Jacqueline Jossa wants to see ‘more curvy ladies’ on Love Island as she shares bikini snap to say ‘thank you’ to her post-baby body and its ‘lumps and bumps’
Jacqueline Jossa has called out the lack of body diversity on this year’s Love Island, writing in an Instagram post that she wants to see more ‘curvy ladies’ on the ITV2 dating show.
Sharing a photo of herself in a bikini on Instagram on Wednesday, the mum of two hailed her own body, before insisting shows like Love Island need to ‘celebrate every size a little more’.
Looking stunning in a bright pink bikini in a throwback holiday snap, Jacqueline wrote alongside the photo: ‘If anyone is feeling a little gutted that they don’t look exactly like the insta models or love island ladies. Please know it’s so hard to love yourself for who you are and not find faults in many parts of yourselves.’
Speaking out: Jacqueline Jossa has called out the lack of body diversity on Love Island, writing in an Instagram post that she wants to see more ‘curvy ladies’ on the ITV2 dating show
‘Every single person has something they don’t love about themselves! I don’t look the same as I did before having 2 beautiful kids!’ Jacqueline, who is mum to Ella, four, and Mia, 11 months with husband Dan Osborne, continued.
‘I now have 2 amazing kids and I’m curvy! I didn’t used to love it. It was a big change from being 21 and slim, size 8 to all of a sudden a mother and a different body all together.’
Admitting she is now full of confidence with her figure, the ex EastEnders star, 26, declared: ‘I want to thank my body, my lumps and bumps for everything! I love you! Truthfully I honestly don’t really care what people think of my body because I love it! I’m still working on it but that’s okay!’
Fan of the show: Sharing a photo of herself in a bikini on Instagram, the mum of two hailed her own body, before insisting shows like Love Island need to ‘celebrate every size a little more’
‘I never thought I would feel sexy after Having 2 kids, thought it would be the end of the road for bikinis etc! Yolo !! Would be nice to see some more curvy ladies on love island this year They are all beaut and every size is beautiful! I just think we should celebrate every size a little more. Some men line a curvy gal.’
A huge Love Island fan, Jaqueline went on to defend the show in her Instagram stories on Wednesday, pointing out she didn’t understand the criticism surrounding contestants’ motives in going on the popular show.
‘Everyone just moans they want to be famous, yeah they do! Not in a bad way, who wouldn’t want to go on that show and come out with a fricking Boohoo deal and whatever else they get?’ she said.
Mum: ‘I don’t look the same as I did before having 2 beautiful kids!’ Jacqueline, who is mum to Ella, four, and Mia, 11 months with husband Dan Osborne,said
‘Everyone wants to hate on them when they’re living their best lives and they’re single and they’re doing what they want to do. Everyone’s got such an opinion, we’re all watching it and loving it.’
She later added that she felt the show was as much about celebrating personality as well as looks, arguing: ‘You know whats great about these kind of shows. It just shows that us as human beings it doesn’t matter how beautiful and fit you are if you haven’t got the personality to match it you ain’t gonna find love.’
Last week Jacqueline hit out at online trolls commenting on her weight and asking her if she is pregnant.
The former EastEnders actress took to Instagram to share her frustration at those who asked intrusive questions when she posted a bikini snap from a recent family holiday.
Happy: Admitting she is now full of confidence with her figure, the ex EastEnders star declared: ‘I want to thank my body, my lumps and bumps for everything! I love you!’
According to OK!, she said: ‘I feel like everyone has such an opinion on everything. They have an opinion on my relationship, that’s okay. It’s not your relationship.
Jacqueline continued: ‘They have an opinion on my weight. That’s okay, it’s not your body hun. If I want to take a picture and I’m happy with the way I look, so you should be too.
‘I’m not fat. I’m a size 10-12. I’ve had two kids. People are saying ‘are you pregnant again?’ I feel like you should raise people better than to ask if you’re pregnant.’
Jacqueline added people should think twice before they make comments about someone’s weight online.
She said: ‘I’ll tell you why, not just because it’s offensive and you’re calling someone overweight, but also you don’t know what someone’s going through or if they’ve been trying to get pregnant for four years and that might push them over the edge.’
