Was Kym ‘fat-shamed’ on Popstars?

Sadly this appears to have been the case. Kym was told she needed to lose weight by one of the show’s judges Nigel Lythgoe.

And he even compared her to a “Christmas goose”.

Kym was just a size 12 back then, and had two young children.

She later told the MailOnline that Nigel’s words were extremely humiliating.

The celeb explained: “I’d always been quite body confident until that moment but when he said that it really affected me, I couldn’t even look at myself in the mirror.”

Yet Kym finds the term “toy boy” offensive and has also defended their age difference.

Taking to her OK! magazine column last year, she penned: “I’m with a younger man. Scott is 32 and I’m almost 44, I hate when people describe him as my ‘toy boy’, as I think it’s patronising to him!”
