The Queen of the Jungle says she's not taking the hatred about her new body to heart.
Scarlett Moffatt refuses to be cowed by critics who insist she's now too skinny, saying she's exactly the size she's supposed to be.
Appearing on The Wright Show this morning, the ex-Gogglebox star revealed her weight loss has sparked a backlash of abuse from people saying she's now too small.
"People forget because they can't see me on the telly, but I am only five foot – I am only meant to have a small frame," she insisted.
Opening up about the most recent picture that kickstarted a wave of insults, the 26-year-old said she'd only put up the selfie on Instagram for a laugh.
The selfie that sparked concern from Scarlett's fans
"Apparently if you've got a big forehead you’re intelligent so I put it up as a joke, but people were like 'you've gone too far'," she told the panel.
It comes after Scarlett lost over three stone from overhauling her diet and embarking on a strict exercise regime, and in the process filming her bestselling DVD.
After last week's offering, one concerned fan wrote: "Please don't lose any more weight," while another added: "I don't want to hurt you look amazing but please don't lose any more weight."
Scarlett defended her weight, pointing out that she's only five feet tall
The comments came just days after Scarlett revealed to This Morning that she was once considered obese by doctors.
She decided to make changes after finding out she weighed nearly 12 stone.
Scarlett went to her GP with back pain and low energy levels. He later blamed the excess weight she was carrying.
The TV personality has since lost 3 stone
"It was hard for me, going home and explaining to my mum and dad why I went to the doctors and what was wrong with me," she said.
"They also tested me for diabetes type 2 because they said I could be pre-diabetic, and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm 25, I don't understand how I've got to this.'"
But it wasn't an easy journey. In a sneak preview from the DVD, the star can be seen at the start of her journey getting weighed.
When she finds out she weighs 11 stone 5lbs, she bursts into tears. "I would just say to anyone starting out [losing weight and getting healthy], just focus on the positives," Scarlett added.
