Radio 1 DJ Snoochie Shy has been applauded by fans for speaking about her facial birthmark on I’m A Celebrity

The 29-year-old admitted she thought people would think of her as a catfish because she covered it up in social media photos for so long. 

Snoochie has a birthmark underneath her right eye and she said that appearing on I’m A Celebrity is the first time she’s shown her birthmark.

“One of my main things coming in here, and I said it to my mum and the guy I’m seeing, ‘I think people are going to think I’m a catfish. I’m not going to look like my Insta,’" she told fellow campmates Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge on last night’s (5th December) show.

“Insta is your best angles, you’ve got sick lighting, you’ve got make-up on. I don’t edit my face, but obviously I’ll put like… if I’ve got spots I hide it, with my birthmark I cover it with make-up,” she continued.

Later in the show, Frankie said in the jungle Telegraph: “I think Snoochie came in here thinking her birthmark was an imperfection. I don’t think she could be any further from the truth.” 

“I actually feel much better for being here and having my birthmark out,” Snoochie admitted in the Telegraph. “I know it sounds so stupid but I just feel like me and I think I’m just realising that even if people do say something about it, it says more about them than it does me.”

Meanwhile over on Twitter, viewers praised the celebrity for opening up about her birthmark and many said they didn’t even notice it. 

“Snoochie is so stunning and it’s sad she felt she had to hide her birthmark,” said one Twitter user.

“Snoochie's birthmark is actually very beautiful. It suits her so much #ImACeleb,” wrote another. 

Another Twitter user said she felt better about her own birthmark after Snoochie spoke out about her insecurities on the show.

“[I] relate to Snoochie with the birthmark insecurity, mine on my leg is my biggest insecurity and I’ve spent years covering it and having consultations about surgery. But it makes me unique. But it’s a long road to learning how to love yourself and all your insecurities #ImACeleb.”
