| Last updated
Gordon Ramsay's daughter has hit out at a radio host who called her 'chubby' live on air.
Steve Allen was speaking on his LBC show when he commented on Tilly's weight and criticised her dancing ability after watching her on Strictly Come Dancing.
While taking the message from a listener, the DJ said that he was 'bored of her already' and that he thought she was a 'chubby little thing'.
He said: "Tilly Ramsay is on Celebrity MasterChef Australia, is she? Well she can't blooming well dance, I'm bored with her already.
"She's a chubby little thing, isn't she? Have you noticed? Probably her dad's cooking, I should imagine."
Well, the influencer has now slammed the comments, urging Allen to be kinder with his words, and saying that she won't let anyone make comments about her weight.
In a post to Instagram, the 19-year-old said: "I try not to read and listen to comments and negativity however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far.
"Steve please feel free voice your opinions however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance. It's such a shame that someone is trying to make such a positive experience negative.
"This isn't the first and definitely won't be the last comment made about my appearance and I accept that and I'm learning to accept myself.
"But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19 and I'm so grateful for all the amazing opportunities I have been able to take part in and I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with it's own repercussions and I've been aware of this from a young age.
"However I won't tolerate people that think its okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone's weight and appearance. Love Tilly xx."
Since posting the message, thousands of people have come out in support of her.
One user commented: "How quickly we forget what hurtful comments can do for someone's mental health. You are a powerful young lady.
"Wear your crown with your head held high."
Echoing the sentiments, another wrote: "Some people are very nasty. Don't listen to the crap... we love you, girl."
A third said: "You are beautiful inside and out, Tilly. Remember, people like him say those things because of their own insecurities and problems, don't listen to them and do you, because you are amazing, girl. We love you."
While another added: "What an idiot he is, Tilly. His type are and will always be around.
"Let them talk and keep dancing."
