Orange is the New Black star Danielle Brooks (Taystee Jefferson, best character EVER) has proven that she's as amazing in real life as her quick-witted, self-loving character on the show. Taking to Instagram to show off her figure and speak out about loving your body, Danielle is our new official Queen. All hail.

Two weeks ago the OITNB fan favourite posted a bikini snap of yourself accompanied with the hashtag '#loveyourshape.' She said: "You already know what I'm reppin: Team Love ThySelf. Join me + @peoplestylewatchmag in celebrating the skin we're in by posting your FAV body photo #Loveyourshape. Rocking my @monifcplussizes bikini. Let's see your #LoveYourShape photos, they might get #RP. 😜"

The 25-year-old actor has proven she's ALL about loving your shape again this week by posting a selfie of her rocking a sport's bra, along with such an EPIC caption it'll make you want to whip off your baggy top and show off your shape.

She said: "Hey 💜rs, Today I decided to do something I've never done before: Go to the gym with my SHIRT OFF!! 🙊 I thought I'd share why this is significant for me. I've always wanted to do this but have felt shameful and have told myself 'until my body is perfect I'm forbidden.'

"Today my inner being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love. I should not be ashamed of my body. I'm not a walking imperfection! I'm a Goddess. Secondly, I'm a confident woman! That doesn't stop once I take off my spanx...Sometimes it's a struggle. Sometimes I don't like what I see, but I have the power to change the way in which I relate to my body both physically and mentally.

"Today I woke up feeling beautiful and motivated to love myself and take care of the ONE body that I've been given. I'm not saying World take your shirt off, twist it round your head, spin it like a helicopter🎶, (lol) I'm saying everyone live in your confidence. One Life. One Body. Take Care of It. With 💜, DanieB #voiceofthecurves #yesmythighstouch #lovethyself #beautyinandout #goddess #imabadshutyomouth #ivebeeneatingmygreens #thickathanasnika"

Amazing, right?! We love you Taystee girl!
