Towie’s Fran Parman says she is ‘so happy’ after losing over a stone and hits back at cruel trolls in emotional video

TOWIE's Fran Parman has revealed she is "so happy" after losing weight as she hit back at cruel trolls in an emotional video.

She told The Sun at the time that she'd piled on 3st in weight during lockdown, going from 9st to 12st this year.

But Fran, 29, vowed to get fit as she continued to film the series and has now updated her followers on her progress on Instagram, saying she's lost a stone so far.

She told fans on her Instagram story: "Guys I've lost over a stone, over a stone now. I am so happy. So this emotion I am feeling right now I just want to show you and relate, I'm feeling like 'yay, I'm nearly there, I've nearly done it!"

Fran then became tearful when she read out a letter from a fan who told her she had saved their life by discussing being trolled.

Brave Fran said: "I'm probably going to get trolled again, saying I'm a liar, but I've got the proof. I keep doing these videos because last week I got an email from a little girl, the poor girl nearly wanted to kill herself because of you trolls."

She read out the letter, which said: "Last week I was about to end my life. I had it all planned out. I had one last time with my family and wrote a letter for my parents to find. Is started deleting all of my social media. Then I watched a video of you that you had posted about people being nasty to you and how you had overcome it. And it changed my mind about hanging myself."

Fran went on to address trolls directly and said: "See what you're doing when you're being nasty trolls? There is just no need for it. For the people who are getting trolled right now - hurt people, hurt people. Everyone is facing a battle. So please think before yuo speak. I aint staying silent no more. If it means saving little girls' lives.

"I'm not staying silent no more. I'm in it now.

On Monday Fran looked sensational when she posted a photo wearing a white dress showing off her slender pins.

The reality star smouldered at the camera, writing: "Brunching. Size 12 and proud but I’m sure trolls will say else 🤣❤️."

A number of fans rushed to show their appreciation, with one writing: "OMG you look AMAZING girl."

Another wrote: "You don't need to say your size, you don't owe anyone an explanation."

A third posted: "Forget what anyone else says, you look amazing."

The brunette beauty recently returned to our screens as viewers watched her break the ice with ex-boyfriend Diags.
