Tamara Ecclestone has hit back at critics who have speculated that her sister Petra Stunt has opted for cosmetic surgery, after she debuted a makeover on a night out. The 32-year-old took to Instagram to defend her younger sibling, explaining that Petra's new look was down to make-up and having a "fabulous pout".

"I am not usually one to address the haters but when it's about my family I feel differently," she wrote in a caption accompanying a photo which read "Confident women don't hate". "So just to be clear not that it's any ones business my sister has not had any cosmetic surgery she has just cut and coloured her hair she is a mum to three young children two of whom she is still breast feeding so is actually unable to have any cosmetic surgery."
She added: "It's amazing what a new lip liner and a fabulous pout can achieve."
Petra and Tamara often up the beauty stakes for a night out
While Petra herself has not addressed the speculation, Tamara assured her fans that the mother-of-three was "not hurt by the untruths", before urging them to support each other and promote a positive message about confidence.
"She is a beautiful girl who luckily is not hurt by the untruths and speculation and some of your opinions," Tamara wrote. "But we should empower and support one another instead of tearing each other down. No one heals themselves by hurting another."
Petra has previously been rocking long, honey-toned blonde hair
The speculation initially started when Tamara shared a photo of herself and Petra enjoying a girls' night out, in which her sister was seen rocking a bold new makeover. Ditching her long, wavy honey-hued blonde hair, Petra instead opted for an edgy platinum blonde bob, following in the footsteps of stars from Khloé Kardashian to Myleene Klass who also recently embraced the trends.
The British beauty showed off her new 'do by wearing her hair in an effortlessly cool half updo with a top knot, completing the look with matte pink lipstick and bold, voluminous lashes.
