The great 'free the nipple' campaign continues.

Amanda Byram is the latest celebrity to fall victim to Instagram's strict no nudity policy with her photoshoot from Women's Health magazine being cut by the photo sharing site.

The Irish tv presenter yesterday featured in a special 'body issue' spread for the fitness magazine alongside Millie Mackintosh, Zoe Saldana and Kimberly Wyatt and spoke of her healthy attitude to body image.

The black and white photo featured the Castleknock native posing entirely nude in order to show off her muscle definition.

But the star tweeted last night that her image had been censored by the site, saying: "And there ya have it. @instagram deleting my #fitnotthin pic in @UKWomensHealth because it is "violation" #sigh."

Amanda said in the feature that the photograph and message of the article is important.

"I trained for two months with Dalton Wong to promote a very important message - fit not thin, in Women's Health UK tomorrow. Some very powerful images," the TV 
presenter wrote on Twitter last night.

The model, who is known for her advocacy of health over thinness, recently said: "If there is one thing I've learned it is that strong is better than skinny."

Amanda who turned 40 last year said she feels better now than she did at 30.
