Kelly Brook hits back at body-shamers before deleting bikini snap: 'I have thick skin - literally'
Kelly Brook has hit back at body shamers who trolled her over a bikini picture, insisting she's got a "thick skin - literally".
The 37-year-old former model and presenter found herself at the centre of cruel remarks from trolls after sharing a picture of herself wearing a bikini during a holiday in France, which she has since deleted.
One followers labelled Kelly "plump", while another added, "you got fat".
But Kelly has now responded to the snipes in the best way possible, taking to Twitter to respond after a fan praised her for making her "proud to have curves".
"I have thick skin – literally!” Kelly responded, before adding, "I have lovely smart people follow me on social media who I like talking with! I will not let the negativity of a few stop me sharing."
Kelly has become a role model thanks to her naturally curvy figure, revealing in a recent interview that her fluctuating weight means she is always between a size eight and a size 12.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Kelly explained that she ditched the low-carb Atkins diet plan after moving back to the U.K. from Los Angeles last year.
“It was easy to do when I was in Los Angeles because you’re so health-conscious out there, but as soon I left, my focus changed,” she explained. “It wasn’t so much on my diet and exercise regime – it was more on enjoying my life a little bit more.
I have thick skin!! Literally 😂👌🏻😘✌🏻😜 https://t.co/88HyJHsLcQ— Kelly Brook (@IAMKELLYBROOK) July 31, 2017
"My boyfriend is Italian and lives in France, so I cook a lot of pasta and we have croissants most mornings,” she told the newspaper.
“I’m more accepting of myself. You’re skinnier and toned when you’re younger. When you’re older, you have a few too many glasses of wine and too much chocolate cake.”
Kelly is currently in a relationship with male model Jeremy Parisi, who she has been dating for the past two years.
