Size 16 model hits back after friend was accused of editing photo to make her look bigger

Mirror logo Mirror 24/04/2017 Nicola Oakley

© ITV Kate Wasley and Georgia Gibbs are both models, they both live in Australia and they both enjoy going out for a dance on a Saturday night.

There's just one difference between the besties: one is a size 6 and one's a size 16.

Normally, this wouldn't be an issue.

But a comment on a recent Instagram photo of the two friends together on a night out shocked them so much, they've decided to do something positive about it and hit back on This Morning.

Where it all started ^ We posted this picture online, just as best friends going out on the weekend, it got reposted a lot and the controversy started.. You have photoshopped yourself thinner or your friend bigger, what kind of friend are you? Was one of the comments, it broke my heart because Kate and I are best friends why would I do that? The fact that a simple picture of two people together went so viral purely because of their body types shocked me... and @any.body_co was created because no one should have to deal with that and it shouldn't even be acknowledged, all I see here is two women.. not one "skinny" woman and one "curvy" woman, stop comparing everyone to each other and accept every person as beautiful in their own right. #loveanyBODY

Just a normal picture of two friends having fun on a night out.

But one person commented: "You have photoshopped yourself thinner or your friend bigger, what kind of friend are you?"

Speaking on This Morning, Kate told Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes: "Society has a little bit of an issue with two girls two different sizes being next to each other, and we want to make it a norm.

Exciting things are coming... 😍🤗👯💥 @ANY.BODY_CO #LoveAnyBODY

Instead of getting angry, Kate and Georgia have turned the incident into something they can use to help other women.

Georgia added: "All I see here is two women... not one "skinny" woman and one "curvy" woman, stop comparing everyone to each other and accept every person as beautiful in their own right."

In a post on Instagram promoting the launch of their 'Any Body' campaign, the caption: "We aim to quit the comparisons, believe in loving yourself and accept you are so much more than just your body shape.

The Any Body Instagram account has gained 137,000 followers in the space of a month - and it's rapidly rising.
