Sharing a candid photo of her bottom, with painful red patches, Ella, 24, wrote: "I've always been open about my psoriasis and never edited it out of pictures. Recently I had possibly the worst flare-up ever (I think due to my change in hormones after birth) and I found myself unpacking my shorts, looking for longer dresses or jeans even in this ridiculous heat.

"It upset me because no matter how open I am on social media, posting a picture is completely different to walking out and owning your body," the model continued.
