"I like being called too skinny!" Admits Charlotte Crosby
The Geordie Shore lass hits back at weight loss critics...
She's always been a worldie, but slimming down from a size 16 to an 8 has clearly done her no end of good when it comes to confidence.
And now the self-confessed selfie queen is hitting back at comments from fans that she's too skinny.
"I like being called too skinny," Char admitted in an interview with Closer magazine. "It's better than being called too fat!
"I know I'm not too skinny and I've lost weight healthily.
"It doesn't bother me what people say. I take selfies but so does every other girl my age. I like taking them and I'm not doing any harm."
She went on to criticise media outlets for claiming that her weight loss success has happened overnight, insisting that her hot bod is the result of hard work.
"In every interview I state CLEARLY that I lost weight slowly over a long period of time. I didn't drop three stone in a month like some articles claim," she said.
"People who have actually watched my journey have seen that it's actually taken such a long time over each series.
"But you can't just lose it overnight and I that they (the media) shouldn't be allowed to do that, it is very irresponsible."
Charlotte also revealed that her diet "goes out of the window" while filming the reality show, but she doesn't panic about losing her healthy habits.
"It's impossible to stay at my ideal weight, but even if I gain a few pounds, I'm always confident I can lose them," she added.
Charlotte isn't the only Geordie Shore cast member to jump on the healthy lifestyle bandwagon recently.
In an exclusive interview with MTV last month, her co-star Holly Hagan spoke honestly and openly about how difficult her journey has been, telling us: "It gets really irritating because I know the weight that I am now - I'm 9 stone 4, and I'm 5 foot 3 - if you look that up on the BMI scale I'm bang in the middle.
"To say that I'm underweight - girls read that, and then think 'Oh, well I have to be underweight to achieve that look'. It's massively irresponsible. There are so many young, impressionable people out there that just want the truth and people do believe everything they read.
"I do feel like I have a responsibility to say, 'Look, I've tried for four years to get down to this weight and it's only now that I feel comfortable.' I think it is important to say that the magazines are wrong and not let people believe that's the truth."
