    Fans praised Scarlett for speaking out, with one saying: ‘The size you are. Or the size you were. Or the size you will be. Whatever size lets you live your life and be happy in yourself. That’s the perfect size for you.’

    It wasn’t just fans who felt the need to voice their support for Scarlett, a number of individuals in the public eye did too.

    ‘You are beautiful,’ Loose Women star Nicola McLean said, while fellow TV presenter Gaby Roslin tweeted: ‘I’ll say it again and this time I’ll shout it! YOU ARE BLOODY WONDERFUL.’

    She wrote: ‘Never let media or other people define your size or self worth… I know it’s hard but you are amazing at what you do – by being you 💖.’

    Scarlett found fame while appearing on the Channel 4 show Gogglebox. She went on to win the 16th series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016.
