The Celebrity Bumps star wrote: ‘Please don’t body shame. So want if you was huge until your daughter was 1? So what if I’ve lost weight? 

‘Why does this bother you I’ve done nothing but eat constantly since my daughter was born due to me breastfeeding and feeling hungry all the time and haven’t done any exercise due to me having a c-section.

‘I can’t help the way I look right now and I don’t care that my jeans don’t fit me, I don’t expect them to! And FYI I’d lost most of my baby weight within 14 days after giving birth, and I was really surprised. All our bodies are different.

‘Some of us have faster metabolisms than others. Weight loss due to stress exists and making rude comments when you have no idea what the mental state of a person is just dangerous and unkind. 

‘Check yourself and stop body-shaming, you’re setting a bad example to your daughter.’ (sic)

Writing in her Instagram story, Kate penned: ‘After the recent death of Nikki Grahame, I’d have thought people would think twice before body-shaming someone so publicly.

‘THIS IS HOW EATING DISORDERS CAN BEGIN. I have not and will not ever judge anyone for how they look after birth.

‘Whether it’s after one day, a week, a month, a year, five years. Everyone can think what they like but if they have nothing nice to say, stay silent.’

‘The pressure to have a routine and for her to be sleeping more, it makes me feel like a bad parent because we aren’t there yet.’

The former Big Brother star continued: ‘Still wishing I found this job easier and felt happier. Thankfully I had the handsome who has sent me to bed and is staying downstairs with her until 2am. I should get some shut eye.

‘Big love to all of my fellow new parents out there. If you’re smashing it well done, if you’re not coping well, stay strong.’ 

Kate has since revealed she has enlisted the help of a night doula – which can cost up to £140 a night – to help with the night feeds.
