    Scarlett Moffatt Has Had An Epic Rant On Women's Pay On "Gogglebox"

    "There's no such thing as 'a man's job', Mum. We're all equal."

    In the first of a new series of Gogglebox, the families debated a news story about firms having to disclose the differences in how much they pay men and women.

    This was just a few minutes after she said that she needed help putting a light bulb up in her bedroom because "part of being a dad is DIY."

    When asked about the reaction to her comments on the show, Scarlett told BuzzFeed News, "People were saying I should run for prime minister and that, ha, but I'm super pleased Gogglebox showed this news item because it's a subject that needs bloody addressing!

    "And hopefully it got people talking about how unfair it is. I can dig a hole just as well as a bloody bloke!"
