Romford’s Gemma Collins has responded to LBC radio presenter Steve Allen after he fat-shamed Gordon Ramsay’s 19-year-old daughter Tilly. 

While live on air, presenter Steve, 67, spoke to a listener about Strictly Come Dancing contestant Tilly and said: “She’s a chubby little thing, isn’t she? Have you noticed? Probably her dad’s cooking, I should imagine.” 

Taking to Instagram to support Tilly, Gemma said she was “so upset about the targeting of Tilly Ramsay". 

She explained that she was "attached to the story" following "cruel" things Steve had previously said about her. 

This comes as comments from the 67-year-old's Twitter account resurfaced including one published on July 28, 2014 which compared the former Towie star to a  “beach hut”.  

Another tweet, published on July 5, 2014 reads: “Poor poor Gemma, fat and boring, no friends apart from Bobby, known as little Ms misery. It’s all going pear shaped.” 

Tilly published a statement on Instagram which stated she won’t “tolerate people that think it’s okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone’s weight and appearance”.
