Josie Gibson slammed a fat-shaming troll who called her weight gain "vile".

Famously the reality star has struggled with her weight during her time in the spotlight, going from size 20 to a size 8.

Big Brother's 2011 winner, 35, had no shame on calling out a keyboard warrior for their rude remark about her weight gain.

In a Twitter firestorm, the TV personality delivered a sassy response for her 336.7k fans to see.

She wrote: "But you are being rude, so you do mean to be rude.

"Don't let my weight gain break your heart, honestly there is so many more things in the world to care about that really do matter."

Josie retaliated to a troll's vicious comment targeting her on social media.

The message read: "I don’t mean to be rude but @Josiestweet is absolutely vile.

"It breaks my heart when I look at how fat she has got again."

Just earlier in October, Josie revealed she was happy with her body and celebrated her figure after years of "hating it".

She wrote on Instagram at the time: "I've spent years hating my body, it's been the laughing stock of magazines and social media posts.

"I've got to a point in my life where I absolutely love my body and everything it does for me. Yes I want to make some home improvements but it's like decorating the house you love."

First Josie was spurred on to lose weight when unflattering pictures of her on the beach surfaced in 2013.

The bombshell admitted the photos shocked her so much as she called herself "a total beast".

She told Closer magazine at the time: “The last thing I expected was to get photographed and, as far as I’m concerned, I look like a total beast.

“I was in denial about how big I’d got, but those pictures really brought

it home. I couldn’t believe it when I weighed myself and realised I was 14st

and a size 16.

“I’ve always been a yo-yo dieter, but when I saw those photos I was really

horrified. I knew I had to tackle my weight again.”

Josie lost six stone in just more than a year.

In September 2018, the blonde welcomed her son Reggie-James with her ex-boyfriend Terry.
