Love Island star Alexandra Cane has hit back at those who have criticised her two stone weight loss in an video.
The 28 year old reality star, who is currently enjoying a trip to Amsterdam, urged people to “take accountability for ourselves” after she received a scathing comment on her Instagram page.
Alexandra shared a message she received on her Instagram story which read: “I'm really disappointed in your recent transition from body positivity to weight lost advisor.
“It's just an unhealthy message. At first I gave you the benefit of the doubt and felt you were doing it for you. Now you're making money out of it. I'm disgusted and totally disappointed you have let so many young girls down.”
But the star, who recently lost two stone in weight, hit back, writing above the screenshot: “The reason why in this life you have to do things for yourself and nobody else. People will always have something negative to say. What matters is your own happiness.
“I'd be letting myself down if I had continued down a path that didn't make me feel good.”

She later wrote in another Instagram story post: “Stop body shaming. Curvy/skinny/athletic… Shaming is shaming FULL STOP. And it needs to STOP.” [sic]
Shutting down the criticism one final time as she arrived at her hotel in the Dutch city, she spoke in a lengthy video posted on her Instagram story.
She said: “I just wanna clear a few things up. Just in relation to the fitness, wellness stuff I’ve been posting because I just wanna draw a line under it now, because I wanna share my trip in Amsterdam with you guys and I just want it to be really fun and I don’t wanna have to address it again.

“I just want you guys to know that I would never, ever do anything that’s unnatural or a quick fix or anything like that. I just want you guys to understand that my fitness and wellness journey has been completely organic and authentic and I’ve put in a lot of hard work and dedication – mental and physically – to get to where I am.”
She added: “I just wanna inspire you guys really, I wanna motivate you and encourage you and support you that’s the point. I got myself out of my horrible place and into a good place and I just wanna share it so. Anyway, I’m not into detox teas or fad diets or this diet or that diet, just wait. Just wait. OK? Thank you.”

Continuing the video she then added: “I’ve done what I had to do to make myself feel better I’m only responsible for me and you are responsible for you so with that being said, let’s take accountability for ourselves and not hate on each other and be kind towards each other and support each other and celebrate each other. There’s no need for hate or bitterness or negativity just focus on you and stop putting responsibility on others for making you feel good.
“You have the power. Everything that you want to feel, you have the power within you to feel that way. So just own it.”

She then added a final message warning those who have accused her of getting liposuction to achieve her figure. She said: “One more thing, if I see another person commenting saying I’ve had liposuction of all things to get to where I am at the minute I’m about to go the hell off, because that is absolutely not what I’m about.
“Whatever anybody else chooses to do with their bodies that’s up to them but I’m all about working hard, dedication, commitment to all things in all areas – if you want it you can achieve it and I love putting gin hard work and that is what I’ve done so if anyone comes at me with the liposuction thing be gone.”
