Emily Andrea has defended Tamara Ecclestone in her latest column for OK!, after the star's child was brutally called an “ugly awful little thing."
"I feel like people are really cruel sometimes and to make comments about the appearance of a child is really unnecessary and wrong," she says.
The star also praises Any McPartlin for speaking publicly about his addition issues, and hails Strictly Come Dancing viewers who used social media to contact Shirley Ballas over fears for her health.

NO ONE SHOULD CRITICISE A CHILD'S APPEARANCE
Tamara Ecclestone felt forced to call out a troll on Instagram after they said her one-year-old daughter Serena was an “ugly awful little thing." That is terrible and this is exactly why I have been cautious about sharing my children’s faces online. I feel like people are really cruel sometimes and to make comments about the appearance of a child is really unnecessary and wrong.
In my opinion, making negative comments about people’s appearances in general is just very uncalled for. It’s no wonder we’re seeing a rise in people with body insecurities and people making enhancements to their bodies.
To me, appearance isn’t the most important thing about a person. We all look different and we’re all different shapes and sizes – what’s important is how someone is as a person.
It’s half term this week so I have lots of activities arranged to keep the kids entertained. It’s also Halloween so we’ll take the kids out trick-or-treating with some friends. They love getting dressed up and seeing all the houses decorated. It’s nice now Theo is a bit older – he can really enjoy it.
Theo has finished his first half a term at school so I think he was ready for the break. It’s a lot more full-on than nursery so it was a big adjustment for him, but thankfully he’s loving it. He especially loves reading and writing numbers, so hopefully he’ll be excited to go back next week!
In other news, it was great to see the Duchess of Cambridge and Ant McPartlin supporting a new charity project called Taking Action On Addiction. Ant apparently opened up to Kate about his own addictions with prescription painkillers and alcohol, and admitted that by the time he asked for help things had become “bad”.
In hindsight it’s easy to say you should have sought help earlier, but like many health conditions it’s often not that simple. Sometimes there is an element of making choices in life, but we also don’t know the circumstances behind addictions.
The reasons why someone may develop an addiction can be complicated. It could be any addiction, whether it be food, gambling, alcohol, drugs or smoking, but it’s great that Ant has opened up about his issues so publicly.
SOCIAL MEDIA CAN BE USED FOR GOOD
Shirley Ballas has revealed she booked an appointment with her doctor after Strictly Come Dancing viewers messaged her saying they could see lumps in her armpit during a recent episode of the show.
People were right to highlight this as lots of conditions can lead to lumps in your armpit and not all of them are serious. One of the things that can cause it is enlargement of the lymph nodes in the armpit. As part of examining your breasts, you should also check your armpits as breast cancer can spread to the lymph nodes there.
Shirley’s doctor will be checking to see if her armpit feels normal, but you should check your own breasts and armpits regularly. Any lump or bump, especially if it’s new, changing or growing, you should get checked out.
It’s great that the viewers pointed this out and it goes to show that social media can be used for good. I’m wishing Shirley well.
