The former Gogglebox star is set to return to our screens.

Scarlett Moffatt is set to once again hit our screens, as she is set to host a new documentary on Channel 5 about tourettes and tic disorders.

Moffatt, who is usually a TV regular, grew up with a facial tic when she was a young child, and will be looking to end certain stigma’s and shed more light on tics.

The former Gogglebox star, 31, has risen to fame in recent years, most notably when she took part in I’m A Celebrity, which saw her stock rise. Since then, she has enjoyed a regular, steady gig on the much loved show Gogglebox, and has been on various panel shows in recent times.

Tourette’s syndrome is a condition in which a person makes involuntary sounds and movements, known as tics.

Tics can come in a variety of forms, and are fast, repetitive muscle movement and can be displayed via moment of limbs or sound.

This new documentary will undoubtedly be closer to Ms Moffatt’s heart, who also revealed in an exclusive interview with The Sun, that she also grew up with a condition named Bell’s Palsy.

Bell’s Palsy is a temporary weakness or lack of movement that affects just one side of the face, it can make simple things we take for granted such as eating or drinking quite hard.

The release date for this documentary has yet to be confirmed.
