Vicky Pattison apologises for ‘body-shaming’ Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus – DigitalSpy.com

I’m a Celebrity 2015 star Vicky Pattison has publicly apologised for body-shaming Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus.

McManus, who won Pop Idol in 2003, called out Pattison for an Instagram post in which she complained about internet trolls commenting on her shape.

After receiving some online abuse about her own body, Pattison posted a video defending herself and captioned it: “Soooooooo, I’m sorry to whinge and have to post this but I’ve had about enough of shitty articles, online bullies, body shaming, trolling and negativity! And I’m hoping this will silence everything.”

Soooooooo, I’m sorry to whinge and have to post this but I’ve had about enough of shitty articles, online bullies, body shaming, trolling and negativity! And I’m hoping this will silence everything. Attending my sisters wedding yesterday was beautiful- but let’s face it, I’d have to be dead inside to not wonder about what was meant to of my future and feel a little sad and hurt. But none the less, I couldn’t have been happier for her and @dannya2008! The implication that I would somehow try and steal the limelight from her on her on her big day has hurt me so much. To add insult to injury I’m now being body shamed over some unflattering pap pics and I can’t believe we’re still on this hype in 2019. Anyway, watch the video, it’s all in there, I’m off to drink tequila and tell every woman I see that I think she’s smart, funny, pretty and important (the help styyylllleeeeee!!) LOL! I hope you all understand where I’m coming from here- and appreciate my honesty and are not just bored titless of my endless Instagram crusading 😂🙈😩 Sending love, lols and kindness from Mexico and hoping some of it reaches all trolls and tits a like 😂😍

However, McManus accused Pattison of hypocrisy, claiming that she body shamed her back in 2014.

McManus shared a headline of an old article about Pattison, which read: “‘There’s a Michelle McManus inside me dying to get out!’ Vicky Pattison gorges on pizza and chips despite her ‘constant fear’ of gaining weight.”

Sharing a screenshot of the old article, McManus wrote: “Yes @vickypattison because you’ve never publicly body shamed anyone have you? Oh wait…”

Pattison has now publicly apologised to McManus via the MailOnline, stating: “There are a lot of things I did five years ago that I’m not proud of. And to be honest, I wouldn’t even recognise the girl I was back then.

“I cannot apologise enough if my comments caused upset or hurt. I can guarantee even then it was not my intention, just my ignorance. I hope you accept my apology.”
