Controversies & Scandals
In March 2018, questions arose on the credibility of the claims made by Moffatt's fitness DVD tilted "SuperSlim Me Plan," which was released in 2016. The reality star claimed that the regime demonstrated in her DVD coupled with a 1,200 calories/day diet allowed her drop from a dress size 18 to a size 8. Later, it was stated that Moffatt had signed a deal with Big Shot Productions Ltd under which she had to attend regular fitness sessions before filming the DVD. Also, at that time, she consumed only 700 calories per day. Big Shot Productions Ltd later legally requested her to return their payment of £100,000 as she had regained weight soon after the fitness DVD's release.
