Scarlett has a very close relationship with both dad Mark and mum Betty.

"I told her we'd never been friends and that she'd been a bully who had destroyed my confidence and ruined my time at school. I told her I hoped her two daughters would never go through what I'd gone through, or have to deal with anyone like her. I put down my basket, walked out of there. And I felt like cheering."
