The I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! winner told her followers over the weekend: "Hey guys, I just want to address something. 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.“

Jacqueline added: "[An article] said I am embracing my new plus-sized model body or whatever it was.

"One, I'm not a model. Two, I'm not a plus-sized model. And I think they took what I said out of context from a story about four months ago.

"I basically responded to another article about another article, saying: 'Oh listen I keep getting called plus-size, it's not something I ever really thought that I was or ever felt like it needed to be addressed.' I don't see myself as plus-size, I'm not a plus-size model."

She continued: "If people do wanna call me plus-size I'm fully here for it because there's nothing wrong with being a slightly larger woman or a slightly smaller woman, whatever it is. So people take these things too seriously and put words in my mouth."

Jacqueline passionately insisted: "I don't ever call myself a plus-size model, nor do people I know. I'm not a plus-size model, of course I'm not.

"I'm not a model for God's sake. I hate the word plus-size, I hate it. I think it's just really s**t."
