Love Island UK star Anna Vakili has sent a strong message to fat-shamers, telling them to kiss her ‘fat a*s’.

The 29-year-old former reality TV star is famous for her curvy figure which is on full display in snaps from her Dubai holiday, but it looks like some people had nothing nice to say.

After posting a string of slinky bikini shots, the star followed up with a bold statement in her Instagram story.

Uploading a shot taken on a boat from behind, the brunette sported an itsy bitsy bikini bottom that left little to the imagination, and if anyone was still unclear, accompanied it with an uncompromising statement.

“All the fat shamers can kiss myyy FAT a** stretch marks and all,” she wrote over the photo.

The comment comes after an earlier photo the UK beauty posted attracted some ugly commentary.

A gorgeous snap of the star in a black one-piece was mainly praised by adoring fans, with one or two rude comments spoiling the fun for everyone.

“You’ve let yourself go,” one person observed.

“You have put on a bit of weight,” was another nasty, and unproven observation.

Rather than hit back in the comments Anna took the opportunity to share the unfiltered photo as the ultimate clap back, and fans were loving it.

She followed the story with a photo posted to her page in the same bikini taken on the same boat.

“Feeling peachy,” she captioned the snap.

The tiny black number is a Pretty Little Things look, and her black and neon green suit that kicked off the controversy is selling fast on ASOS.

Anna was a contestant on Love Island’s fifth season this year, as the show took off internationally becoming a cult hit.

Now with 1.3 million followers on Instagram, and a string of endorsements and fashion lines under her belt, the former pharmacist is going from strength to strength and clearly isn’t afraid to let the haters know.

The positive spin on body-shaming comes after The Iconic celebrated body diversity at their swimwear show to the delight of fans.
