Vogue Williams hit back at body shamers who made “ridiculous” comments about her weight.
The former Fade Street star (31) was pictured in a black bikini on the beach in Ayia Napa on Wednesday and the pictures landed in most newspapers and websites.
But the up-and-coming presenter posted a photo of her laughing aimed at those who commented on her weight.
“This one is for everyone who made ridiculous comments about my weight yesterday. Regardless of if I’m a size 6 or 26 it’s nobody’s business and nobody has the right to body shame me or anyone else,” she wrote.
“I’m 5’11 a size 8/10, 64kgs and 17% body fat, that’s my healthy weight and I’m not changing it for anyone. It’s no wonder so many people suffer with body image issues.
“Be careful with your words because next time you may get someone that is not as strong as me. Better still if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”
Vogue is currently filming RTE’s travel show Getaways, with co-host Joe Lindsay, and will be traversing around Europe over the coming weeks.
Williams is famously fit and takes her exercise regime seriously, working out six times a week as she sees looking good as “part of her job”.
“Most weeks, I train five or six times. I’ll always fit it in, even if it means getting up crazy early. I do lots of free weights and high-intensity workouts,” she said earlier this year.
“I do a lot of classes that incorporate the same types of training. You will never see me on the bike or treadmill for long periods of time; I just use them for one-minute sprints between sets.
“I stay focused on training because I see it as part of my job, and I hate the way I feel if I don’t train too. But of course I have days where I don’t feel like training and if I really don’t want to, I’ll just take the day off and train harder the next day.”
While the tv star has been busy promoting her new show, she has remained tight-lipped on ex-husband Brian McFadden’s reported new romance with British athlete Danielle Parkinson – a dead ringer for both her and his ex-fiancée Delta Goodrem.
McFadden said in July that he and his former wife of three years no longer speak, while she told Irish Tatler that they are still in contact, but it “isn’t fair on anyone” to discuss the relationship in the press anymore.
