Jacqueline Jossa has declared she’s got fat “rolls” but she’s not “unhappy” with her body.
The former I’m A Celebrity star, 27, filmed a candid clip for fans in which she addressed her stance on being labelled an “an inspiration for the bigger girl“.
In the clip, Jac insisted that although she’s keen to inspire other women with her positivity, she finds it “insulting” when it’s insinuated that she shouldn’t be happy with her body.
She explained: “I just want to quickly say something that’s been annoying me for a little while.
“When I do an interview at the moment all that people bring up is like you’re such an inspiration for the bigger girl and I’m absolutely happy for that.
“But it’s kind of insulting because they’re like ‘how do you stay so positive, body confident and look like that?’ is basically what they are saying to me.
“I’m like nooooo, you can’t say that. Sure, I’ve got rolls but I’m not unhappy with my body.
“I am positive and I do think size doesn’t matter.”
Jac went on to insist women are held to different standards than men – as she’s convinced male stars are not forced to endure the same scrutiny over their bodies.
She added: “Do you go up to a male actor or reality person that’s not got a 12 pack and then say ‘Go you, well done you for just being happy and confident even though you look like that’ – they don’t get told.
“Being a man in this industry, they don’t get congratulated for being themselves.”
Jac has previously fended off suggestions she’s “plus-sized” – insisting she’s a size 12 and not a model.
In a previous Instagram clip, she said: “I got quite a few DMs of people saying to me, ‘You’re not plus-sized, why do you call yourself plus-sized. I’m much bigger than you, how do you think that makes me feel?’
“Understood. I don’t call myself plus sized. I’m not plus-sized. I’m like size 12.”
“[An article] said I am embracing my new plus-sized model body or whatever it was. One, I’m not a model. Two, I’m not a plus-sized model.”
“I don’t see myself as plus sized, I’m not a plus-sized model.
“But if people want to call me plus-sized, then I’m fully here for it, because there’s nothing wrong with being a slightly larger woman, or slightly smaller, whatever it is.”
She added: “I hate the word the plus-sized, I really do, I think it’s really sh*t.
I’m a size 12 and I don’t claim to be something different. I am not ashamed of how I look.
“I like my size 12 body and I like my size 14 a***, it is what it f***ing is. I’m here for it.
