Mark Wright's sister takes to Instagram in defence of her holiday photos...
Jess Wright has penned a furious Instagram post in which she’s hit back at cruel comments made over her bikini body.
Mark Wright’s sister has been enjoying a summer holiday in LA this week, but after photos were posted online of her in a bikini (looking totally gorgeous, we might add), Jess decided to hit back over the ‘unflattering’ shots.
The 30-year-old former TOWIE star posted an ‘unedited’ video of herself in a bikini to Instagram, and wrote: ‘This is a video I’ve taken this morning having woken up to once again more invasive, unflattering and upsetting photos of me during a private holiday where I felt completely comfortable around family and friends.’
‘I’m posting this video because I feel the need to address this head on’, Jess continued, before adding that the pap shots taken without her permission were ‘unkind’ and were taken ‘in a horrendous light.’
‘This video is REAL, UNEDITED, NORMAL EVERY DAY LIGHTING and this is ME, flaws and all,’ the reality star added.
‘Body shaming is real. Not only are these photos hurtful but I feel they aren’t a true representation of me and how I look right now. Are they going to break me?…. Absolutely not.’
Jess then added that she felt that she’d put on a bit of weight recently, but was a ‘normal’ size 10.
‘I’ve enjoyed my past year and yes i’ll be the first to say I have put weight on, I have an extra couple of lbs I’d like to shift but I’m a normal girl and just like anyone my weight fluctuates’, she added.

‘I am by no means fat, I’m a UK size 10 yet I am being body shamed for putting on weight. #EveryBODYisbeautiful’.
We have to say, we think it’s a little sad that Jess even needed to defend herself – no woman should ever have to justify how they look in a bikini. But we applaud her bravery in hitting back at body bullies. And so did her fans.
‘You’ve got a fantastic body. What is this world all about? Ignore the haters’, one commented.
‘I’ve seen the photos in question and there are a lot of women who would be envious and still want to look like you in those pics’, said another.
Keep being fabulous, lady.
