Ulrika Jonsson has addressed remarks made over her ‘too thin’ figure and insisted that constant shaming has to end.
Writing in a new candid article, the presenter, 53, said that she has spent her entire life having her body scrutinised by people, including her own family members.
It comes after Ulrika was forced to address one of her followers earlier this week after they questioned if she is ‘okay’ and told her she looks ‘very slim’.

Talking about the remark in her column for The Sun, the mother-of-four said: ‘It was a caring enough remark and I responded cordially but it brought to the surface all the derogatory, disparaging and unflattering comments I’ve endured over the years.’
Ulrika admitted that she is a ‘prolific Instagrammer’ and that she is aware that she has to expect ‘some scrutiny’ documenting her life to her 144K followers.
Yet the presenter admitted that she has felt ‘pressure’ over her figure her entire life – even before she knew what the words ‘fat’ and ‘skinny’ meant.
Ulrika said: ‘I’ve had family “elders” (ie, people who should know better) comment on me having a “fat a**e” and only last September I was called “skinny” and told I looked “ill”, by one.’

The TV star said that after years of having remarks over her figure, they have stayed with her like ‘stubborn, immovable grease stain’.
Ulrika added the comments heightened after being pregnant four times and gaining three stone each time before slimming down to ‘normal’.
The presenter is mother to Cameron, 26, Bo, 21, Martha, 16, and Malcolm, 12.
The star said: ‘My body has endured a lot. And still the comments keep on coming. Now, I have to ensure I don’t look as if I’ve let myself go. Not at my age.’

Ulrika ended her column by insisting that the ‘constant shaming and vilifying of women’s figures’ has to stop as men don’t experience the same pressures.
It comes after the star addressed one of her followers after they questioned if she is ‘okay’ and told her she looks ‘very slim’ after posting new images.
In response in the comments section of her post, Ulrika assured the concerned fan: ‘I am a bit thin but trying to put weight on.’
The original post read: ‘Hello. Hope you’re well. How exciting. I just wanted to say you look so very slim and wanted to know if you are OK.

‘You are a beautiful and amazing woman, but just thought how thin you are. PS I hope your daughter Bo is on the mend. Kind regards, ZC.’
The comment was posted on a selection of new professional images which Ulrika shared to her Instagram page over the weekend.
In 2011 Ulrika admitted she was suffering from a back condition that has left her in chronic pain and sent her weight plummeting to just seven-and-a half stone.
At the time she told how degenerative disc disease had robbed her of her appetite and left her battling depression.

She revealed how her illness had taken its toll and said: ‘There was no let up, none at all. I was in agony 24 hours a day.’
Ulrika, who previously weighted around nine stone, was subjected to taunts about her weight after she left a GMTV interview in a low cut top that only served to highlight her chest.
She insisted that she did not own a set of scales and never weighed herself, adding: ‘I would estimate that at my lowest, I weighed around seven-and-a-half-stone.
‘It was this suggestion that I was inflicting all this on myself willingly that got to me…it was incredibly frustrating because the suggestion that I would risk my health for the perfect body goes against everything I’ve ever believed in.’
‘I’ve never been obsessed about the way my body looks – all I’ve ever wanted is to be healthy, because without our health, we have nothing.’
Concerns: It comes after the star addressed one of her followers after they questioned if she is ‘okay’ and told her she looks ‘very slim’ after posting new images
She confessed: ‘I had lost my hunger not just for food, but for life. Food is a happy thing for me and I was desperately unhappy, so there was no quick fix solution of hearty meals.’
More recently, Ulrika revealed she is in the midst of a ‘sexual awakening’ and has even discussed her new found liberation with her children.
The mother of four explained: ‘I am a sexual creature. It’s something that I say regularly to my children — much to their horror.’
She also confessed her spontaneous nature means she ‘wouldn’t rule out’ another marriage.

When asked in an interview with The Sun whether or not she’d tie the knot again, Ulrika said: ‘I’m a hedonist and a spontaneous person who believes in love. While it would feel strange getting married again, I can’t ever rule it out for the future.’
Discussing her sex life, Ulrika added: ‘I enjoy sex, I want to have sex and I am open to experience that. And it’s difficult for women my age to say that without being seen in a certain way.’
