'I'm a size six but people don't believe me': Strictly's Dani Harmer puts vile online comments about her weight down to 'jealousy'
She's had to endure a torrent of online abuse about her weight since she started on Strictly Come Dancing.
But after having lunchtime liposuction and hiring a personal trainer, it seems as if Dani Harmer has come to the conclusion that the comments are down to 'jealousy' rather than her figure.
Claiming to be a size six, the former child star has admitted that the insulting comments made her feel insecure at first, but says that she is in proportion for her tiny frame.
Torrent of abuse: Dani Harmer has had to endure a abusive comments about her weight, despite being a size six
Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, the 23-year-old said that she doesn't have any fat on her body and didn't understand the online abuse:
'I'm a size six but people don't believe that. There's no fat on me at all, apart from my boobs and bum; I've got a womanly, hourglass shape,' she said.
Under no delusions that she's going to look as slim as someone who is the same dress size but much taller, Dani added:
'Of course I'm not going to look the bloody same as someone who's 6ft and a size six, because I'm squashed down.'

Regained her confidence: The actress has admitted that the comments made her insecure at first but now she puts them down to 'jealousy'
Since she first appeared on the BBC dancing show, Dani has had to endure comments from her Twitter followers about how overweight she looks.
And in a bid to look thinner, the Tracy Beaker star underwent some non-invasive liposuction on her stomach at a Harley Street clinic a few weeks ago, to remove and small area of fat.
Speaking out about the procedure at the time, Dani said:
'I'm very fit and healthy and have a great diet, but there was a small area around my tummy which wouldn't shift.'
Impressed: Dani impressed the judges on Saturday night with her two dances, after performing with partner Vincent Simone
Focusing on the show: Dani has been putting all her energy into her dances, rather than worrying about mean comments
But since then, the actress seems to have released that it was the internet trolls who had a problem, not her.
'Now I just put it down to jealousy,' she said.
After scoring two tens and two nines in Saturday night's live show, it seems as if Dani has put her insecurities well and truly behind her, focusing on her performances each week.
