Scarlett Moffatt wishes sister a happy birthday

Scarlett Moffatt has marked her younger sister Ava Moffatt’s 16th birthday today by sharing footage and photos of her sibling from their time together over the years.

The presenter, 31, rose to fame on Gogglebox from 2014 onwards, where she appeared alongside her parents and sister Ava, now 16, from their home in County Durham.

It’s been more than half a decade since the family left the show in 2016, with Ava now 16 – which is something older sister Scarlett “can’t believe,” as she feels time has flown by.

The I’m a Celebrity alum paid tribute to her younger sibling on Instagram earlier to celebrate her birthday, with Scarlett describing Ava as her “favourite person in the world.”

Scarlett – who’s the eldest child of Betty Moffatt and Mark Moffatt – shared a series of photos and videos of Ava on her Instagram Story earlier to mark the special occasion.

It included a clip of the siblings on the It’s a Small World ride at a Disney theme park, as well as footage of Ava dancing along a red carpet, seemingly on another previous holiday.

Alongside the videos, the Celebrity Karaoke Club alum wrote in a message to her followers: “Today’s my little sister’s 16th birthday. She’s my favourite person in the world.”

She also shared a clip of her younger sister dancing in a kitchen, writing: “She always makes me laugh.” And alongside a photo of Ava with a dog, Scarlett wrote: “She’s so caring.”

Scarlett – who appeared alongside her family on The British Tribe Next Door in 2019 – concluded by sharing photos of the siblings, including one from when Ava was just a baby.

Alongside the two photos – which included a more recent snap of Scarlett and Ava – the older sibling had written: “Happy 16th Ava. Forever my baby sister.”

She also posted a compilation of the clips on her Instagram page, accompanying the footage with the song Slipping Through My Fingers, originally performed by ABBA.

Scarlett wrote: “Can’t believe I have a 16 year old sister. How does time go so quick when you’re an adult, yet when I was a kid the six weeks holidays felt like they went on for years.”

The post attracted well-wishes from some of her followers on the social media platform, who took to the comments section earlier this afternoon to wish Ava a ‘happy birthday’.
