Earlier this year, Shaughna had to clap back at a troll who accused her of editing her photos on Instagram.
She was forced to tell her fans that a poor dress choice meant she looked ‘podgy’ on an episode of Aftersun, after being accused of editing her images.
She told the Instagram user that knew that she ‘wanted to scream’ when she saw the episode but explained her dress choice and why her body didn’t look the same was because she didn’t have time to rearrange her dress.
Shaughna has spoke at length previously about editing images and this time responded to a comment. She penned: ‘Honestly I saw aftersun the next day and wanted to scream’

Lipoedema, the condition causing thick, long and painful thighs
Lipoedema is a chronic condition typically affecting the legs and thighs.
The build up of fat is not caused through obesity, and diet and exercise have little impact on the condition.
Research suggests it is caused by hormonal changes such as those coming at pregnancy or puberty.
It is typically treated through liposuction.

She explained that because she was sitting down the red ruched dress didn’t look as good as it could have done if she was standing.
‘Also as it was live tv we literally watched England’s last penalty and then ran on set ready to go live, I wasn’t able to look in a mirror or fix my dress.’
She confirmed: ‘The time difference between aftersun and this picture is literally a week, I’m the same size in both (10/12), so let’s just live our livesssssssss!’
Shaughna underwent liposuction on her legs in September 2020 after discovering that she suffered with lipoedema.
And speaking exclusively to MailOnline last month, Shaughna Phillips revealed that her mum, Tracy, followed her around with a mop during her ‘messy and long’ recovery from surgery on her legs.
Speaking about the surgery she had on her legs last September, Shaughna – who suffers with lipedema – admitted that her confidence has skyrocketed but she does worry that other people don’t think there’s any significant difference.
She said: ‘I had nothing to hide about the surgery.
‘I would have felt like a fraud if I’d have turned up four, five months later with slimmer legs, and girls with lipedema be like: “oh she doesn’t look like me anymore.”‘
