Despite impressing with her body, her words went down less well with Twitter users, with one writing: "I don't think that's being a very good role model tbh...making yourself hungry just to look skinny, set a healthy example."

Another said: "so saying the way to a good figure is by not eating? That's how eating disorders start in young girls."
