One person said: ‘Your words are harmful. She is naturally skinny, and women come in all shapes and sizes. Stop commenting on other people’s bodies it is not OK.’

While a different follower put: ‘Why do you feel the need to pass judgment on another women’s body. 

‘Honestly we as women are all different and all perfect in our own way and no one should ever feel the need to drag another women down, there are enough men out there doing that for us!

‘#supportwomen #bekind #perfectthewayweare. You look fantastic Laura,fit, healthy and happy.’

Earlier this year, Laura, who propelled  to fame on the 2018 series of Love Island as a 29-year-old air hostess, spoke about the trolling she has received since the show.

The reality star, who was one of the oldest singletons on the series, said she has also been trolled relentlessly about her age.

In an interview with The Sun, the television personality revealed the fickle side of fame and detailed how she’s lost out on jobs to her peers due to being ‘past it’.

Speaking about the hate she gets regarding her age, Laura said: ‘I get called a “wrinkly, washed-up has-been” or they’ll say, “You don’t look a day over 50”, tell me I’m “past it” or ask, “Why are you in a club? Go home, Grandma”.

‘If I’m pictured with a guy, they’ll say I look like I could be his mum. There is this obsession with age and so much judgment over a woman’s appearance, which men simply don’t get.’

Laura continued: ‘I just hadn’t experienced ageism before. But on the island it became very apparent that I was the older girl.’

During her stint on the ITV2 show, the Scottish beauty said she was horrified when her father had to get her birth certificate to prove she wasn’t lying about her age.

And following her exit, Laura said she was constantly compared to her female co-stars who ‘would definitely get jobs over me because they were younger’.

Laura said she was dropped from a high fashion brand campaign, which many Love Islanders go on to work with, because her ‘age didn’t fit the demographic’ and because she ‘wouldn’t get any younger’ the retailer couldn’t commit to working with her.

The reality star admitted the feedback, delivered by her agent, made her feel ‘ashamed of my appearance and years on this planet’.

Only recently, Laura moved into a new home with her boyfriend Dane Bowers in Dubai after the couple rekindled their romance.
