Michelle McManus hits out at Vicky Pattison for body shaming her

She's apologised unreservedly

Former Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus has slammed Vicky Pattison for body shaming her after the former Geordie Shore star’s epic Instagram rant about trolls doing the same thing to her.

The 38-year-old singer shared a screenshot of Vicky’s post in which she called out critics for "body shaming" her at her sister Laura’s wedding alongside a screenshot of an article from 2014 which read: "'There’s a Michelle McManus inside me dying to get out!' Vicky Pattison gorges on pizza and chips despite her ‘constant fear’ of gaining weight."

Michelle captioned the tweet: "Yes @vickypattison because you’ve never publicly body shamed anyone have you? Oh wait…"

The I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here winner had posted a long rant after being accused of trying to upstage her sister by standing in front of her in her wedding photographs.

She wrote alongside a video of herself in a bikini: "Soooooooo, I’m sorry to whinge and have to post this but I’ve had about enough of online bullies, body shaming, trolling and negativity! And I’m hoping this will silence everything.

"Attending my sisters wedding yesterday was beautiful – but let’s face it, I’d have to be dead inside to not wonder about what was meant to be of my future and feel a little sad and hurt. But none the less, I couldn’t have been happier for her and @dannya2008!

Because you’ve never publicly body shamed anyone have you? Oh wait…

"The implication that I would somehow try and steal the limelight from her on her big day has hurt me so much."

She added: "To add insult to injury I’m now being body shamed over some unflattering pap pics and I can’t believe we’re still on this hype in 2019."

Soooooooo, I’m sorry to whinge and have to post this but I’ve had about enough of shitty articles, online bullies, body shaming, trolling and negativity! And I’m hoping this will silence everything. Attending my sisters wedding yesterday was beautiful- but let’s face it, I’d have to be dead inside to not wonder about what was meant to of my future and feel a little sad and hurt. But none the less, I couldn’t have been happier for her and @dannya2008! The implication that I would somehow try and steal the limelight from her on her on her big day has hurt me so much. To add insult to injury I’m now being body shamed over some unflattering pap pics and I can’t believe we’re still on this hype in 2019. Anyway, watch the video, it’s all in there, I’m off to drink tequila and tell every woman I see that I think she’s smart, funny, pretty and important (the help styyylllleeeeee!!) LOL! I hope you all understand where I’m coming from here- and appreciate my honesty and are not just bored titless of my endless Instagram crusading 😂🙈😩 Sending love, lols and kindness from Mexico and hoping some of it reaches all trolls and tits a like 😂😍

Vicky, 31, who has made a name for herself releasing fitness DVDs, has since apologised.

She told the Daily Mail: "There are a lot of things I did five years ago that I’m not proud of. And to be honest I wouldn’t even recognise the girl I was back then.

"I can’t apologise enough."

Michelle’s fans also backed her up on Twitter. One wrote: "She can only dream of being as talented as you !!! Get her told Michelle !!!"

Another added: "Absolutely loving this Michelle!! Go girl!! And this proves 100% Karma is the queen of all [bleeps]!! An ugly heart and spiteful tongue will never be attractive even if she was cellulite free!!"
