Jacqueline Jossa launched a fierce defence of ‘f*****g boss b***h’ Charlotte Crosby after she slammed a programme about her plastic surgery.
The former Geordie Shore star spoke out against Channel 5’s Celebrities – What Happened To Your Face which included experts dissecting cosmetic procedures she has had.
In a statement she called the programme ‘immoral and insensitive’, and the broadcaster has since removed the show and apologised ‘for any upset caused’.
The ex EastEnders star shared a since-deleted post on her Instagram Stories backing Charlotte, saying she was ‘disgusted’.
She fumed: ‘There are on [sic] words. Do people in the public eye not get enough stick as it is, just for breathing at the moment…for a channel, a programe to do this to another human being, someone who has entertained us for years. I am just disgusted.
‘Can you imagine if this show came out at a time that Charlotte was in a really bad place mentally, already feeling awful about herself and struggling to get up in the morning (a place that a lot of people have been in and it’s not easy to spot someone struggling.
‘Imagine if that’s how someone felt and then there was an hour show shaming, slamming and mocking the way they looked.
‘Yes we all put ourselves out there, but no one deserves this.’
Jac praised Charlotte as a ‘f*****g boss b***h that will pick herself up no matter what comes her way’.
She added that she ‘really wouldn’t have coped well at all’ if a similar programme was made about her as ‘my head isn’t in the right place’.
‘Whatever happened to be kind,’ she concluded.
Charlotte has been flooded with messages of support since, which reduced her to tears.
Breaking down in an Instagram video, she said: ‘Honest I’m so strong, and I’m sitting here crying now. But I’m not crying about the negative things, I’m crying about the support.
‘I’m crying about how many people have been so kind. I just want to say thank you because you’ve actually made us feel like I’ve got a self-worth. Like I’m worth something. That’s how all of this support has made us feel.’
Channel 5 said: ‘Channel 5 and the programme’s producers, Crackit Productions, take duty of care very seriously.
‘While we acknowledge that the programme was Ofcom compliant, we have taken on board Charlotte’s feedback and removed the episode from our streaming platform My5. We apologise for any upset caused.’
