Vicky Pattison is "standing up" to her bullies and won't let them make her feel "ashamed" about her figure
Vicky Pattison is "standing up" to her trolls and won't let them body shame her.
The 'Geordie Shore' star refuses to be "ashamed" of her figure and says her imperfections make her who she is.
She said: "I don't want to be silenced. I'm not ashamed of my body and I won't let anyone make me feel ashamed of my imperfections. They make me who I am, they make me unique. Nobody is perfect.
"What even is perfect? If I have to stand up to every troll who criticises me weight or my shape, I will! I'm not just doing this for me, I'm doing it for every woman. I want them to know that whether they've got long legs, short legs, an enormous bum - whatever it is they're gorgeous and beautiful and they deserve to look sexy every single day."
The 29-year-old television personality has joined forces with Ann Summers to encourage body positivity and show that every woman is beautiful in her own way.
She added to The Sun Online: "It's a huge honour to be named as Ann Summers' brand ambassador. It's a brand designed by women for women - it really resonates with me. We're all beautiful in our way and the more I can spread that message the more I think we make a difference.
"So many women in this day and age are quick to pull each other down or be bitter. This is opposite to that. It's women standing together. No body shaming. It's strength and fearlessness. It's not about anything else but confidence and self-belief. We need a bit of self-love."
