Katie Hopkins has incurred the wrath of Lily Allen by branding her "hideous" for gaining weight during her past pregnancies
Katie Hopkins has branded Lily Allen "hideous" in pregnancy.
The controversial TV star unleashed her claws on the 'Air Balloon' singer during an interview with heat magazine, claiming that becoming a mother involved the star "gaining two stone and looking pretty hideous".
Lily - who has daughters Ethel, three, and one-year-old Marnie with her husband Sam Cooper - was quick to retaliate, criticising Katie for placing so much emphasis on people's looks and explaining that she found comfort in food after tragically miscarrying her first child.
The singer wrote in an impassioned Twitter rant: "Yes, after tragically losing a child so late in my pregnancy I may have gained a few pounds, I am one of the many that find comfort in food.
"The two pregnancies that followed were terrifying because of what had happened before and I was pretty much on bed rest for 20 months.
"I wasn't exercising because I didn't want to take any risks, and funnily enough, the survival of my children felt more important than being thin.
"Can somebody tell me what Katie Hopkins does except go on telly slagging off girls half her age? PS Katie looks are obviously so important to you. There's always plastic surgery ya know. Maybe they could sew your mouth up while they fix the rest of you. (sic)"
However, it seems Lily had a change of heart as she has since deleted her tweets.
She added: "Sorry about that, but my babies are a touchy subject and I gave her exactly what she wanted by responding. I am now going to delete it all."
Katie also slammed "purple-headed dwarf" Kelly Osbourne and 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Gemma Collins, who she cruelly joked had received a "contributions to fat people" award at the National Television Awards earlier this month.
