Scarlett Moffatt to open her own driving school for BBC show despite failing 13 test

Scarlett Moffatt, star of Gogglebox and I’m A Celebrity, has failed her driving test 13 times.

So she opens her own driving school for other car flops like her in an effort to help them finally succeed.

That’s it for a new BBC One series called Scarlett’s Driving School.

She said, “I’m over the moon. Having failed my driving test 13 times, I know exactly how these learners feel and the pressure it puts on the person teaching you – no one will get in a car with me again!

“Hopefully my new show will give us all the confidence to finally rip those L-plates and hit the road.”

The show will take place on Teeside and its aim is to help learners who have missed lessons with professionals during the pandemic and have had to rely on family or friends which has often caused friction.

Scarlett will welcome those struggling to pass their exams to a unique five-day course at her driving school.

They will take a crash course taught by some of the best professional driving instructors in the UK.

Talking about why she is looking forward to the Pilgrimage show, Scarlett said she wants to find out what her religion is.

She said: “I’m doing the pilgrimage because I want to know what my religion is. I want to be able to answer that question with confidence.

“In school, I spent a lot of time reading books and by myself, and that’s how I really got into the faith. It was just calming.

“There’s almost a stigma attached to being religious. Every time I told my friends, they laughed and I said, ‘Why is that funny?’ I believe in God, there must be something that started all of this.

“I would describe myself as a Christian, but not a strict Christian. I don’t go to church, but I do believe that religion is a security for me.

“In my head, someone on a pilgrimage is wearing a loincloth and he has really long hair… and he looks a little dehydrated like he needs a good moisturizing mask.
