Yup. Anticipation is building.

But, amongst the excitement, there also appears to be some confusion following a snap of Georgia Kousoulou with her boyfriend Tommy Mallet.

It's been a soppy Sunday for us 😍🤗 #TOWIE

Having seen the photograph, a number of the 26-year-old’s fans seemed convinced that she might be pregnant.

Comments included: ‘Is she pregnant ????’, ‘Is she pregnant as she looks it in this pic’ and ‘My first thought also was that @georgiakousoulou is pregnant too!!!’

Sadly, some weren’t so pleasant, with a few followers leaving pretty nasty comments about her body. Not cool.

Family picture 😂😍 @towie is back soon 🙊 @itvbe Dress @houseofcb Glam @makeupbymikey

Thankfully, a few others jumped to her defence. One fan wrote: ‘How rude are some people. You look lovely 😊 …’

Another added: ‘Body shaming at it’s finest .. some of these comments are just bang out of order!’

Throwback to this time last year @jasonvale juice camp ❤ what a place ❤❤

In fact, Georgia herself waded in and explained: ‘Wow !! It’s because the photographer was sitting down and I’m half to the side ! Prob just eaten guys 🙌’.

Taking to her own Instagram account, she posted a quote which read: ‘Girls don’t just simply decide to hate their bodies, we teach them to.’

Take note 🙌 Seen this quote & thought I would share as this message is so true & powerful .. so the full picture of me & Tommys towie shoot picture got put up on Towie's insta .. the first thing people asked was if I was pregnant or if I put on weight ..I jumped straight on the Defence & stated it was the wrong angle & the photographer was sitting down … plus i had just eaten … than I realised why the f**k do I need to justify myself to these negative comments .. but anyway I can handle the comments (sometimes) but what are we teaching the young girls growing up on social media ?!' I don't care what you say about me but PLEASE think of the girls / women reading them comments that think my body is good because there gonna than think .. " well if she's fat , I must be " please let's teach our girls and women that NO ONE is perfect & we need to start learning to love what we have.. life is hard enough , we don't need to spread body shaming or any kind of trolling … just ask yourself .. would I want my daughter / sister to read these comments ? I certainly wouldn't . Ps remember just because I'm on tv does not mean I have to be "perfect " because I'm NOT . no one is! I'm a normal 26 year old girl just trying to live 🙌

Touching on the fact that she’d jumped on the defensive, she said, ‘I realised why the f*** do I need to justify myself to these negative comments [sic]’, before adding: ‘I can handle the comments (sometimes) but what are we teaching the young girls growing up on social media ?!’

She continued: ‘…please let’s teach our girls and women that NO ONE is perfect & we need to start learning to love what we have.. life is hard enough , we don’t need to spread body shaming or any kind of trolling … [sic]’
