Love Island star Millie Court has opened up about receiving "nasty" comments online about her figure, with some people even asking if she's pregnant.
Millie, 24, who won last year's series with her now boyfriend Liam Reardon says that even though she's happy with how she looks the remarks hurt, adding: " I’m human – nobody likes to feel judged."
Speaking to The Sun, the TV star said she felt the most confident she had ever been when she applied to go on Love Island.
While on quarantine in Mallorca, before entering the famous villa, Millie ate well and worked out everyday, having tried to get as fit and healthy as possible in the months before.

When she appeared on our screens she was a size 8, about a dress size smaller than usual.
Due to her not being a massive fan of the food in the villa, and eating less because of the heat, by the time she left the show Millie was a size 6, the smallest she has been.
"After the show, I gradually put weight back on and rediscovering my curves made me feel sexy," she said, adding: "But recently, I’ve received nasty comments on social media about my size-10 figure, with some people even asking if I’m pregnant."

She said to imagine if she was receiving the messages and was unable to have children or unsuccessfully trying for a baby.
She went on: "Even though I’m now happy with the way I am, inside and out, those comments hurt. I’m human – nobody likes to feel judged."
In March, Millie hit out at people who have bombarded her with pregnancy questions on social media.
She said: "NO, I am not pregnant although one day hopefully I will be and I'm sure it'll be one of the happiest days of my life,"

"Being a woman, especially in the public eye, I've now experienced what it's like to be absolutely torn apart by the way you look, dress, act etc and it can be hard on someone to be constantly judged."
She also spoke of the effects going from a size 10 to a 6 had on her.
"Because of my height, this made me look unhealthily skinny, of which I was (not eating barely anything, feeling ill all the time, tired, dizzy etc),

"I remember looking at myself, I'd lost my boobs and my bum and those curves I once had and I MISSED them," she said.
The Love Islander went on: "Since coming out of Love Island, I've found my love for my food again and yes I'm getting back to my usual size. But I love being this way and I just want you all to know that if you love your body and the way that you are, then that is THE most important thing."
