Earlier today, the 2003 Pop Idol winner blasted Vicky for an Instagram post she made about cruel trolls commenting on her shape.

Sharing a screenshot of 31-year-old Vicky’s social media post, which called out critics for “bodyshaming” her over “unflattering pap pics”, Michelle, 38, added another screenshot from a 2014 news article.

The old post, attributed to Vicky, read: “‘There’s a Michelle McManus inside me dying to get out!’

“Vicky Pattison gorges on pizza and chips despite her ‘constant fear’ of gaining weight”.

Michelle captioned her tweet: “Yes @vickypattison because you’ve never publicly body shamed anyone have you? Oh wait…”

The Scottish singer was inundated with support from fans, with one writing: “How rude is she! I’ve got a word for her, ‘a***hole’.”

Another shared a sassy gif which read: “Boom” with the caption: “Get her told.”

Sending a public apology to Michelle, Vicky told the MailOnline: “There are a lot of things I did five years ago that I’m not proud of.

“And to be honest, I wouldn’t even recognise the girl I was back then.

“I cannot apologise enough if my comments caused upset or hurt.

“I can guarantee even then it was not my intention, just my ignorance. I hope you accept my apology.”

Yesterday, Vicky shared a video to her Instagram page defending herself after followers accused her of trying to steal the spotlight from her sister on her wedding day.

She captioned the clips: “Soooooooo, I’m sorry to whinge and have to post this but I’ve had about enough of s***ty articles, online bullies, body shaming, trolling and negativity! And I’m hoping this will silence everything.

“Attending my sisters wedding yesterday was beautiful- but let’s face it, I’d have to be dead inside to not wonder about what was meant to be of my future and feel a little sad and hurt. But none the less, I couldn’t have been happier for her and @dannya2008! The implication that I would somehow try and steal the limelight from her on her on her big day has hurt me so much.

“To add insult to injury I’m now being body shamed over some unflattering pap pics and I can’t believe we’re still on this hype in 2019. Anyway, watch the video, it’s all in there, I’m off to drink tequila and tell every woman I see that I think she’s smart, funny, pretty and important.

“I hope you all understand where I’m coming from here – and appreciate my honesty and are not just bored t*tless of my endless Instagram crusading.

“Sending love, lols and kindness from Mexico and hoping some of it reaches all trolls and t*ts alike”.

Vicky shot to fame after landing a spot on MTV reality show Geordie Shore in 2011.

Since then she has made a name for herself in the fitness circuit, shedding the pounds and releasing a fitness DVD to help her fans do the same.
