Curtis Pritchard opens up about struggling with body image after Love Island fat-shaming

Curtis Pritchard has opened up about the fat-shaming he faced while partaking in the summer series of Love Island.

The dance pro is reported to have gained two stone in eight weeks while courting Amy Hart and Maura Higgins.

The dancer has signed up as an ambassador for WW, formerly known as Weight Watchers, to begin a weight loss journey after facing criticism for his softer physique.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, he said: “I’ve wanted to get a healthy lifestyle because my eating has been up and down all the time.”

“I’ve been fat-shamed in the villa, and this and that.”

Curtis described the criticism he faced as bullying.

“Obviously it’s not very nice, it does affect you slightly, and that shouldn’t be happening in this day and age but, it was sort of good for me… it means I can live that healthy lifestyle now.”

He also explained that he feels that men are not as open about weight loss or gain as women.

“Men I would say do cover up issues about weight a lot more than women.”

“I would say it makes you feel emasculated basically, it just makes you feel small.”

Curtis previously told Metro that he found the fat-shaming “ridiculous.”

“Obviously, coming out of the villa I was fat-shamed by the papers. Can I just say, in 2019, I think this is ridiculous. People shouldn’t be fat-shamed,” he told the publication at the time.
