Megan Barton Hanson has revealed she’s ‘really struggling’ with her body image during a candid Q&A session on Instagram on Monday.   

The 28-year-old reality star who rose to fame on season four of Love Island admitted that her recent healthy weight gain left her ‘obsessing’ over her figure. 

The former exotic dancer and web cam girl also explained how she set an unrealistic nutritional intake of 800 calories a day. 

Generally, the recommended daily calorie intake is 2,000 calories a day for women and 2,500 for men.

The OnlyFans model made the reveal when asked advice from a follower on diets and workout plans. 

Posing a throwback snap from earlier this year in pink lingerie, Megan penned an honest account for her 1.6million social media followers. 

She said: ‘I’ve been really struggling with my body. ‘I got this lean back in Feb/March and not in a healthy way. 

‘Now I’ve gained weight by eating a normal amount of cals (1200/1300) and I’m obsessing about it!

‘The praise was super nice but also the pressure to maintain that is a lot. I was living on 800/1000 cals a day and working out and it wasn’t sustainable. 

She added: It’s tough tho being called fat for years, then the praise for starving myself it’s hard having so many options.’ 

Another Love Island star who has spoken publicly about her recent weight gain is Millie Court.

Millie was was forced to hit back at fans questioning whether she’s pregnant in an impassioned post earlier this year. 

The reality star, who was crowned series champion alongside Liam Reardon in August, also admitted she felt ‘tired and dizzy all the time’ after slimming down to a size six ahead of her appearance on the show.

Millie has since returned to her previous weight, and she admits it’s the happiest she’s been since leaving the Spanish villa seven months ago.

Drawing attention to her fuller figure, the TV personality posed in a distinctive black top and matching trousers alongside a lengthy caption. 

Sharing the message on her Stories to celebrate International Women’s Day, Millie wrote: ‘I’ve been getting a lot of these messages and comments recently… and as it’s International Women’s Day let’s discuss it.

‘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 but 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.

‘I personally feel like I am a very strong girl so those words don’t often hurt me, and neither does this.

‘Hence why I am trying my best to show everyone you are beautiful no matter way, without all the editing and filters.

‘But if you have made this comment to someone, just think about how that someone could take that and it could potentially hurt. This is of course indicating that someone’s put on weight and almost feels like a nicer way to say are you pregnant or are you just packing on the pounds?’

The star went onto detail her own body insecurities before appearing on Love Island, explained she shed two dress sizes through exercising and eating salad every day.

While she was happy with her figure, Millie admitted she feared being compared to other female stars in the villa.

She explained: ‘I’ve always been (before Love Island) fluctuating between a size 8 and 10, but most of the time a size 10. I was so happy with the way I looked, I didn’t think twice about it,’ Millie explained.

‘But before taking part in Love Island, she decided to hit the gym to shed some weight.

‘On the weeks leading up to Love Island I felt the need to lose several pounds because I knew I was going to be surrounded by beautiful slim girls.

‘I worked out every single day and ate salad for lunch and to tell you the truth I was miserable whilst doing it. I’d changed whilst I was on the show for several reasons that’s probably for another story time.

‘But I went from a size 10 to a 6, and it’s the smallest I’ve ever been as a young adult.

‘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) and I remember looking at myself, I’d lost my boobs and my bum and those curves I once had and I MISSED them.’

Millie went onto reveal that since leaving the Love Island villa she’s returned to her previous weight and has become content with her body and urged her followers to ‘love their body.’ 

‘Anyway the point of this is, 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,’ she said.

‘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.

“We’re all different shapes and sizes, each size perfect in our own way. But please don’t get stuck to the beauty standard of’ ‘perfection”.

‘Don’t feel the pressure to need to be like some of the models we see on the runway because I know being in this job and in the limelight, those pressures are extremely heightened. 

‘And today I’m letting go of that pressure and telling you all I am perfectly happy the way I am.’
