Scarlett reportedly revealed she ‘felt really miserable’ while losing weight.
Charlotte added she enjoyed ‘every second of getting fit’ and that ‘maybe for others it is not for them’.
It comes after reports emerged Scarlett could face a £100,000 bill after she claimed to have lost three stone thanks to gruelling exercise as she promoted in her fitness DVD, as well as a 1,200 calories a day diet.
But according to The Sun, the I’m A Celeb star was thought to have been ‘pushed to breaking point’ when she ‘starved herself’ and exercised up to six hours a day at the Switzerland boot camp.

Of the boot camp, a source said: ‘She was really struggling and finding it hard to cope. She was on a starvation diet, exercising way too hard and not eating enough. She was pushed to breaking point.’
The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here winner went from 11st 4lb to 8st which saw her drop from a dress size 18 to a petite size 8.
According to The Sun, Scarlett had to lose three stone for the DVD deal and to ensure she could achieve it she was enrolled in a five-month fitness programme.
The source went onto tell the publication: ‘The DVD is a sham really. There is no mention of the boot camp where she was climbing mountains and exercising for six hours a day.

Different story: But Scarlett reportedly lost the weight at a strict boot camp in Switzerland where she survived on 700 calories a day, which means her DVD would be fake
‘Scarlett is one of the most popular young women on TV — a real girl-next-door figure. The DVD gave fans an unrealistic portrayal of how she lost weight.’
The TV star was said to have confided in her friend via text that she was struggling with only eating ‘like 600/700’ calories a day, according to The Sun.
She could now face a whopping £100,000 bill, due to a clause which stated needed to maintain her slim figure for a year after the DVD’s release.
MailOnline has approached Scarlett’s representatives for comment.

On the DVD, the fitness guru promised fans at the end to ‘trust’ her that they would ‘look and feel amazing’ if they kept to the routines.
She can be heard saying: ‘Trust us. I’ve done it myself. You’ll look and feel amazing. It’s well worth the sweat.’
At her eight stone, she was caught gushing over her new image at the beginning of 2017 as she insisted it had filled her with a new-found confidence.
Pleased with her efforts, Scarlett had told her fans: ‘It’s amazing how you can lose something (over 3 stone) but gain so much (confidence, health, fitness). If I can do it you can.’

However, recently, Scarlett has been forced to hit back at negative comments about her frame on social media, as she slammed body-shamers for claiming she looked ‘pregnant’ while she was filming for I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp in November.
In a Twitter outburst, she fired back: ‘I’m an actual human being with feelings! Stop it with your bullying words! Who are these people who think it’s ok to call women for the way they look… too skinny, too fat, too old, not enough make up etc.
‘What example are we teaching to the younger generation. It really upsets me that we live in a world where it’s the norm!
‘To all the girls & women who follow me. You are amazing & beautiful, whether that beauty is from your kindness, intelligence or the love you show to others.’ (sic)
