Talking to her followers she said: “Just quite worrying actually, I keep seeing on Instagram new mums promoting extreme restrictive diets.

"What's the point of just giving birth and going on a shake diet, like meal replacement shakes and things like that? I don't understand.”

She continued: "Who's advising them? Who's suggesting this is a good idea? It really upsets me because when you've just had a baby you just grab whatever you can, for me it was tea, toast, coffee, and Ryan was amazing, he'd make me some nice meals most days.

"But other days it was just tea and toast and that was fine. You're so sleep-deprived the last thing you want is another pressure to lose weight straight away and go on a restrictive diet. Especially if you're breast feeding, you're not meant to do that anyway."
