EastEnders and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! star Jacqueline Jossa has jumped in to back Charlotte Crosby up after the Geordie Shore star hit out at a plastic surgery documentary about her.

Last week, Channel 5 aired Celebrities: What's Happened to Your Face?, a show that Charlotte first heard about over a year ago and tried to get them to pull over the damage it could do to her mental health, something she has talked openly about struggling with.

Following on from Charlotte's own post, Jacqueline wrote on Instagram that: "There are no words. Do people in the public eye not get enough stick as it is, just for breathing at the moment... For a channel, a program to do this to another human being, someone who has entertained us for years. I am just disgusted.

"Can you imagine if this show came out at a time that Charlotte was in a really bad place mentally, already feeling awful about herself and struggling to get up in the morning (a place that a lot of people have been in and it's not easy to spot someone struggling) imagine if that's how someone felt and then there was an hour show shaming, slamming and mocking the way they looked.

"Yes we all put ourselves out there, but NO ONE DESERVES THIS," her post continued.

"We are lucky she is a f***ing boss b**** that will pick herself up no matter what comes her way. @charlottegshore I am so so sorry you had to deal with this. If I'm honest if this has happened to me I really wouldn't have coped well at all as my head isn't in the right place. What ever happened to be kind."
