The Geordie Shore star took to twitter to clear up weight gain rumours

Marnie Simpson has been forced to defend her weight after a cruel troll branded her an ELEPHANT on Twitter.

The former Geordie Shore star – who has just returned from a holiday with her boyfriend Casey Johnson – came back down to reality with a thud as she was subject to cruel abuse online.

Sharing a snap of Marnie on holiday alongside a picture of an elephant, the Twitter user wrote: ‘It’s uncanny @marnie about time you laid off the milkshakes!???”

To which Marnie quipped: ‘Disgusting sorry I was trying to enjoy my holiday. I’m hardly an elephant I’m a healthy size 12! Grow up!’

Fans rushed to Marnie’s defence and accused the social media troll of body shaming.

‘Another one who loves to body shame what a idiot grow up,’ one fan tweeted. Another said: ‘You look fine, ignore them.’

Marnie’s battle with her weight has one that’s been well documented, and last year Marnie admitted to feeling the biggest she’s ever been.

‘How did I get so fat? I honestly think it’s the fattest I’ve felt in a long time. I blame @mtvgeordieshore feeding us kebabs every night,’ she tweeted.

You’re a sexy badass mother****** and your kisses make me weak. Casey

Marnie’s weight gain comes three years after she lost a whopping 17Ibs in a month, but still insisted she’ll never be happy with her body.
