She famously dropped from a size 20 to a size 10 through sheer hard graft.
But now Josie Gibson has had her say on Katie Hopkins’ latest controversy after gaining four stone in a bid to prove that losing weight is easy.
Speaking to Star magazine, the 29-year-old Big Brother babe has let rip at the 39-year-old The Apprentice star – labeling her a ‘t**t’.
She told the mag: “Katie is an absolute t**t for what she’s done.”
Woah. Josie means business.
She continued: “People are built with one of two metabolisms, either metabolism A, or metabolism B. She wouldn’t know what it was like to struggle to lose weight.”
An incensed Josie then went on to urge Katie to ‘do her research’ as her mission to prove weight loss is easy ‘undermines’ a lot of people who struggle with banishing the bulge.
“Do you research before you go piling on the weight and losing it and undermining people who really do have to battle with their weight,” she explained.
“She’s really out of order, she’s very pig-headed and she’ll do anything for attention, the pig!”
Josie also reckons that Katie actually looks all the better for piling on the pounds as it makes her look like ‘less of a boy’.
Josie admitted: “She looks better. She’s got curves now, whereas before she looked a bit like a boy. She just plays the game, but we all love a villain, don’t we? She plays the game well.”
As to whether Josie will be watching Katie’s TLC show when it airs in January? Well that would be a resounding no.
She concluded: “No way, I wouldn’t give her the time of day. She just says things to get attention. I feel bad for even talking about her.”
