The controversial social commentator took to the social media site to tweet about a potential new EU ruling that claims obesity ‘could be a disability’.

The mum-of-three wrote: “Obesity is not a disability. You are still able to walk to the fridge and shove half of it in your face.”

She then came up with an inventive yet definite Katie Hopkins-esque idea to help fight obesity in the UK.

She angrily typed: “If the obese are disabled, can they get a magnetic blue badge for their fridge? Preferably with my face on it”

The 39-year-old recently filmed a documentary for TLC where she put on several stone just so she could lose it in an effort to prove that there are ‘no excuses’ for being over weight.

She carried on, tweeting: “I have lost the four stone I put on to prove fat people are greedy and lazy and am looking forward to sharing the promo with you on Friday.”

“Know this. If you park in a disabled bay with an obesity badge, I WILL follow you around the supermarket and empty your trolley of bad stuff.”

She then argued that obesity couldn’t be a disability as it was a ‘choice’, writing: “Those with a genuine disability should be grossly offended by the ruling that fatties are now disabled. They had choice. Choice is a gift.

“I’ve got big bones, I've got thyroid issues, it runs in my family, I've got a slow metabolic rate. No love. You shoved too much in your face.

“I’m on disability benefits. I use them to buy cake.

“I lost my weight without a gym, on a budget, without a personal trainer - was part of the deal I made with myself #noexcuses for any of us.”
