Former Big Brother winner Kate Lawler has snapped back at cruel skinny-shamers who have been commenting on her posts on social media.

This is not the first time the 43-year-old has been on the receiving end of body-shaming comments, having previously spoken out when she was called 'too skinny' after the birth of her daughter, Noa, in 2021.

And yet again, the reality star has been forced to defend herself against cruel trolls.

Last Friday (8 September) the mum-of-one shared a selfie on Instagram with the caption: "You define beauty yourself. Society doesn’t define your beauty."

However, people were quick to comment on her appearance, with one person commenting: "I love you Kate but this isn't a good pic hun xx," while another added: "Oh dear Kate."

"Kate loves the attention… hence another one of these posts! Each to their own but I’d rather eat crisps and look like me!” a third said.

Someone else wrote: "No no no if she eats then she should look at her pics before she posts , I love seeing her content of her beautiful family but no no no this is not a message to young girls with eating disorders."

And another said: "Attention seeking yet again!"

According to The Mirror, Kate hit back in the comments and said: "What message do you think I’m trying to make here?

"As I eat a raspberry croissant for breakfast I’m genuinely curious to hear your reply."

And her fanbase were also quick to come to her support, with one writing: "She definitely eats and really well you clearly never watch her stories zip it."

"Everyone just needs to stop commenting on women’s weight - end of," a second wrote.

Another fan said: "Wow, people are just vile arnt they! Why are you all commenting on peoples bodies? The internet really brings out the worst in people doesn’t it.

"Kates awesome and so much more than her body. If someone’s bigger, they get hate, someone’s smaller and they still get hate! There is no ‘ideal’!"

Tyla has reached out to Kate's representatives for comment.

She posted a picture of herself wearing a black bra and knickers with the scar on her tummy visible.

Kate reflected on the 'planned, abdominal birth' she opted for, and documented her healing process.

“I’m proud of my scar and will never remove it permanently as it reminds me of one of the most special days of my life.

“This tiny red smile that I catch a glimpse of every day in the mirror still makes me feel in awe of what the female body is capable of.

“I also believe that if we can heal better, we’ll feel better and up until six weeks ago, my scar was very raised and quite dark."
