Love Island star Kady McDermott has lashed out at actress Jameela Jamil over a comment she made about one of the newbies.
After a lot of talk about ‘curvy’ girls heading into the villa for the new series, The Good Place star Jameela, who has been very openly against celebs pushing slimming aids through social media, posted about Islander Anna Vakili.
The actress, 33, was making a point about diversity of body types in the line-up, but Kady didn’t like what she saw.
Jameela shared pictures of Anna and said: “The producers of Love Island think this slim woman counts as their new token “plus size” contestant? Are they drunk?”
Kady shared the tweet and said: “Who even said she was the plus size contestant? Maybe we shouldn’t be labelling women as anything and just letting them be who they are. Skinny/slim/curvy/obese who cares.”
She added: “People do realise the producers are going to be dropping AT LEAST 15 bombshells during the series. I’m sure one will satisfy as everyone’s “plus size” criteria.”
Kady’s telling off left people divided.

One agreed, saying: “I just feel sorry for this girl that she is being labelled as plus size when she probably doesn’t see herself as that & so she shouldn’t see herself as that!! Anyone calling her that are just cruel”
Another said: “It’s it just awful that she’s being singled out and referred to as ‘plus-size’ like she’s different from the other contestants when she has a perfectly normal body”
But some defended Jameela.
One told Kady: “The papers called her plus size – not Jameela!”
