Marnie Simpson hits out at jealous trolls after launching weight loss programme

Marnie Simpson has hit back at trolls who criticsed her after she showed off the results of a new diet and exercise program.

TheGeordie Shorestar, 30, took to social media earlier this week to share how she was “feeling herself again” after losing over two stone and being in a “dark place”.

However, although much of the response to her body transformation was positive, the star has taken to Instagram to share how she has been targeted by trolls as a result of the announcement.

Speaking to the camera on her Instagram Story, Marnie said: "I wasn’t even gonna come on and mention this because I’ve honestly never been affected by trolls ever in my life, but because I’m getting messages from my close friends, you know what, I thought I’m just gonna come on and say…

“I am so sorry to all of them awful, unhealed, negative, unhappy people who are looking at my Instagram.

"It’s not my fault that you guys feel unhappy, that watching my Instagram and my weight loss journey is triggering you. It’s not my fault. Don’t like it? Don’t look at my page.”

Continuing, Marnie explained: “I’ve worked by a**e off. Mentally, physically, emotionally to change my whole life around. Got myself out of a dark place and I’m not gonna let any trolls dim my light.

“I deserve to be empowered about it, I deserve to spread motivation about it and I deserve to show off my results because I’ve worked damn hard and I’ve spent a long time being in a really unhappy place, probably like all you trolls.

“I can relate, I was probably feeling just as crap but at no point did I try and project that unhappiness on other people.

“I actually do feel so incredibly sorry for these unhappy people, because you must be so unhappy to take women down.

“If you don’t like me or you don’t like what I represent or you don’t like anything about me, just don’t watch my stuff. Don’t comment. Firstly, no-one cares.

"I’m so thankful of all the supporters that I’ve got. I’m so thankful of all the loyal, kind-hearted followers that I’ve got, because there are so many of you. I just feel like all you trolls really need to go and get some help.”

Afterwards, Marnie shared some messages of support she'd received from fans following her video and thanked them for support.

Next to one message, she wrote: "Luv you all so much. Amazing people out there and I like to focus on the most amazing supportive followers rather than the bl**dy jealous trolls."

Marnie was previously criticised by former Great British Bake Off star Laura Adlington, who commented on one of Marnie's weight loss posts.

Writing to Marnie in the comments section, she wrote: "I can’t help but question why you’ve chosen to launch this on Boxing Day.

"It feels wrong to me, to profit off of people’s insecurities when they haven’t even digested their Turkey."

Marnie hit back at Laura, replying: "I’ve launched it on Boxing Day to motiv8 people hun maybe take your negative comments off my page, this is good vibe zone area ONLY! and I don’t want you trying to bring it down with your paranoia & Conspiracy theories.

Laura then replied: "Good vibes would be not cashing in people’s insecurities, babes."
