Gordon Ramsay Hits Back At Steve Allen Over 'Body Shaming' Comments About Daughter Tilly

Gordon Ramsay has hit back at Steve Allen following his 'body shaming' comments about his daughter.

The LBC radio presenter had called Tilly a 'chubby little thing' during a recent segment on his show where he criticised her dancing.

Understandably, Gordon wasn't too impressed by the comments and has now slammed Allen, saying he won't stand by and let someone ridicule his child for the way she looks.

Speaking during an Instagram Live, the 54-year-old said: "It made me feel very proud that she stood up and said, 'I'm not taking this'.

"She is 19-years of age for goodness sake - busting her a**e off and attending university by Zoom and learning the most extraordinary moves with Nikita [Kuzmin].

"I think it was a breath of fresh air that level of standing up and saying, 'We're not going to tolerate that'."

Allen made his controversial remarks while discussing Tilly's performance on Strictly Come Dancing.

After 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."

Following the comments, Tilly came back at Allen, urging him to be kinder with his words, but 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."
