Scarlett shared several loved-up selfies of herself with boyfriend Luke as they dined at a sushi restaurant chain.  

Earlier this week, Scarlett was snapped at a hair salon in Newcastle having a break mid-treatment as she was still wearing a black cape and head protector.  

She later posted a picture of her in the stylist's chair to her 163,000 Instagram followers and captioned the snap 'First step to getting my silver hair'.

Commenting on her new choice of shade, one follower wrote 'Mother of Dragons?' referencing the silver-haired character Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.

Earlier this month Scarlett revealed she was pining for her 21-year-old body as she shared two throwback snaps of 'a very skinny minnie me'. 

She captioned the four-year-old picture: 'A very Skinny Minnie Me. Ahhhh to be 21 & a size 6 again #tbt #throwbackthursday'.

The star is in the middle of a lifestyle overhaul and has vowed to shed the pounds after going from a size six to 16. 

After growing up constantly training as a semi-professional ballroom dancer, she soon stopped her exercise regime after starting university in York.

Scarlett recently revealed that a diet of 'the wrong things' - including cocktails, cake and chips - had left her at risk of becoming clinically obese and developing diabetes.

In a new interview with Closer, Scarlett explained that she is determined to lose weight after she was left mortified during a routine trip to the doctors in which she discovered her Body Mass Index.

The Newcastle-born beauty revealed: 'I knew I was overweight but when I went to the doctor for a check up, she said: "You're not overweight, you're obese".

Upon discovering she was at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, Scarlett was adamant the practitioner's words were a 'rocket up her bum'.

Of her former interest in dance, she said: 'It was really intense training but when I stopped when I was a student and discovered alcohol and kebabs and I've never found any exercise to replace it.' 

Scarlett has suffered a tough time of late, as she revealed online trolls have made her feel low atop her weight issuses.

She told the Belfast Telegraph: 'There are odd ones, mostly men, who criticise me about my weight and my size and say I'm ugly. I'd be lying if I said that it doesn't hurt sometimes.'

The pretty brunette first found fame appearing on MTV's Beauty School Cop Outs in 2013, starring opposite Celebrity Big Brother star Jeremy McConnell.

Scarlett and Jeremy shared a particularly tempestuous relationship in which she became bitterly upset with some comments made by the Irish hunk towards her.
