Josie Gibson hits out at body-shaming troll who called her weight gain ‘absolutely vile’


JOSIE Gibson hit out at a body-shaming troll who called her weight gain "absolutely vile".

The 35-year-old star was clearly shocked by the cruel comment, pointing out that there are much more important things in the world than her body.

The mother-of-one shot to fame in 2010 when she won Big Brother, and has been open about her changing weight over the years.

But one Twitter user cruelly lashed out, writing on the social media site: "I don’t mean to be rude but @Josiestweet is absolutely vile.

"It breaks my heart when I look at how fat she has got again."

Josie retweeted the message and graciously added: "But you are being rude, so you do mean to be rude.

"Don't let my weight gain break your heart, honestly there is so many more things in the world to care about that really do matter."

Josie started her weight loss journey in 2013, famously slimming from a size 20 to an 8 after seeing unflattering pictures of herself at a beach.

She shed six stone over a year with a combination of strict diet and exercise - transforming from 16 stone 7lb to 10 stone 2lbs.

Josie opened up about gaining weight after she welcomed her son Reggie in 2018 with ex Terry - admitting that she "lost control" over her eating habits during pregnancy.

She went on to shift two stone in just 12 weeks after getting back on track, having gained four and a half stone when she was expecting.

Speaking about her weight gain, Josie said at the time: "I kept kidding myself that it was OK because I was growing another human."

But when her joints and knees began to ache the star was warned that she was at risk of type 2 diabetes, which encouraged her to get "healthy" for the sake of her son.
