Caroline Flack has revealed the heartbreaking effect being bodyshamed had on her.
The 36-year-old has recently stepped up her fitness game in a big way, and is looking happier, healthier and more confident than ever.
But back when she was co-hosting The X Factor alongside Olly Murs, she became the target of cruel jibes about her weight and body. And it took her to a very dark place.
Speaking to Notebook magazine, Caroline confessed: ‘When I was doing X Factor I actually had a consultation for liposuction.’
This actually breaks our hearts.
Caroline continued: ‘I had to get the plastic surgeon tickets to the show and he came into my dressing room and I stood there while he inspected me.’
Thankfully, however, the plastic surgeon had other ideas about how Flack could improve her body confidence.
‘He took a good look at me and said, “You don’t need liposuction, you need exercise.” But he did offer me bum implants.’
LOL. Well, thank goodness she didn’t take him up on the offer – that body is gorgeous just the way it is!
At the time of The X Factor, the Love Island presenter was plagued with horrible comments about her weight, with some even suggesting she might be pregnant.
Retaliating on Instagram, Flack posted a message to her haters, writing: ‘Dear whoever ….I’m not PREGNANT . I like loose fitting clothing and I don’t dress for you I DRESS FOR ME!!!!! And it’s also very personal and very rude….. I’m off to eat 5 burgers!!!!!!’
