Alongside her inspiring message, the Dancing On Ice professional shared eight stunning photos of herself wearing different pieces from Rihanna’s lingerie line Savage X Fenty after learning to be comfortable in her skin.

Opening up in her caption, the brunette beauty highlighted that there ‘isn’t enough awareness around ED,’ adding: ‘They are not taken seriously enough.’

She wrote in full: ‘Sunday vibes and personal thoughts. I used to think I could never model lingerie for personal battles with my body confidence.

‘If you’ve followed me for a while you may know about my past battle with an aggressive eating disorder as I opened up about this a while ago.

‘This was meant to be a different kind of post but Today I saw tragic news of a lost battle with an ED. It made me realise once again that there isn’t enough awareness around ED.

‘They are not taken seriously enough. And it costs lives… I suffered nearly a decade. It ultimately ended my competitive skating career.

‘And for the last couple of years I’ve been strong enough to openly speak and raise awareness in the hope to help people who are suffering too.

‘To show them they are not alone and that the vicious circle can be beaten!! Despite these being lovely pictures by the amazing @nasibag , they represent so much more to me personally.’

She concluded: ‘You deserve to feel fierce, happy, confident and comfortable within yourself.’
