Strictly 2012: Size 6 Dani Harmer hits back at "ridiculous" fat jibes

Strictly Come Dancing star Dani Harmer has blown everyone away with her dance moves on the hit BBC1 show.
 - Strictly 2012: Size 6 Dani Harmer hits back at "ridiculous" fat jibes

The former children’s TV star has even managed to make it to the quarter finals with partner Vincent Simone, so she's understandably frustrated at all the attention aimed at her weight rather than her dancing.

The 23-year-old has been targeted by trolls over her curves and been on the receiving end of some very cruel jibes on social networking sites such as Twitter.

But Dani has spoken out against the taunts, venting to The Sun: “I’m not fat. For people to say I am is ridiculous. Yes, I have curves but I’m proud of that and I’m only a size 6.”

After weeks of abuse from vile internet bullies, the Tracey Beaker star has finally had enough and took to her own Twitter page to address the nasty comments.

She wrote: “Hate on me as much as you like! But I like being curvy! #ShakeWhatYourMummaGaveYa”.

Adding to the actress’ frustrations is the fact that none of the other female contestants are having to deal with such intense focus on their weight.

Even former soap star Lisa Riley - who is markedly bigger - hasn’t had the same attention paid to her body shape.

But Dani is trying to take it all in her stride and insists that being in the competition has boosted her confidence.

She revealed to The Sun: “Strictly has helped me feel sexier, but sexiness has nothing to do with your weight - I’ve always been confident with how I look.”

In fact, the Dani’s House star is particularly proud of her bottom, which she says is very similar to her fellow Strictly competitors.

The 5ft 1in star star joked: “Kimberley Walsh has the same size bum as me. We often compare them because both of us have a lot of junk in the trunk.”


Do you think it’s unfair for everyone to focus on Dani’s weight?
Yes - It’s horrible for everyone to keep calling her fat.
No - She’s the one talking about it all the time!
