Helen George has hit back at a Twitter user who fat-shamed her after watching an episode of Call The Midwife, which was filmed when she was pregnant.
The actress’ character, Trixie Franklin, made her exit from the show on Sunday night with an alcoholism storyline but in real life she was actually leaving to have a baby.
The Twitter user attacked the actress, who only gave birth to her first child in October 2017, by calling her “massive” and saying that she “needs to be put on a diet.”> © Provided by Independent Digital News & Media Limited image

George swiftly responded to the insult with a post that has since garnered an impressive 32,000 likes.
“Sorry if my chins offended you, I chose to feed my baby healthily and not starve myself in a selfish act to look good on TV,” she wrote.
“Would you say this to a pregnant lady’s face? You should look on pregnant ladies’ multiple chins with love, they are busy making the future.”
After one person replied that she shouldn’t waste her time responding to the troll, George revealed that it wasn’t the first time she’s received comments condemning her weight.
