Strictly’s Tilly Ramsay given ‘full apology’ by Steve Allen after LBC star ‘fat-shamed’ her in ‘chubby’ rant

STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Tilly Ramsay has received a “full apology” from LBC’s Steve Allen.

The Star quotes a source who explained: “Tilly has been given a full apology by Steve. He wanted to make it clear that he is very sorry to have upset her.

“It was sent privately because he didn’t want it to look like it was done for publicity.”

Steve, who often takes pot-shots at stars on his show – and once called Gemma Collins a “beach hut” on social media – came under fire from Tilly herself.

Speaking on air on Wednesday morning he told listeners: “She’s a chubby little thing, isn’t she? Have you noticed? Probably her dad’s cooking, I should imagine.”

Tilly hit back on Instagram, saying she would “draw the line” at anyone making fun of her appearance and adding that she “won’t tolerate” nasty remarks.

She wrote: “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.

“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.

“But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19.

“I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with its own repercussions and I’ve been aware of this from a young age.

“However I won’t tolerate people that think it’s okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone’s weight and appearance.”

Steve has not addressed the upset on his LBC show but Tilly received an outpouring of support on social media after posting her statement.

Several other stars have complained about things Steve said about them in the wake of the scandal.

Rebekah Vardy came out in support of Tilly saying he called her a “tacky old tart” and said she should have lost weight before wearing a bikini on I’m A Celebrity in 2017.

Tilly returned to the Strictly dance floor last night alongside pro dance partner Nikita Kuzmin.

They went out with some of her friends earlier in the week to a bowling alley with the young star saying it had been a “challenging week”.
