What happened to his step-daughter Zoe?

Zoe shared her experience on Instagram following a recent modelling job.

In a now-deleted post, she explained: “So, today something happened to me for the first time since I’ve been modelling which I felt compelled to share.

“I had been booked on a yoga shoot for the afternoon and I noticed the client whispering about me to the stylist.

“The photographer and stylist were then asked to go for a chat and when they came back, the client informed me that they wanted a taller and skinnier model with less leg muscle. Despite the fact all of my measurements/portfolio images were supplied to them before the shoot.”

Furthermore, Zoe said: “The client had already left the room at this stage and didn’t have the courage to even tell me this herself or even to say goodbye which felt even more disrespectful than the whole ordeal itself.

“A few years ago, something like that would have absolutely crushed me and knocked my confidence for a long time but luckily I can honestly laugh about it now.

“Fair enough if you want a tall, skinny girl to model your brand but this beauty ideal that we have been drip-fed for so many years is outdated and does not relate to the majority by any means.”

Meanwhile, Dr Hilary’s wife defended her daughter over the “disgusting” incident.

Following Zoe’s post, Dee wrote: “So this happened to my daughter today and she has put this on her story. I’m so proud of how she has dealt with this situation but equally disgusted at this client.”
