Katie did acknowledge that some of her posts about food and exercise could have the potential to make people angry.

Replying to the social media users, Katie wrote: "There are people online who, when I put pictures up, say, 'you're making mums feel bad!' And it's like, if you feel bad about this photo of me, those are your personal insecurities.

"I'm not about making people feel inadequate, trust me."

If you follow Katie on social media it will be easy to see that she enjoys going to the gym and prepping healthy food.

She recently spoke to Women's Health magazine about how she fell in love with fitness.

Katie said: "I started spending my weekends doing races. Then I progressed to a half-marathon and I actually enjoyed it.

"It was in this moment that I connected with exercise. I was like, 'I feel free - I feel young. I'm not going to accept those low expectations'. Instead of getting better, I wanted to go beyond."

Katie also took to social media recently to speak out about the decision to release her attacker.

Stefan Sylvestre was handed a life sentence in 2009 for throwing acid at the TV presenter, but is set to be released after serving his minimum term of just six years.

Katie, who is currently preparing to appear on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, suffered horrendous injuries which left her permanently scarred after her ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch arranged for Sylvestre to throw the acid in March 2008.

On hearing the news of Sylvestre's release, Katie tweeted: "This is a really difficult time for me. I am trying to come to terms with the decision and this is something I need to deal with.

"Over the past 2 weeks Strictly has already given me such a welcome and positive distraction from my past. Whilst there is never a good time to hear this news, I am glad I have this new journey to concentrate on."
