SCARLETT Moffatt's new boyfriend has been described as "fame hungry" by an angry ex.
Earlier this month, The Sun was first to reveal how the former Gogglebox star had found love with hunky Lee Wilkinson.
Scarlett, 27, then confirmed the romance over the weekend on Instagram, but a former flame of Lee's has warned the star he is only "using her" for fame.
Speaking to OK! the girl – who wanted to remain anonymous – said: "Lee was with me at Christmas.
"He’s a cheat and always has been. He has no respect for anyone and he’s fame hungry and using her.
"He regularly told me how he just wanted to be known as Instagram famous – that’s the type he is."
To add further insult to injury for Scarlett, Lee's ex revealed how the fitness model had messaged her as recently as last week to lament the end of their relationship, telling her he was finding it "hard to let go".
A representative for Scarlett declined to comment when contacted by The Sun Online.
The Sun previously revealed how Scarlett has known Lee for more than ten years and the couple had been secretly dating since they met up over Christmas.
A source said: “Scarlett hasn’t been concerned by the Ant speculation as she has been focused on her new relationship.
“She has always liked Lee but after making it in television and moving to London, Scarlett never expected to get together with him.
“But after going back up north over the festive period they connected and have been in constant contact ever since.
"She is now living in the north again and it has enabled them to spend more time together, away from prying eyes.”
Scarlett then took to Instagram on Saturday night to share the first picture of them together on a date night.
She captioned the shot: “Love this one… love a night in Newcastle #datenight.”
