Scarlett Moffatt began romancing her police officer lover after he responded to her call for help.
The I’m A Celebrity winner told how Scott Dobinson was an arresting sight when he turned up on her doorstep after she reported seeing a stranger outside.
Scarlett, 30, has previously said that she had known Scott for years – and she was delighted when he turned up to investigate her concerns.
She told how the 36-year-old constable was despatched to her home after she called police to say she was scared.
Scarlett said: “I had a weird pap who was trying to take photos inside my house so I rang the local police station. Scott came to the house to deal with that.
“My friend was in the house with me at the time and I was like, ‘He’s so fit, I really fancy him’. She said, ‘Why don’t you just comment on a picture on Facebook?’

“So I commented on a picture of him and his dog Toby and put, ‘Ah, cute… and the dog’. I’d had a couple of drinks.
“In the morning, I was like, ‘I can’t believe I’ve done that!’ But he commented back with a smiley face and we started chatting on Facebook Messenger. We’d known each other a long time.”
Impatient Scarlett, who lives in County Durham, said Scott took “too long” to ask her out – but she admitted that her first date
with the police officer didn’t go to plan.
She told a podcast: “Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. The place we were going to eat at wasn’t open and he made a joke about taking me to McDonald’s, which I didn’t know was a joke.

“He told me I reminded him of Albert Einstein, so I was like, ‘Nah, I think we’re just best as friends’.
“It was my mam that went, ‘I’ve got a good feeling, I think you should give him another chance’ – so I’m pleased she did.
“With Scott, obviously I fancy him, but he’s just a lovely person. It’s taken me a while to get used to not having drama.”
