Olympic gold-medallist Rebecca Adlington has tearfully revealed her body insecurity fears on I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!
Here a selection of ITV News viewers opinions on the subject:
It's very sad Becky feels this way - she is a gold medallist and world champion and an inspiration to millions, but as [with] most girls I know, seems to be trapped in a preconceived idea of what is pretty.
It's sad that Rebecca feels insecure because of her looks and I agree that the media has a big part to play in the way women and men portray themselves, but I don't think Amy should have been made to feel that she is in the wrong for being pretty and using her strongest qualities (her looks) to make a career.
Attractive women shouldn't be made to feel bad because of others insecurities. I'm sorry!! That's my opinion.
Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington's sister has thanked her Twitter followers for all their "support and kind words" after she broke down in tears on I'm A Celebrity over her body insecurities.
She wrote on Adlington's Twitter account:
Body image expert Natasha Devon said Rebecca Adlington's tears over her body insecurities and Twitter abuse shows that society is "still judging people by how they look first and foremost".
Ms Devon told Daybreak: "When we hosted the 2012 Olympics and people started talking about our bodies being there to achieve first and foremost instead of look a certain way, I really thought as a society that might have been a turning point.
"But what has happened with Rebecca Adlington and the appalling way she has been trolled online shows that actually we are still judging people by how they look first and foremost.
"Rebecca Adlington is a medal-winning athlete, she has an amazing body that is capable of incredible things - that shouldn't be diminished because she's in there with somebody whose body does something different".
Olympic gold-medallist Rebecca Adlington has admitted she feels "very insecure" about her looks and faces pressure to look a certain way.
Adlington broke down in tears on last night's I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! when the camp discussed the subject of beauty.
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, Adlington said, "We are made to think that being a size 12-14 like I am isn't attractive, that you have to have big hair and big boobs and all this ... and it makes you feel so c**p about yourself".
Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington broke down in tears on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! after she told model Amy Willerton she made her "insecure".
Adlington added: "And it's also making me very, very insecure that I have to look a certain way. For me, I was an athlete, I wasn't trying to be a model, but pretty much every single week on Twitter I get somebody commenting on the way I look."
Adlington told former EastEnder Laila Morse the model, who represented Great Britain at the Miss Universe 2013 pageant, "doesn't know what it's like on a day to day basis".
She said: "She's stick thin, she's got these push-up bras that make her boobs seem massive. She's stunning."
