'You Should Feel Uncomfortable If You're Unhealthy' - Jamelia Slammed For Weight Comments

Singer Jamelia has come under fire for calling on high-street stores to stop carrying plus-size garments.

The former Voice of Ireland judge appeared on ITV's Loose Women this week, where the panel were discussing whether the availability of large sizes on the high street was normalising obesity.

Jamelia said that while all women should have good self-esteem and have access to "lovely clothes", people "should feel uncomfortable if you are unhealthyā€¯.

Her comments have been met with a backlash from Twitter users, who accused her of being "snobby" and "offensive".
