Atomic Kitten star Natasha Hamilton hopes Katie Hopkins’s young daughters don’t “absorb her spiteful comments and end up with an eating disorder.”
The Scouse singer hit back after she was apparently branded “fat” by the controversial columnist who appeared on TV’s The Wright Stuff following her appearance in Celebrity Big Brother.
Mum-of-four Natasha says she was fuming – but only because it could upset other new mums who are struggling to lose their baby weight.
She said: “Really, I don’t care what Katie’s opinion of me is but I do care about the effect her vicious rhetoric has on other women who may be struggling to lose weight after having babies.
“They are under enough pressure without having to hear Katie’s negative critique on bodies. Her comments are irresponsible, especially as she was directing them at a woman who has just recently given birth.
“She should be more careful because she has two young girls and we can only hope they don’t absorb any of her spiteful comments and end up with an eating disorder.”
Natasha, who gave birth to her fourth child last year, told her Twitter followers that former Apprentice candidate Katie had called her “fat”.
She posted a photograph of herself in her gym gear, holding on to baby daughter Ella, and tweeted Katie to say: “Here’s to my curves and every other woman out there who celebrates their beautiful bodies of all shapes and sizes!”
Natasha, 32, admits she is proud of her size eight figure and says her boyfriend Ritchie Neville thinks she looks great too.
She says: “Five months after having Ella I am now a size eight because I have eaten healthily and have been exercising regularly. I am proud of my body, Ritchie likes it and I am a healthy mum who’s first priority was to breast feed my daughter.”
It’s only been a matter of days since Celebrity Big Brother ended, but Katie has also insulted Hollywood actress Uma Thurman.
The Kill Bill star hit the red carpet at the premiere of her new US series The Slap on Monday night.
Next to two snaps of Uma, Katie wrote on Twitter: “Uma, whatever the plastic surgeon said darling, he lied.”
