It’s been claimed by a tabloid newspaper today that model Amy Willerton is being “bullied” by some of her fellow celebrity campers, and in particular by Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter and Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington!

Apparently, Lucy caused upset when she said to Amy, “What’s it like then [being a model]? Don’t you feel like a piece of meat?”

The Daily Star adds, “Amy tried to defend herself by claiming she wanted to change the beauty industry.”

But Lucy reportedly replied, “Surely you’re self-perpetuating the industry by looking the way you do and entering these things instead of trying to do it by looking a little bit different?”

Amy then remarked, “If I didn’t have my looks then maybe I would have a different career.”

Next, while Rebecca was talking with Matthew Wright, apparently Amy came over and sat between them, prompting Rebecca to remark, “You just pushed me out of the way.”

She then got into talk about how models “put pressure on ordinary girls” to be thin, commenting, “There is too much emphasis on slim women.”

However, Amy responded by saying that she’s considered “curvy” and added, “Sometimes people call me fat.”

Rebecca reportedly later “broke down in tears” as she told EastEnders star Laila Morse, “Amy doesn’t know what it’s like on a day-to-day basis.

“She’s stick-thin, she’s got these push-up bras that make her boobs seem massive.

“To me it’s not to do with her as a person, it’s the image she portrays that girls should be stick-thin and beautiful.”

However, it seems that Amy has herself been on the receiving end of nasty jibes, and of her schooldays, she said, “I was really shy with braces and glasses, and I got bullied.

“When I had the braces taken off and stopped wearing glasses people started treating me very differently.”

Do you think Amy’s being bullied in camp? Let us know, but for now, here’s a look at last night’s show…

    Amy was being bullied last night and it was really not nice to watch. I hope everyone gets behind her now to show this is unacceptable if people had been mean about Rebeccas nose or Lucys lack of a personality I am sure there would be uproar

  2. Alan says:

    I don’t think it was a clear cut case of bullying just jealousy and what girls do best, bitching

    ‘Next, while Rebecca was talking with Matthew Wright, apparently Amy came over and sat between them, prompting Rebecca to remark, “You just pushed me out of the way.”’

    The only thing is, Amy did just push Rebecca away. She butted in on Rebecca’s and Matthew’s conversation and that is really rude.


    ‘She then got into talk about how models “put pressure on ordinary girls” to be thin, commenting, “There is too much emphasis on slim women.”’

    That is true. If any guys out there knew how much girls try to look like models, they would be amazed. People go into depression because they’ll ‘never be able to look like that girl on TV’.


    ‘However, Amy responded by saying that she’s considered “curvy” and added, “Sometimes people call me fat.”’

    Oh whoopy whoo! Some people call her fat? She sounds like a seven year old. People get called fat every day. It’s called real life.


    ‘Amy then remarked, “If I didn’t have my looks then maybe I would have a different career’

    Cocky much? No one’s gonna like someone who’s big headed and full of themselves.


    As you can see from up there, Amy is not being bullied. In fact, she is being rude, cocky, and childish.

    There is a clear case of bullying here. Lucy Pargeter is continuously making comments to turn the others against Amy. Lucy is jealous of Amy and I truly hope she goes out early. I hope someone else in the camp tells Lucy she is out of order.

    So sad to see a group of adults targeting a young woman only because she is beautiful…I’m so disappointed with the swimmer , she knows what being bullied is and she joined the other ugly sisters…Mathew…what a coward.. They should all be ashamed…Amy never had a bad word to say to anyone and she was trying her best to fit in. Lucy is a bitter woman full of prejudices am Mo…what a sad sad OLD woman. I hope Amy does well for her self and proves that in the beauty industry there are some girls with brains and a heart.. All the best Amy xxx
    ps well done Joe for looking after Amy your prove to be the best human being there…
