Fans express concern for 'skinny' Vicky Pattison in latest selfie

'You need some meat on you'

Fans have expressed concern over Vicky Pattison's slim physique after seeing her latest selfie.

The TV presenter and former reality star, 29, has lost around three stone in recent years, and posted a snap of herself in her underwear to her Instagram account telling her 3.6 million followers that she needed a reminder of how proud she is of her transformation after indulging whilst on holiday in France.

'#MotivationMonday.... As I scoff cheese, bread and pastry out here in France and watch the slow but steady demise of my waistline I remember that last week I looked like this... 😂💁🏻,' she wrote.

'Loving skiing and letting my hair down but still very excited to get back to see @viphq_essex next week, hit my @minivnutrition routine HARD and enjoy some @leanandcleanfoodprep meals!!! #NOM'

'Life is all about balance, remember that guys and never beat yourself up for enjoying something!'

Many of the posts on the image were positive, with users telling the I'm A Celeb winner that she looked 'hot' and 'incredible'.

'You can't not eat in France. The food is amazing,' one empathised, whilst another added: 'You look incredible!! Enjoy all the food 😍'

However, a small number of commenters criticised Vicky's appearance in the picture, suggesting that she may have taken her weight loss journey too far.

'U look ill!!! Way to skinny!' one exclaimed, whilst another agreed: 'Vicki you need some meat on you. X'

Although Vicky has not yet addressed the negative remarks on this picture, she has spoken out previously about maintaining a healthy weight for her height in the past.

'When I first started losing all my weight I became obsessive,' she told The Mirror in 2016. 'Because I was bringing out a DVD a couple of years ago, I was under pressure to be a certain weight at a certain time. In the end it was unrealistic for someone my height (5″6).'

'I ended up looking too skinny. My mum was worried. My face looked gaunt and I became obsessed.'

'I always had it in my head that I needed to be that weight. But when the DVD was over and I took a look at myself, my life and what I'd become I wasn't happy.'

'Aye, I looked good and I was fitting in size six clothes but I had no social life. I felt guilty if I had a Nando's or a night out with my mates. And that's not the right way to live.'

'In order to be happy and be healthy you have to enjoy your life and enjoy things in moderation. So I'll never do the same thing again.'
