His comment about the 19-year-old CBBC presenter led to calls for his resignation from LBC, where he has worked for 42 years, amid accusations of ‘fat-shaming’.
Responding on Instagram, Tilly wrote: ‘I won’t tolerate people that think it’s OK to publicly scrutinise anyone’s weight.’

Embarrassingly though, the teenager has a fat-shamer close to home.
Her celebrity chef father Gordon is particularly fond of using the F-word himself – and that’s ‘F’ for ‘fat’.

THE AUSSIE TV HOST WHO IS 'A PIG'
In 2009 Ramsay made the mistake of aiming misogynistic insults at Australian television host Tracy Grimshaw.

THE ‘FAT COW’ RESTAURANT
In 2012 Ramsay opened a restaurant in LA called The Fat Cow. His PR team rather unconvincingly tried to deny that it was an insult, saying: ‘The cow is something we eat all the time, but don’t appreciate, so the title of the restaurant is just a nod to that.’
Only a few months earlier, Ramsay had called Hell’s Kitchen contestant Sara Horowitz a ‘fat cow’ on camera. He also called her a ‘fat-mouthed stupid little b****’.
