The 23-year-old beauty – who won the ITV dating show in 2019 – says,  "Stone or no stone I’m still the baddest b****, yeah like it is what it is, it’s just weird people want to do it, I know people are like “you signed up for it” but just don’t say nasty things to people."

Amber previously admitted to gaining weight during the coronavirus lockdown after "living off takeaways".

And she's urged her social media followers to ignore criticism of their bodies, saying "society doesn't even know" what constitutes the ideal body type.

She told fans during an Q&A: "Society doesn't even know what it wants because one day having a big bum is bad now it's great, having big boobs was the thing now it's not, society doesn't even know so don’t even listen to that s***."
