Tweeting after the episode aired, Maya wrote: "appreciate your concern I am able and allowed to dress how I please. If you feel uncomfortable by my boobs sitting in my dress that's on you sis.

"We're all fighting for equality and similar treatment to our male counterparts. Dont let the side down by hyper sexualising my bod."

Her response was then echoed by a number of followers, as one person shared: "You're beautiful maya in whatever you wear and what makes you comfortable and confident is all that matters, people shaming and abusing need to pipe down! You do you and all that."

"Why is shit like this only ever said to girls with curves?" questioned another fan.

"I actually hate that I feel like I can't wear a low cut top/dress because of it attracting attention. Someone without chest could wear same thing and no one would care. We shouldn't care. Maya, you looked amazing!!"

Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer continues on BBC One at 9.45pm on Saturday (June 20).
