Alison Hammond has said she is frequently trolled over her weight and that even if she dies “a little bit sooner” she is going to live a “fantastic life”.
The This Morning presenter, 47, said she can’t understand why trolls feel the need to comment on her weight and that she is OK with “taking up a little bit of space” in the world.
“I saw a message yesterday from someone, something along the lines of, 'I need to lose 40 stone’,” said the TV star.
“I was thinking, 'I'm not even 40 stone. That would mean I'd be nothing. I'd be dead.' Stupid woman.
"I get it all the time. I know I'm overweight, everyone can see I'm overweight. It's not a surprise to know I'm overweight.
"Why do people feel that they need to tell me something that is so blatantly obvious?”
Kelly said it was important to see people of all shapes and sizes on television.
Hammond agreed, and went on: "Also Lorraine, none of us are getting out of this. We are all going to die eventually.
"I might die a little bit sooner, but do you know what? I'm going to live my life to the fullest.
"And if I do die sooner, I'm going to have a fantastic life. I'm going to have a wonderful life.”
"We're all going to die eventually, but I'm going to enjoy my life,” added the star.
“I'm going to eat nice food. I'm going to try to eat a little bit healthily, because you know, sometimes my knees do hurt. So I will try my very best."
The presenter, who co-hosts This Morning with Dermot O'Leary, also said she sees herself as someone who overcomes things.
