Bake Off's Laura Adlington poses in sheer black lingerie as she hits out at 'last minute diets' | The Sun

GREAT British Bake Off's Laura Adlington showed off her curves as she defied trolls by posing in sheer black lingerie.

The Channel 4 star blasted critics who accused her of being "anti-health" after she shared a poem about being against "last-minute diets".

She penned: "I just want to be clear on something, because comments like this make me wonder if I'm not explicit enough.

"I am not, nor have I ever been, anti-health. I'm not telling you all to go and stuff your face Is with 20 pizzas a day. I think we should all strive for health."

Laura insisted: "What I am is anti-diet and anti diet-culture (note, not anti-dietER).

"All I want is for you to know that you deserve to live a full and happy life just as you are.

"I wasted so many years thinking I was a useless sack of s**t because of my size. I wish I had focused MORE on my health and less on what I looked like. I wish I didn't ease my life trying to do fad diets that messed with my head and led to even more weight gain.

"It took me a long time to realise diets don't work, and that you don't need to look like a Victoria Secret model in order to be respected and loved. 

"I post the content I do in the hope you learn the same. Does that make sense?"

Laura has previously admitted feeling suicidal after being attacked by fat-shaming trolls while appearing on Bake Off.

The Go Love Yourself podcast host, 32, told how the abuse worsened in the run up to the final of the Channel 4 show and how it nearly broke her.

She shared a poem from the book ‘Life’ by Donna Ashworth, which accused diet industries of "wanting you exhausted, they want you ashamed, they want you desperate".
