Put the skinny frame away please, Michelle Keegan

Every girl has a celeb body she wishes was hers, right? Along with Lucy Meck, Michelle Keegan‘s body was up there, until her latest Instagram snap that is.

On Saturday night she posted a picture of herself in a pair of joggers and what looks like a top rolled up to reveal a ridiculously tiny torso.

The caption said ‘Saturday night chill night’, which didn’t seem to tally up with the picture. My idea of a Saturday night chill night is slobbed out on the sofa with the Hollyoaks omnibus, a bottle of red and a takeaway, not posing in my bathroom.

Michelle has always been slim but this photo is a bit worrying. I know she’s standing at an angle, but she looks out of proportion and not her usual gorgeously curvy self.

When I was growing up there wasn’t the pressure that there is these days to look good. We all wore whatever we liked and never flaunted our bodies like girls do now. I spent my teens in band t-shirts and baggy jeans.

Life was just about having fun and being a teenager, there were no selfies or bodies to aspire to, not that I remember anyway. Although saying that, I was heavily picked on at school for being skinny. Had the internet been around then I dread to think what would have happened.

I worry that young girls may look at this photo of Michelle Keegan and get the wrong
message, adding to the already huge problem of body insecurity. I don’t
look at this picture and think I must go the gym more, I want to look
like her. I think god, life’s too short to obsess about your weight and
deprive yourself of the things you love.
