Chanelle Hayes revealed her regrets at "not getting skinny like Cheryl" after she split from her ex partner Ryan Oates in 2017.
The 31 year old opened up on her weight loss after shedding two stone, but has recently faced negative comments about her body after bikini snaps of her emerged.
On Friday during an interview on This Morning, Chanelle broke down as she hit back at cruel comments about her bikini body.

Chanelle said, "Most people like Cheryl when they break up get so skinny, but then when I’m celebrating I’m thinking ‘Oh my god yay let’s go out for food!’ Everything revolves around food I looked at the photos and looked horrendous.”
She added: "It was extremely hurtful. Usually it’s water of the duck’s back. There is no need to go there, I am trying really hard, especially with two kids. I have the willpower of the sloth.
"It’s hurtful when people are like, ‘you know you can be slim and be a mum’. I know that, but it is hard!
"Most of the time I would be like, ‘get a grip of yourself’ but sometime it hits a nerve."
The former Big Brother star also vehemently claimed the photos were not set up paparazzi shots, despite admitting to staged pictures in the past.

She explained: "I've done that before – I'm a single mum, I like to earn my money however I can – but these pictures were a complete shock to me."
The mum of two vowed to lose weight after being left unhappy over birthday pictures of herself in November.
She said: “I felt disgusting and I decided this is it.”
