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

Fat-shaming: On his Wednesday morning show, LBC radio presenter Steve said of Tilly: 'She's a chubby little thing isn't she. Have you noticed?'

‘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 his letter, Alex highlighted that ‘it is widely recognised just how damaging such comments about someone’s weight are and the effect they can have on an individual’s mental health’.

He also noted: ‘We must not underestimate the impact such remarks can have, feeding into the perpetual cycle of weight stigma that still exists here in the UK.’

Alex captioned his post: ‘Email sent. We stand with you @tillyramsay.To anyone affected by these comments please reach out to @beatedsupport charity.’

‘I am writing to you in my capacity as Youth Mental Health Ambassador regarding the comments made by your presenter Steve Allen, on LBC radio this morning.

‘We must not only think of the effect on Tilly here, which I can imagine could be significant, but also the potential impact to listeners of the show.

‘I am sure LBC, and Global as a whole, do not condone such comments. We are currently seeing a rise in the prevalence of eating disorders, with up to 3.4 million people in the UK currently being affected.’

Alex added: ‘We must not underestimate the impact such remarks can have, feeding into the perpetual cycle of weight stigma that still exists here in the UK.

‘To reiterate, the discussion highlighted above about a young person’s weight live on air is not acceptable.’

The TV personality concluded: ‘I look forward to hearing your response to these comments and how we can work towards such a situation never arising again. Yours sincerely, Dr Alex Geroge.’

Tilly penned on Wednesday in response to Allen’s comments: ‘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.
