Strictly Come Dancing’s Tilly Ramsay hits out at radio DJ who called her a ‘chubby little thing’

Tilly Ramsay has hit out at a radio DJ who called her a “chubby little thing” live on air.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, who is the daughter of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, took to Instagram on Wednesday to call out London Broadcasting Company presenter Steve Allen for his comment.

The 19-year-old wrote: “I try not to read and listen to comments and negativity however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far.”

“Steve please feel free voice your opinions however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance. It’s such a shame that someone is trying to make such a positive experience negative.”

“This isn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last comment made about my appearance and I accept that and I’m learning to accept myself.”

“But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19 and I’m so grateful for all the amazing opportunities I have been able to take part in and I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with it’s [sic] own repercussions and I’ve been aware of this from a young age.”

“However, I won’t tolerate people that think it’s okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone’s weight and appearance,” she concluded the post, which she captioned “#bekind”.

Tilly was inundated with messages of support from her celebrity friends.

McFly star Tom Fletcher, who is also competing on Strictly, commented: “What the actual hell?! Tilly you are absolutely BEAUTIFUL and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise. ❤️”

Tom’s wife Giovanna, who won I’m A Celeb in 2020, wrote: “I just gasped so loudly at his comments. There are many words to use for him, however he is irrelevant and not worth it. YOU are sunshine. YOU are welcoming, bubbly, fun, kind, sweet, and endearing. YOU are beautiful from your head to your toes and the inside out. Keep doing you! Xxxx”

Strictly pro dancer Dianne Buswell added: “Tilly your a beauty inside and out . I think your so brave to speak up about this perfectly said I hope people learn from this 🙏♥️ just know that we all support you and think your wonderful xxxx”
