A second wrote: "For years I was 7 stone which people believed gave them the right to comment on my weight. The worst one was 'painfully thin'. Now I'm 10 stone, people think it's a compliment to say, 'have you lost weight, you look healthy'. Do not ever comment on people's weight!"

And a fourth said: "Hey lady, you are in fab shape & an inspiration to millions. Me & my wife were walking the Scarborough/Filey/Whitby coast last week & whenever it got tough we said 'What would Julia do?' and we ploughed on through. Keep doing what you do #inspiration."

It comes after Julia received some unkind comments on a bikini photo she shared on social media. The TV star had posed for a snapshot as she sunbathed in a black string bikini, wearing oversized sunglasses and an array of necklaces, while lying on a striped towel. "It's all about the #stacation #saturdayvibes Love & sun," she told fans.
