Scarlett Moffatt Reveals Unlikely Friendship With Tom Hardy
The former Gogglebox star, 29, revealed she had travelled to Disneyland Paris with the Peaky Blinders star, 42, back in 2016, when they both appeared on an episode of Alan Carr's talkshow.
And they have been pals ever since, with Scarlett even visiting Tom's home for a game of chess.
Speaking on Elizabeth Day's How to Fail podcast, Scarlett said: "I think the time when I really got freaked out was when Tom Hardy came up to me and said 'Scarlett, can I have a photo?'
"And I went 'What?!? Do you want me to take a photo of you?'
"And he said 'No, me and [Tom's wife Charlotte Riley] Charlotte watched you in the Jungle and we loved you in Gogglebox!'
"And I was like 'What? You watch telly?' I was just so shocked that Tom Hardy watches the TV!"
Proving he's the down-to-earth guy we knew he was, Scarlett went on to reveal that later in the day, Tom's agent came over and asked if she wanted to hang out with him and Charlotte.
"Later his agent came in and said: 'Tom would like your number and him and Charlotte would like you to come over and play chess or play board games one time.'

"I said 'Yeah, it's with Tom and Charlotte... chess, tiddlywinks, whatever!' So I passed my number on and he texted me saying 'this is Tom's number'."
While things were off to a flying start, it almost went disastrously wrong when Scarlett went to text a picture of her outfit to her mum.
"I accidentally sent it to Tom while he was in the next room and I literally started crying, I was so mortified," she said.
"I thought I'd ruined my chances of becoming friends with him."
Luckily, Tom saw the funny side, and sent a photograph back doing the exact same pose in the mirror.
"Whoops, was meant to send that to my mum too," he wrote.
We are *so* here for this friendship.
