Katie Price Gets Trolled On Social Media After 'Body Shaming' Holly Willoughby

When you're a celebrity that has undergone a hell of a lot of body and facial transformations, you're probably not one who should be telling others about their appearance. I think there's a phrase about stones and glass houses but it's lost on me at the moment.

In an emotional and dramatic episode of Loose Women, Katie Price was particularly savaged on social media for her comments about Holly Willoughby.

As This Morning was still on, presenters Holly and Phillip Schofield threw to the Loose Women panellists for a classic, 'Here's What's Coming Up Next'. The camera panned to 36-year-old Price, who had a plate of Christmas cake and cheese in front of her.

After announcing that she's really not a fan of the festive dessert, Katie said: "Holly, I think you need to eat this because you're losing far too much weight."

Her fellow panellists laughed awkwardly and carried on before the camera came back to This Morning and Holly politely said: "Thank you very much."

Sure, some people might chalk it up as a joke with a jibe, but there are plenty of others who are annoyed at the shamming comment.

One person savagely wrote: "Katie price telling Holly that she's lost too much weight. Think she needs to focus on what she looks like. What fucking a mess."

Another added: "Well that was very, very RUDE of Katie Price #LooseWomen #ThisMorning she hates it when people body shame her but it's ok for her to body shame Holly."

Once Loose Women began, so too did the emotions for Katie, who discussed the death of television personality Keith Chegwin. Cheggers died of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis yesterday at just 60 years old, and Katie talked about how her mum also suffers from the incurable lung disease.

She broke down at one point and had to be escorted off the set by Ruth Langford.

Katie told the show: "[My mum] won't see Harvey's 18th birthday, all the kids. How can my mum die? I love her so much. I can't do this."

The 36-year-old also spoke of how hard she was hit when she learned of Keith's death, writing on Twitter yesterday: "I only spoke to him few weeks ago and he was giving my mum advice as she is suffering with the same lung condition my mum has which is IPF an incurable disease!

"He was such a very down to earth and extremely funny and absolutely loved his wife Maria and children so much!" (sic)
