After her visit to the clinic, the Gogglebox star once again took to Instagram, this time to tell her followers that despite coronavirus restrictions, the process of having a smear test is "literally the same as normal" adding that the only difference was that "everyone wears masks".

Scarlett explained: "I posted earlier that I was going for a smear test and I've had a lot of messages [from] people saying, 'What is it like now that there are restrictions because of COVID 19?' It's literally the same as normal when you go for a smear, but everyone wears masks.

"And… I mean really you should be sanitizing your hands constantly when you're in a hospital, but there's sort of extra hand sanitiser about. Again, it was just a little bit uncomfortable for like three minutes. Please don’t miss your smear and a massive thank you to Rachel who is always wonderful and chills me out."

Scarlett is known for using her platform to share important messages, whether they're about health or body positivity.

Back in February, the star shared a stunning selfie in a black swimsuit, writing: "Hi, my names Scarlett, I have boobs, hips and cellulite but am I gonna stop that from taking a photo and posting it for all to see?" You go, Scarlett!
