Zara McDermott shed 3 st following a simple diet – Made in Chelsea star before and after

Writing an open letter on her social media about trolling following weight gain, the model stood up for herself.

She wrote: “Earlier this week, a cruel Twitter post, dedicated to celebrities who had supposedly heavily edited their Instagram snaps, showed ‘before’ pictures of me from around October last year – shortly before I was signed to the ITV2 dating show.

“To some I looked better. I was a tiny size 6, but inside I was so unhappy.

“I wasn’t anorexic but hadn’t eaten properly and had been skipping meals for months.”
