People are calling for LBC radio host Steve Allen to be sacked over comments he made about Tilly Ramsay.
Allen was speaking on his morning 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: "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."
Tilly - who is the daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay - slammed the comments, and now people are calling for Allen to be sacked:
Where a 67 year old gets off fat shaming a teenager is disgusting.... What if it were his daughter or granddaughter? Sack Steve Allen please. Bloody horrible man. #lbc

@LBC so you condone Steve Allen's body shaming comments? Standards have definitely dropped at that place. Either get him to apologise or sack him - he has no right to speak out that way

It's on the front pages of some of the papers! Surely #lbc will have to act over resident misogynist Steve Allen now? pic.twitter.com/IdL1v7L8i8

I really hope @LBC are going to do the right thing and sack Steve Allen for his disgusting comments this morning. Such horrible and completely untrue things said about a stunning and talented 19 year old girl. He should be so ashamed of himself.

In a post on Instagram, influencer Tilly said she would not tolerate people commenting on her appearance.
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."
She continued: "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."
