Default Strictly's Tilly Ramsay 19 is called chubby little thing on LBC radio



The CBBC presenter, 19, admitted she was 'hurt' after being referred to as 'chubby' on Steve's LBC early morning show

Strictly Come Dancing star Tilly Ramsay has lashed out at LBC's Steve Allen after he referred to her as a 'chubby little thing' on his radio show.

The daughter of Gordon Ramsay took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a lengthy statement in which she expressed her hurt and shock at having her appearance criticised 'by a 67-year-old man on national radio'.

In the post, Tilly, 19, revealed that she was 'learning to accept' herself but had still been left 'hurt' by the shocking remarks.

The CBBC presenter is competing on Strictly with professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin and is simultaneously featuring on the pre-recorded Celebrity MasterChef Australia.

Alongside the statement she shared a soundbite from Steve's show, in which he read out a comment from a listener alerting him to the fact Tilly was taking part in Celebrity MasterChef Australia.

Steve - who is on air between 4am and 7am - then remarked: 'Is she? Well, she can't blimming well dance!

'I'm bored of her already. She's a chubby little thing isn't she. Have you noticed? Probably her dad's cooking I should imagine.'

In response to the remarks, Tilly penned: 'I try not to read and listen to comments and negativity however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far.

'Steve please feel free voice your opinions however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance. It's such a shame that someone is trying to make such a positive experience negative.'



Tilly continued: 'This isn't the first and definitely wont' be the last comment made about my appearance and I accept that and I'm learning to accept myself.

'But please remember that words can hurt. And at the end of the day I am only 19 and I'm so grateful for all the amazing opportunities I have been able to take part in.

'And I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with it's own repercussions and I've been aware of this from a young age.

'However, I won't tolerate people that think it's okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone's weight and appearance. Love Tilly xx'

She captioned the post '#bekind'.

MailOnline has contacted LBC for comment.

Strictly stars flooded the post with support for Tilly with Janette Manrara writing: 'How fast we forget what hurtful comments can do for someone’s mental health. You are a POWERFUL young lady! Wear your crown w/ your head held high'.

Giovanni Pernice penned: 'Some people are very nasty !! Don’t listen to this crap .. we love You girl ! #bekind'.

GBBO star and Strictly contestant John Whaite penned: 'He’s a piece of old sandpaper love, worn and used and has nothing to offer the world. And his vicious scratching has only left you polished and more fabulous. Love you.'

Her sister Holly meanwhile wrote: 'Very well said x #bekind', while their sister Megan echoed: 'Love you Tills'.

Elizabeth Hurley's son Damian reached out to Tilly to write: 'what a total w**ker. bloody uncalled for. can’t wait for you to have the last laugh and keep winning. sending you love'.



Chef, social media influencer and TV presenter Tilly has over 9.5 million followers on TikTok, where she regularly posts funny videos of herself and dad Gordon.

She presented Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch on CBBC, which saw her cooking and having adventures along with her family, for which she received three Children’s BAFTA nominations.

In 2017 she published her first cookery book, inspired by the show, titled: Matilda & The Ramsay Bunch: Tilly's Kitchen Takeover.

Tilly and her Dad also hosted a regular cooking item on This Morning, Big Chef Little Chef.

Meanwhile, Steve has hosted the early morning breakfast show on LBC since 2000.

This isn't the first time the presenter has come under fire for making controversial comments.

Back in 2018, Steve was rapped by Ofcom after he mocked a blind journalist who became the first person in the UK to use a miniature guide horse.

Mohammed Salim Patel from Blackburn, Lancashire, was using two-year-old American miniature horse Digby because of his fear of dogs - until the horse grew too big.

In a broadcast on October 1, Steve said he'd 'never heard of anything so stupid' while discussing a story on Digby.

He also said on air: 'Well if he's blind, tell him it's a rabbit or something. I've never heard of anything so stupid.

'This is the blind man scared of dogs hoping that a horse will guide him on his commute. Where are you going to take that for goodness sake?'

In December, communications regulator Ofcom upheld a complaint that the comments had been offensive.

In its ruling, Ofcom said: 'Mr Allen seemed to be implying that people who are blind cannot differentiate between a rabbit and a dog.

'We considered that this remark could have been interpreted as belittling blind people and offering a highly pejorative view of them.

'Further, Mr Allen repeatedly questioned, in dismissive terms, the practicality of using a guide horse and emphatically dismissed what was an individual's choice to equip himself in this way as "ludicrous".

'He also concluded that the man in question should be denied this choice ('He's afraid of dogs. Why? Why's he afraid of dogs? Well don't give him - don't give him anything at all then. Just give him a white stick').

'In our view the potential offence was exacerbated by Steve Allen mocking the idea that the BBC had employed a blind cameraman.'

LBC said in its response to Ofcom that the programme is 'centred around (Steve Allen's) unique and acerbic take on the news of the day'.

The response added that he 'provides fast-moving opinions on the headlines and rarely dwells on one topic for any significant amount of time' and said his comment on the Mr Patel's story 'had a total duration of less than a minute'.

Earlier this year, Steve took an extended leave of absence from his radio show due to illness.

He did not front the show from February 17 to March 15.

On March 3, following calls from fans to know how the presenter was doing, LBC responded with a tweet which gave fans an update on his health.

They said: 'Thank you to everyone who’s got in touch to ask about Steve Allen.

She has given him far too much publicity by even acknowledging it, should have ignored him

Isn't it something when a fat, bald, ruddy-faced bloke in his 60's thinks he can start commenting on other people's appearance in any way.

I completely disagree, compliance and agreeability are what has gotten us to 2021 with certain people still thinking this is acceptable comment.

Not really, I agree but having someone comment on your appearance with consent is not the same thing at all as commenting on someone's appearance uninvited.

If your friend says "Tell me straight Cherie - does this pullover look good on me?" and you say "I'm afraid not, it's too tight, not flattering and makes you look a bit fat." there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

That doesn't mean it's OK to walk round to a friend's house, take one look at them and say "WOW change that jumper you look like a burst pack of sausages" completely without prompt.

As a real world example, my wife sometimes asks me if her eyebrows are even and I will give an honest appraisal. If she comes downstairs and I notice they are uneven and she hasn't asked... do I say anything? NO, what madness!


Steve Allen is free to comment on me if he wants

What, she has made comments on a National Radio show about someone's weight? Nope, I don't think so.

If he had said it in conversation with a friend, that's one thing but to say it on a radio show is not on.
