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."

Posted on

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.

Scarlett Moffatt, as usual, didn't pull any punches.

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."

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."

And while some other families made fairly ignorant comments about this issue like this...

...Scarlett's dad, Mark, made a point about women's wages, and her mum, Betty, responded with this.

And Scarlett was having simply none of it.

It got quite a lot of love on social media.

Love @ScarlettMoffatt smashing gender stereotypes! "No such thing as a man's job. I could dig a f***ing hole if I wanted to." #Gogglebox

I LOVE YOU SCARLETT FROM GOGGLEBOX #Gogglebox

Scarlett followed it up with this.

Awkward moment when you go to hashtag woman's rights and you write woman's tights 😂😂 #gogglebox

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!"
