Pop Idol star, Michelle McManus, has hit out at Vicky Pattison for body-shaming her in a past interview.
Vicky was recently criticised for standing on-front of her sister in a picture on the bride’s wedding day, but told fans that she was simply covering a stain on her sister’s dress.
The reality star also took to Instagram last night to slam online trolls following the criticism and said that she was body-shamed, after being photographed by a member of the paparazzi while in Mexico for the wedding.

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 😂😍
“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,” she told her followers.
The 31-year-old has now been slammed by Michelle, who tweeted a past interview Vicky did with the Daily Mail, 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.”
The singer shared the headline of the interview and wrote: “Yes @vickypattison because you’ve never publicly body shamed anyone have you? Oh wait…🤔🙄”.

Vicky has yet to respond to the singer’s tweet.
