PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! North East TV personality Scarlett Moffatt has said it “meant everything” to be given the opportunity to showcase her home region in her upcoming TV project. The 32-year-old from Bishop Auckland in County Durham willl front a brand new BBC One show, Scarlett’s Driving School, as she attempts to help those struggling to pass their driving test- all while joining them in their quest. Speaking to the PA news agency about the experience of filming the show, the star, who first found fame starring on Gogglebox, said: “It’s just been such a nice project to work on because it’s not very often that you get your name in the title of a show."

After failing to pass her own driving test 13 times, Moffatt said: “I think for me, especially during lockdown, I felt really quite isolated… It made me realise, I do really really need to pass.” Each of the learner drivers attend Moffatt’s driving school with their long-suffering family member or friend who has had to become an amateur teacher and are given an intensive five-day crash course by some of the UK’s top professional driving instructors. After completing the course, Moffatt took her test in September along with those featured in the show and successfully passed.

. “I just get so excited every time I get my car keys, because I’ve been learning since I was 17 and I’m 32 now, you know it’s been a long time coming,” she said. Moffatt revealed that she began crying after finding out she had passed and was particularly impressed that she was able to successfully complete her parking manoeuvre, adding: “I don’t mean to live up to the stereotypical ‘women can’t park,’ but this woman cannot park.” The presenter also revealed that passing her driving test has improved her health. “I feel like I’m now the designated driver for everyone, and actually weirdly, I feel healthier for it,” she said. “In the sense that before when we would go out for food I would always have a couple glasses of wine, whereas now I’m not, because I’m the designated driver.” However, the former Queen of the Jungle did admit the first place she went after passing her test was McDonald’s, adding: “I always said the first place I was gonna go was McDonald’s and honestly, I felt so excited. “The woman on the Tannoy on the drive-through was probably like she’s far too excited for these nuggets. But it just felt so good to be able to drive there myself.” Scarlett’s Driving School is coming soon to BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
