LBC radio station has been hit with 840 Ofcom complaints after Steve Allen dubbed Tilly Ramsay "chubby."

Earlier this month, Steve, 67, was slammed after he took to the airwaves to comment on Strictly Come Dancing star's shape.

He said on the radio: "She can’t blooming well dance. I’m bored with her already.

"She’s a chubby little thing, isn’t she? Have you noticed? Probably her dad’s cooking I should imagine."

Tilly, thedaughter of celebrity Gordon Ramsay, responded to the broadcaster in an Instagram post to her 1.1million followers, where she made it clear she would "draw the line at people commenting on my appearance."

"Please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19," she reminded the DJ three times her senior.

"I won't tolerate people that think it's ok to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone's weight and appearance. Love Tilly xx"

After his nasty words hundreds of people took it upon themselves to contact the UK's communications regulator Ofcom to lodge complaints against the DJ.
