She told host Lorraine Kelly: "It’s a weird one, isn’t it? I am not really offended by plus size, I just don’t really know why it has to be addressed.

"I just think it’s not really fair for people who are a size 14, 16, 18, living their best lives, that they start then comparing to a size 12 body thinking, ‘but if that’s plus size then what am I?’

"It’s just so ridiculous. Two different size 12s could be a massive difference in actual weight, different in height...It just doesn’t mean anything.

"I always like to go a bit bigger in jeans because I like a bit of room.”

She addressed being labelled plus sized on Instagram last month: "Yesterday I got quite a few DMs of people saying to me, 'You're not plus-sized, why do you call yourself plus-sized. I'm much bigger than you, how do you think that makes me feel?'

"Understood. I don't call myself plus-size. I'm not plus-size. I'm like, size 12."

She also said on her Instagram Story: “I just want to quickly say something that's been annoying me for a little while.

"When I do an interview at the moment all that people bring up is like you're such an inspiration for the bigger girl, you are real… and I'm absolutely happy for that, love it, no problem at all.

"But it's kind of insulting because they're like, 'How do you stay so positive, body confident and look like that?' is basically what they are saying to me.

"It’s like, nooooo, you can't say that!"
