"I've seen so many comments telling me to get my teeth fixed, and they've been heard. Loud and clear. I've actually been unhappy with them for years, but I haven't really been in a position to get them sorted out.

"I know it's probably difficult to see me as a person when all you know about me is what you've seen on TV, online and when I pop up on your social media feed.

Like everyone, I have my insecurities.

"To you, I'm probably just a picture or a video... but the reality is I'm just an ordinary girl from Worthing whose dreams are coming true."

Amy - recently reported to have been on 'a string of dates with' Toby Anstis - went on to plead for "a bit consideration" when followers leave comments on posts.

"I have a mirror, I know what I look like - and I'm happy with it. But, like everyone, I have my insecurities," she concluded.

Meanwhile, Amy recently quit her British Airways job after eight years because of how recognisable she is after appearing on the ITV2 dating show.

She said on Instagram: "I can't work there anymore because I'm there to be in charge of the safety of the whole plane.

"Right now that just wouldn't be attainable because people would be... this isn't me sounding like everyone thinks I'm amazing because it's not that at all.

"People would be filming. People filmed us when I hadn't been on a TV show that millions of people watched.

"People would be filming and people would be trying to pick up on everything that I did wrong. Not that I ever did anything wrong."

To everyone who has taken time out of their day to point out my flaws - thank you. I know you probably think that the comments you make about my appearance don’t get read, well they do - and they hurt. Not just me, but my friends and family, too. I’ve seen so many comments telling me to get my teeth fixed, and they’ve been heard. Loud and clear. I’ve actually been unhappy with them for years, but I haven’t really been in a position to get them sorted out. I know it’s probably difficult to see me as a person when all you know about me is what you’ve seen on TV, online and when I pop up on your social media feed. To you, I’m probably just a picture or a video... but the reality is I’m just an ordinary girl from Worthing whose dreams are coming true. The vast majority of comments I receive are absolutely lovely - and I read them too.. so thank you! I guess what I want to say is… just have a bit consideration when you’re leaving comments on people's posts - whether they have 1 follower or 1 million followers. I have a mirror, I know what I look like - and I’m happy with it. But, like everyone, I have my insecurities. Amz xo
