Strictly Come Dancing star Jayde Adams has no time for weight shaming and her response to trolling is all you need to read today.

The comedian-turned-dancer has dominated the Strictly dance floor for the past two weeks with professional partner Karen Hauer.

For their first dance, they gave Dirrty a spicy samba from Christina Aguilera, before playing a powerful tango for Adele’s Rumor Has It in week two.

The pair have already amassed a legion of fans thanks to their adorable collaboration and hilarious training antics.

But sadly, the Bristol-born actress has also had to deal with trolls, with recent comments tarnishing her body size.

However, in true Jayde fashion, the artist closed them off faster than you could say, “Keep dancing!” and even offered her supporters some wise words.

She initially responded to a tweet suggesting she had the “BMI of a combine,” but refused to let her self-esteem hurt.

“I’m dead sexy and successful, though babes, so who gives a flying s**t,” she hit back, much to the delight of her followers, with one declaring, “I want to be you when I grow up!”

“Great response to a horribly unfriendly tweet…you were fantastic @jaydeadams ..you stay…” replied another.

Jayde later took to Instagram to speak out about the weight shaming, sharing a selfie of her enjoying a “well-deserved shandy.”

Referring to the original tweet, she gave some encouraging words to people who could be about her height: “You’ll be seeing this a lot while I’m dancing on national TV in tight outfits and it can make you feel s**t about your own weight,” she added.

“Let it float over you like a fart in my pudding.”

Jayde, we love you.

The funny lady and Strictly’s longest-serving pro Karen have formed a dream bond in recent weeks, with Karen even failing to say that she feels “more comfortable” with Jayde than any other partner she’s had.

“We’re like a pair of old slippers,” Jayde said metro.co.ukexplaining how she and Karen have been the perfect match.

“It’s true, I think, but I think that’s what you need in a partnership: you have to feel comfortable with each other,” Karen added.

‘Our communication is really good, we can talk and talk as coach and student or as friends or as women.

‘It’s amazing the levels we go into, the topics and of course the dancing that we can really connect everything to.

“I’ve definitely never felt so comfortable with another partner—don’t tell them.”

Jayde praised Karen for “welcoming” her into her family as the couple have a WhatsApp group with Karen’s husband, Jordan Wyn-Jones.

The pair is Strictly’s second wife-wife partnership, following in the footsteps of boxer Nicola Adams and Katya Jones, who made history as the show’s first gay pairing in 2020.

Last year, Bake Off legend John Whaite reached the final with Johannes Radebe and, in a Strictly first, Series 20 features two same-sex couples, including radio DJ Richie Anderson and reigning champion Giovanni Pernice.

Strictly Come Dancing will be broadcast on BBC One on Saturday and Sunday.
