Strictly Come Dancing’s Tom Fletcher defends ‘beautiful’ Tilly Ramsay, who has been labelled ‘chubby.’

Tilly Ramsay, Tom Fletcher’s Strictly Come Dancing co-star, retaliated after LBC radio broadcaster Steve Allen referred to her as a “chubby little thing” on his early morning show.

After a radio DJ referred to Tilly Ramsay as “chubby,” Tom Fletcher rushed in to defend her.

Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly, 19, slammed LBC’s early morning host Steve Allen for referring to her as a “chubby little thing” on air during his morning radio show.

CBBC presenter Tilly attacked his comments about her appearance on social media, and she’s received an outpouring of support from her Strictly Come Dancing co-stars.

McFly singer Tom Fletcher chose to show his support for Tilly by slamming the radio host’s conduct on Instagram, stating that Tilly is “lovely.”

Tom began by sharing Tilly’s stunning Instagram Story post in which she lambasted Steve Allen’s comments, along with a love-heart symbol to indicate his support for Tilly.

He then uploaded the rest of Tilly’s tweet, which included a video of her being dubbed “chubby” by the announcer.

“This is awful and utterly unacceptable,” Tom, who is partnered with Welsh dancer Amy Dowden, said with the image, as he praised Tilly, “Tilly, you are gorgeous!”

“I won’t allow those who think it’s alright to publicly criticise and scrutinize anyone’s weight and appearance,” Tilly wrote in her moving post.

She expressed herself as follows: “I try not to read or listen to negative comments, but being publicly chastised by a 67-year-old man on a national radio station is a step too far.

“Steve, please feel free to express your thoughts, but I reserve the right to comment on my appearance.”

She continued, saying: “It’s a pity that someone is attempting to turn a pleasant experience into a negative one.

“I accept that this isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last comment made about my appearance, and I’m learning to accept myself.”

“Words may hurt,” she noted, “and at the end of the day, I am only 19.”

Tom Fletcher’s wife Giovanna, who won I’m A Celebrity last year, was among Tilly’s renowned friends who poured their support into her.

Giovanna penned the following: “I just let out a loud gasp in response to his remarks. There are many ways to describe him, but he is unimportant and unworthy.

“You are the sun. You are hospitable, effervescent, entertaining, kind, sweet, and endearing. You are stunning from head to toe and on the inside. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
