Jennifer Ellison was beaming as she headed into ITV studios to appear on Lorraine yesterday.
The 32-year old wore a white embroidered tunic and a pair of jeans, looking effortlessly stylish, and she spoke passionately about her show Dance Mums, which follows Ellison’s Dance Academy girls as they take on the competitive world of dance.

Jennifer compared herself to a “boxing referee” when describing the girl’s mothers, explaining: “The children are a delight, every single one of them. I love them all and I want to take them home.”
“But the mums, I’m trying to teach. I want to keep them at bay and keep them in the dog house.”
It seemed that Ellison could soon add ‘boxing’ as one of her skills on her CV too, as she defended herself against a body-shaming troll on Twitter following her appearance on television.
The Former Brookside babe was labeled “ugly” and was accused of succumbing to a “middle-aged spread” by one user…
The feisty blonde decided to respond directly, tweeting: “#UGLY!!!! Lovely words from ANOTHER WOMAN!!!!!” All sarcasm intended.

Sadly, this wasn’t the only criticism that she faced with others claiming that the star was “unrecognisable” and that they were “stunned” by her size.
Thankfully, the ex-model managed to turn a blind eye to those comments, insisting to The Mirror: “I don’t care about trolls. What I look like is not a priority. My husband still looks at me the way he did when I was nine stone, after doing my fitness DVD. I’m happy and feel so loved.”
She confidently added: “He thinks I’m the sexiest woman in the world.” Just another of her accolades!
Jennifer has previously opened up and shared her struggles with her weight but recently admitted that her priorities have changed since becoming a mum, she now focuses on her young sons Bobby, 5, Harry, 2, and Charlie, 1.

She told OK! Magazine: “I used to be obsessed with what I looked like, always in the gym, and now I just don’t care – there are other priorities.”
“I want the boys to look after themselves but they don’t see us spending hours getting ready. We’re more like: ‘Let’s go out for the day.’ It’s about making memories.”
Sounds good to us, Jen!
