Scarlett Moffatt has shared her heartbreak after a change in lockdown rules has forced her to cancel her big 30th birthday celebrations next month.

Earlier in the week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that groups of more than six people will be banned from meeting – both indoor and outdoor – as of Monday in the ongoing battle against coronavirus.

The former Gogglebox star was devastated by the news and admitted she was struggling to cope with the ongoing changes.

Scarlett admitted the new restrictions are causing her anxiety 

Trying to find a silver lining, Scarlett joked that the ban on large social gatherings meant she would stay 29 for another year.

She added: "Also side note - the fact all my 30th birthday plans have been cancelled means I can stay 29 for another year?"

When the rules come into effect next week, Boris warned that anyone caught breaking the new restrictions risks being arrested and can be fined £100, doubling for each incident up to £3,200.
