Chanelle Hayes regrets 'not getting skinny like Cheryl' after cruel trolls bodyshamed her over bikini pics
The 31-year-old appeared on This Morning today after bikini pictures, which were taken prior to her two stone weight loss, emerged – leading to her being inundated with nasty remarks about her figure.
Looking very emotional, the single mum-of-two revealed she was shocked to see the images of herself and felt disheartened because they were taken before she started trying to get in shape again.
Speaking to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, she said: "I've always had such a horrific relationship with food and my emotions, even when I was a size 4-6 I would still eat so healthily…
"Most people like Cheryl when they break up get so skinny, but then when I'm celebrating I'm thinking 'Oh my god yay let's go out for food!' Everything revolves around food I looked at the photos and looked horrendous."
The criticism she received for her latest bikini snaps proved difficult to deal with.
She continued: “It was extremely hurtful. Usually it's water of the duck’s back.
“There is no need to go there, I am trying really hard, especially with two kids. I have the willpower of the sloth.
“It’s hurtful when people are like, 'you know you can be slim and be a mum'. I know that, but it is hard!
“Most of the time I would be like, 'get a grip of yourself' but sometime it hits a nerve.”
It was one meme in particular that upset Chanelle, which featured a twin-up of herself with Helen Flanagan in their bikinis – alongside the joke that one was before Christmas and the other after.
“If it was a cartoon that would be funny,” she said. “But I am a real person.”
Chanelle revealed she decided to lose weight after seeing pictures of herself on her birthday in November.
She said: “I felt disgusting and I decided this is it. I have got a deal with Celebrity Slim but I found themselves myself.”
The star is determined to turn her life around though and told the presenters: “Next time you see me I will be skinny and I may wear a yellow bikini for you!”
