Tina Malone's slimmed-down figure causes concern among fans as she appears on This Morning


Former Shameless actress Tina Malone appeared on This Morning on Thursday and revealed her incredibly slimmed-down frame.

The 53-year-old TV star has shed 12 stone in weight in recent years after getting a gastric band, but viewers of the ITV programme took to Twitter to air their concern over her physique.

Wearing a small, patterned camisole and white jeans, the blonde personality revealed her slim arms and legs.

Other fans commented on her choice of revealing outfit for the daytime TV show, her cleavage also on display.

It wasn't all negative, though, as many on Twitter complimented her on her transformation.

A representative for the star told the Press Association that Tina is well, and that she has "lost weight happily and healthily".

The spokesman added that "she's pleased with her body weight and size and has achieved the weight loss that she's always personally wanted for herself".

Tina has openly discussed her battle with her weight, and had a gastric band fitted in 2010.

She also spoke about undergoing an operation to remove the excess skin on her body as well as a tummy tuck and facelift.

Tina was on the This Morning couch opposite hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes to discuss fat-shaming aimed at children along with journalist Nilufer Atik.

The fitness expert claims that a one-year-old child who was slammed online for looking "chubby" was unhealthy and that the abuse was justified.

Tina disagreed with her comments, saying it is "disgusting" to tell a parent that their child is fat.
