Countryfile's Julia Bradbury hits back at 'skinny-shamers' with new bikini photo

COUNTRYFILE star Julie Bradbury has hit back at “skinny-shamers” with a new bikini photo.

The 50-year-old proudly showed off her super trim figure as she enjoyed the heatwave – pointing out that her collar bones were "still" on show.

She told the haters: "Hey Skinny shamers … Hope you're enjoying the sunshine. My collar bones are still sticking out…& I ate chips!#skinnyshaming #sunshine #nohate #heat #heatwave”

The presenter was inundated with supportive comments after previously being trolled over her images.

The mum-of-three previously told The Sun she was in fact a healthy weight – despite the nasty comments.

She told us: : “For those of you genuinely concerned: I’m 5ft 9 inches tall (1.75mtrs) & weigh 9 stone 6 lbs. According to the NHS BMI indicator my BMI measurement is 19.5.

“The healthy weight range for my height is between 8st 13lb and 12st 1lb. So I’m a healthy weight.

“For those of you just trolling: How do you rate?”

Julia, who currently hosts countryside walks show For The Love Of Britain on ITV,  also revealed how she felt getting the comments, with some cruel carpers even suggesting she’d had cancer treatment.

She revealed: “One of the comments said, ‘She looks like she’s come out of a chemotherapy session’. That was the thing that surprised me — the vitriol.

“They asked, ‘Have you had chemotherapy?’ Absolutely not. I do not have cancer.

“Initially it just makes you feel very sad. Then online, very quickly, that skinny shaming became just nastiness which rolls into lots of very personal comments which have nothing to do with the original post.

“But positive body image for women over 50 is so important, so I will carry on doing what I’m doing. I’m not going to stop for the haters.”
