Curtis Pritchard admits he feels ‘belittled’ by cruel fat shaming comments

The former Love Island star has spoken out about the cruel trolling he received about his weight following his appearance in the villa.

Curtis Pritchard, 23 admitted that he's struggling with his body image after being fat-shamed by nasty keyboard warriors.

He explained the remarks have made him feel "small" and confessed he's always "fluctuated" with his weight.

The nasty swipes come after it was reported the professional ballroom dancer piled on two stone in eight weeks.

Daily Star claimed he asked producers to buy him new clothes, as the garments he packed no longer fitted.

Speaking to OK! Magazine about his experience with cruel trolls post Love Island, he said: "Men, I would say, do cover up issues about weight a lot more than women. I would say it makes you feel emasculated basically, it just makes you feel small."

However, shifting the pounds in a bid to combat the nasty swipes, Curtis has become the face of Weight Watcher's latest campaign.
