Bishop Auckland beauty to appear in reality show
A WOMAN with brains and beauty hopes appearing in a reality TV show will help her find fame and fortune.
Scarlett Sigourney Moffatt, from Bishop Auckland, is one of eight image conscious young people that will star in the MTV series Beauty School Cop Outs.
For six weeks during the summer they lived, socialised and worked together in a Manchester salon learning the tricks of the beauty trade.
Their trials and triumphs were captured on film and will be shown on MTV on Tuesday nights, from October 29.
Miss Moffatt, a fan of big eyelashes and fake tan, dreams of opening a salon in her home town and applied to be on the show to start training and raise her profile.
She said: “Bishop is such a great place, it has so much potential and nice people.
“I’d love to have a salon offering unashamedly over the top treatments.
“The show was fun and we got to work with the crème de la crème like a top celebrity spray tanner but I will get more training and qualifications so I’m taken seriously.”
The 23-year-old went to Sunnydale School, in Shildon, then Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, in Darlington, and will graduate from York St John University with a degree in PE and sports coaching in November.
While at university she worked for upmarket cosmetics firm Clinique but was sacked for giving clients makeovers so heavy they looked orange.
She loves dolling herself up for a night out with friends in local pubs, a favourite being Monaco in Bishop Auckland, and making over her seven-year-old sister Ava-Grace, a pupil at Etherley Lane Primary School, for dance shows.
Miss Moffatt, who lives with her parents Mark and Elisabeth, is looking forward to the celebrity she could gain from the show. Within hours of its first advert being aired she was spotted in her local supermarket.
She said: “I cried when the woman serving me recognised me, it was so exciting and I cannot wait to be seen on TV.
“I’m hoping people see it as a bit of fun and I can use it to go on the bigger things and plan to get more training and qualifications so I can be taken seriously.”
