Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer 'upset' by fat jibes

Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Dani Harmer has confessed she's been upset by 'fat' jibes.

We're not sure how anyone can call the petite actress fat, as we seem to think there's barely anything of her!

Partnered with pro dancer Vicent Simone, Dnai has been struggling to keep up with her bigger celeb costars.

But despite that, the Tracy Beaker star has still been the victim of abuse from online trolls.

“It does upset me in a way. Everyone looks bigger than they are on the telly," Dani told The Sun today.

But she explained: “But I’m a size 6, so it’s a bit funny when people turn around and say ‘You’re fat’. I’m less than the size of an average woman.

“It’s ridiculous to say these things — but it’s just little girls who don’t know what they are talking about.

“It’s jealousy, so I try to take it on the chin and move on.”

You tell them, Dani!

The 23-year-old, who impressed the judges last night with her salsa, added: “It is surprising though, because I don’t remember being like that at school.

“I was never that body-conscious. But I guess it’s because magazines put so much pressure on girls by circling people’s cellulite and stupid stuff like that.

“We’ve all got cellulite — it’s a totally normal thing — so people should just deal with it and be happy with the way they look.”
