Strictly star Tilly Ramsay earned herself a whole lot more respect after standing up to a fat-shamer – and now dad Gordon Ramsay has had his say.
Since the story broke last week, Gordon fans have been desperate for him to wade in and tackle the abuser, shock-jock DJ Steve Allen.
The LBC mic hogger has described Tilly, 19, a ‘chubby little thing’, claiming she’d clearly enjoyed her dad’s cooking.
Tilly displayed a fantastic degree of grace and class – particularly considering her tender years – as she chastised the much, much older man for calling out someone’s appearance.
Tilly Ramsay makes a stand
She posted on Instagram: “I try not to read and listen to comments about negativity however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far.
“Steve – please feel free [to] voice your opinions, however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance.
Gordon, 54, kept his counsel for a week but has now spoken of his pride for his daughter.
“It made me feel very proud that she stood up and said, ‘I’m not taking this,'” he gushed during an Instagram Live interview.
“She is 19-years of age for goodness sake – bursting her a**e off and attending university by Zoom and learning the most extraordinary moves with Nikita [Kuzmin].
“I think it was a breath of fresh air that level of standing up and saying, ‘We’re not going to tolerate that.'”
The super-chef proceeded to open up on his own weight anxiety.
“It is a very sensitive issue whether you are a girl or a guy.
“I am someone who has always struggled with their weight and have to train, we eat all day. I pick, we graze, we are around food 24/7,” he admitted.
“If we don’t train I’d be 350-400 pounds – so all credit to her.”
