Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer hits out at Twitter haters who called her fat!

by Lisa McGarry

Dani Harmer has taken to Twitter to hit back at some online trolls.

The Tracey Beaker star has shot into the spotlight in recent weeks, since being confirmed as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing. The tiny actress will be partnered by Italian Stallion Vincent Simone but what should have been an exciting time has been slightly marred by some social media users.

Harmer took to the micro blogging website last night and hit back, after some users called her ‘fat’ chubby’ and ‘overweight’. She tweeted:

“Hate on me as much as you like! But I like being curvy!! #ShakeWhatYourMummaGaveYa xxxx”

She later added:

“Don’t worry about me #harmerettes I shall be fine!! #StrongSausage #muchLove to you all xxxxxxxxx

“You guys always cheer me up!!!! Xxxx”

Awww we love her spirit.

Despite the negativity, it seems that Dani is still enjoying her training and she tweeted yesterday saying:

‘Day 2 of training and I can’t wait! Hope me and @vincentsimone don’t end up like we did last night xxx’

She is also connecting with a number of other Strictly stars and after seeing professional dancer Brendan Cole – who is partnering Victoria Pandleton – on TV last night Harmer joked:

‘Watching @TheBrendan_Cole on mr & mrs!! Strictly is taking over ever channel!! Your wife is stunning!! How did you manage that lol xxxx’

Dani is best known for her role in BBC children’s show The Story of Tracy Beaker/Tracy Beaker Returns and Tracy Beaker Survival Files. She also played Molly Venables in the BBC sitcom After You’ve Gone and has her own TV show called Dani’s House. A spin-off series has been confirmed, which will be called ‘Dani’s Castle’.

She’ll take to the dancefloor for the first time when Strictly returns on 5th October and we cant wait to see her debut. Are you excited? Leave your comments below….
