Vogue Williams has revealed she broke down in tears after trolls sent her abusive messages criticising her body.
The model, 34, posted a series of paparazzi images that were taken of her and her husband, Spencer Matthews, while the pair were on holiday in St Barths with their son.
In an emotive post on Instagram, she described how people had emailed her about her “cellulite” after the photographs were published.
She wrote: “Today I cried about my body, something I haven’t done in quite some time because I had gotten to a point where I was happy with myself.
“These pictures were taken when we were at the beach, you can’t stop paps but I get it comes with what we do. What I can’t stand is the hundreds of people commenting and even mailing me about the pictures that show cellulite on the back of my legs.”
She added: “I usually let this go over my head but they were so nasty that I allowed it to really get to me. For a second I forgot how body positive I am, how happy I am in general and stupidly I allowed this to upset me. I just think that commenting on anyone’s body or appearance is so pointless and low.
“We are all different, none of us are flawless but that is what actually makes us flawless! Let’s be kinder to each other... PS I’m back to loving my bod, cellulite and all.”
She received support from several stars including Made in Chelsea star Sophie Habboo, Love Island 2016 star Olivia Buckland and Pussycat Doll and Heart Radio presenter Ashley Roberts.
Haboo said: “Vogue - you look out of control amazing!!!!! Jealousy is a very horrible thing!!!”
Buckland wrote: “Honestly I hate those comment sections. Your body is, but more importantly you are god damn amazing! I feel you though, sometimes they just get you. They’re so irrelevant though, must be so bored & sad to write things like that. Sending love,” while Roberts added: “You gorge woman.”
