Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh has slammed companies reaching out to her to promote “extreme” diet products on Instagram.

The new mum, 28, who welcomed her son Roman with fiancé Ryan Thomas in March, took to the social media platform to discuss her post-baby body, and admitted to being “fed up” with being offered drastic products to help get back into shape.

Talking to her 1.7 million Instagram followers, she said: “So many of you are asking me about my post yesterday when I said I've lost 4 stone.

"It was actually not even about that it was frustration because I've had a baby and all my ads on my phone are about post-baby weight loss and 'get your pre-baby body back'.

"Loads of really extreme diets like slimming pills, shakes and laxative teas.

"My DMs, everyone's like, would you like to promote this skinny coffee or skinny shake.

"I was so fed up and so frustrated that I thought I would share that you can lose weight after a baby and it doesn't have to be drastic."
