She has been wowing in the ballroom on Strictly Come Dancing, but one British radio host has taken aim at Gordan Ramsay's daughter Tilly by fat-shaming the teenager.

While discussing her turn on the dancing show, LBC host Steve Allen said: "She's a chubby little thing, isn't she? Have you noticed?"

"Probably her dad's cooking, I should imagine. Well she can't blooming well dance, I'm bored with her already."

And now the 19-year-old has hit back at Allen in a lengthy Instagram message.

While Ramsay acknowledged that public scrutiny was part and parcel of being a celebrity kid and in the public eye, she wrote that Allen's comments went too far.

"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 its own repercussions and I've been aware of this from a young age," she wrote.

"However I won't tolerate people that think it's okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone's weight and appearance."

The teen's Instagram was flooded with messages of love and support in response.

Packed to the Rafters star Rebecca Gibney also voiced her support, writing that Allen "needs a good kick up the bum" and that "for that one dimwitted twat – there are millions who adore you".

Go Tilly! You are beautiful inside and out.
