GOGGLEBOX'S Amy Tapper has slammed followers for their "backhanded compliments" after she was cruelly told she has more weight to lose after shedding three stone.

The 21-year-old star has been documenting her impressive transformation on social media, overhauling her image with a healthy diet and exercise.

She proudly took to her Instagram page yesterday to share a new before and after photo to highlight her trimmer figure.

Amy captioned the post: "New Year New Goals! I’ve been on my health and weight loss journey for a while now and despite lockdown I’m feeling the best I’ve felt physically in ages so just wanted to share a recent pic against one of my before photos from last year!"

But she was taken aback by some of the comments the photo received, admitting that fans' well-meaning words may not have come across as they intended.

Posting on her story, she wrote: "The worst thing is backhanded compliments. Like, compliment someone if you're gonna compliment them.

"Don't be like: 'Well done, another three stone to go' because when you think about it, that's more of an insult than a compliment.

"Especially if you don't actually personally know me."

She defiantly went on to add: "Excuse the rant, I love all of you and your comments and support but unfortunately it's ones like that that stick out.

"My page is for positivity, love, and joy. Those comments will simply just be deleted.

"I'm going at my own pace doing what I think is best and however much I lose and whatever time will be all my choices and decisions."

Amy previously told The Sun that she is happier than ever with her body, adding: "I am more confident in myself and I love myself as a person more than I’ve ever done before."

She also admitted that she used to cry after being targeted by cruel trolls while she appeared on Gogglebox.

Amy first found fame alongside her family as they appeared on the Channel 4 show between 2013 and 2018, with the then-teen going on to search for love on Celebs Go Dating.
