Scarlett Moffatt made an incredibly bizarre appearance during Monday’s edition of Loose Women.
During an interview live from her County Dunham home, the former Gogglebox star, 30, claimed she was abducted by aliens as a child as she promoted her new podcast, Wants To Believe, featuring her boyfriend Scott Dobinson.
The presenter left the panel in shock as she also admitted she believes the ‘Paul McCartney is dead’ conspiracy theory – a longtime urban legend that alleged the Beatles legend, 77, died in the 60s and was secretly replaced by an impersonator.

The media personality spoke to Andrea McLean, Nadia Sawalha, Brenda Edwards and Gloria Hunniford about her experience with what she perceived as an alien invasion.
‘My earliest memory ever is when me and my dad used to take a notepad to a field to go looking for crop circles’, Scarlett shared.
‘My boyfriend doesn’t believe this, but when I was 10, a massive beaming light came when through my window, and I had a dream, well I think the [aliens] wanted to think it was a dream, and Scott seems to think that it was just a car headlight and that it was probably a dream!
‘My middle name is Sigourney because my dad is a fan of Sigourney Weaver from the film Aliens’.

Blossom like Scarlett in a floral top from Peacocks
Scarlett Moffatt looked blooming fabulous for her appearance on Loose Women, opting for a floral top from Peacocks.
Scarlett is a brand ambassador for the high street giant, so it’s no surprise to see her donning one of its latest designs.
This little top exudes spring chic thanks to its ditsy floral print and vibrant colour palette. It’s cut to flatter with angel sleeves and a peplum hem that would look great worn over or under jeans and skirts alike.
While the hosts raised their eyebrows, the Geordie star attempted to reason: ‘I’m literally obsessed. Me and Scott on our first date, I asked him if he thought we’d really been to the moon.
‘This is what confuses us – people say ‘Oh I believe we’ve landed on the moon’, but then they find it really far-fetched that there can’t be other planets where other little men haven’t travelled to our planet.’
The TV star later shared her thoughts on the ‘Paul is dead’ phenomenon, which first emerged in September 1969 after college students at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa published articles claiming various clues to his supposed death could be found in The Beatles’ album cover artwork and lyrics.
False! The icon (pictured in 2018), 77, has since denied the phenomenon, revealing on a 2018 episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show: ‘We just kind of let it go’

Expressing her take on the theory, Scarlett said: ‘Well I don’t know if he’s dead, but there’s loads of evidence that he’s been replaced by a lookalike. If you sing some of the Beatles’ lyrics backwards, it says that!’
‘Paul, if you’re watching, can you let us know if you’re alright?’, Andrea joked.
Legendary singer Paul, 77, has since denied the claims, revealing on a 2018 episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show: ‘We just kind of let it go.’
The 2016 I’m A Celebrity winner revealed her new project will detail her love for wacky hypotheses, sharing: ‘Everyone is stuck in the house, and they’re running out of things to talk about.

‘Conspiracy theories are good to look at and you can find yourself Googling things until 3am!’
‘My older sister is a conspiracy theorist, and its sometimes annoying to have conversations with her’, Nadia confessed, before Scarlett chimed in: ‘Scott is the complete opposite to me, his idea of fun is flat pack furniture. It works as we end up having a conversation for two hours – that’s part of the point.’
The British Tribe Next Door star’s kooky appearance didn’t stop there, as she revealed she has an imaginary flatmate named after Tiger King’s Carole Baskin, sharing: ‘If there are dirty dishes or the toilet seat is up, I blame Carole!’
Scarlett left viewers bewildered by her remarks, with one tweeting: ‘Imagine being Paul McCartney and having some lady (mostly famous for watching tv) telling everyone your dead … #loosewomen.’ [sic]
‘Probably not the right time to hear Scarlett’s theories right now #LooseWomen’, another amused fan penned.
Others added: ‘Scarlett Moffat has lost the plot in lockdown #loosewomen…
‘#loosewomen sorry but the whole Paul McCartney is dead thing has been around since the 60’s… You haven’t thought of this yourself
‘Oh Scarlett…This make Boris sound absolutely clear and scientifically plausible #loosewomen
‘Oh,Scarlett, love – you’ve been inside too long.#LooseWomen’. [sic]

Elsewhere in the discussion, the former Extra Camp presenter spoke about how she’s dealing with the UK’s coronavirus lockdown, and also shared tips on how to deal with online abuse from trolls.
‘I’m really good under the circumstances. I probably FaceTime my mum about 60 times a day.
‘Over the last six months, I’ve changed as a person. As other things in my life are going well, now I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t care.
‘If you want to spend time being nasty, that’s a reflection of you, not me. I’ve never been in a place where I’ve wanted to be that nasty to someone.’
