GOGGLEBOX vicar Kate Bottley has asked fans not to comment on her weight loss after she was flooded with compliments.
The 45-year-old posted a glamorous new picture of her wearing a bright pink vintage dress – and her followers were quick to comment on her shrinking frame.
But the strong-willed BBC Radio Two star said “the size of my a*** is the least interesting thing about me”.
Sharing a beautiful snap from her garden, Kate told followers: “I go out so rarely I have taken to wearing my #vintage frocks to Aldi. Here’s tonight’s offering I am Margot Leadbetter.”
One fan said: “Gosh, you are so slim and lovely in that, wish I was.”
Kate replied: ” I know you think you’re being kind but comments about weight aren’t ok.
“‘Slim’ isn’t necessarily healthier or more beautiful. I also don’t like anyone talking about my weight. (Ps you’re gorgeous, everyone is).”
Another fan commented: “You’ve lost weight.”
Again, Kate made sure she told her follower she was unhappy about her weight being discussed.
She said: “If it’s ok with you, I’d prefer it if you didn’t comment on my weight.
“I know you think you’re being kind, but thinner isn’t necessarily better or more beautiful and the size of my a*** is the least interesting thing about me.”
Kate became the nation’s favourite priest after appearing on Channel 4’s Gogglebox.
She was approached to appear on the show after a YouTube video of a wedding she was officiating went viral and gained over seven million views thanks to a flashmob dance routine.
Her stint as a professional couch potato with her husband Graham led to her landing more jobs on TV and radio.
Since February 2018, Kate has been presenting Good Morning Sunday on BBC Radio Two with Jason Mohammad.
