Meanwhile, Scarlett was in high spirits as she reunited with her loved ones at a welcome home party in her native Bishop Auckland on Sunday night.

Featuring a black studded belt, the dress nipped in Scarlett's waist and flaunted her lithe physique.

She added a subtly glamorous edge to the ensemble with some tan suede caged heels and a monogrammed Louis Vuitton mini-tote.

Ditching the extensions, the former Beauty School Copouts star embraced a more natural look as she wore her raven hair in glossy  waves.

Scarlett, who was crowned I'm A Celebrity champ last week, revealed she wasn't affected by the fame as she attended the bash at a pub just minutes from her parents' house.

Inside, the venue was decorated with posters and banners and featured cakes to make it look like a Bush Tucker trial.

Clearly overwhelmed with the thoughtful gesture, Scarlett shared an Instagram snap sitting on the throne.

The Geordie beauty captioned the happy shot: 'Thanks so much to my friends & family for the lovely surprise party'.

It comes as further details of Scarlett's humble beginnings have emerged - revealing she worked as a shot girl in a pub in Magaluf in 2014.

She worked in the Spanish resort - infamous for wild partying and raucous drinking -for two months and admitted she once saw two strangers have sex in front of her.

The reality queen told the Daily Star: 'Once, I watched a random guy bend a girl over at one of the infamous foam parties.

'From there it turned into soft porn and she never once turned around to even see what the guy's face looked like.

'What that young girl did was wrong, very wrong, but after watching the footage it's clear to see how a drunk, vulnerable 18-year-old could get swept up in the moment and madness that is Maga.'
