New mum Binky slams Cheryl's post baby body

Cheryl came under fire from fans last week when she shared a picture of herself reclining on a boat while on holiday with boyfriend Liam Payne.

The shot showed the singer in a bikini and kaftan but all anyone noticed (which we guess was the point) was her tiny waist and super toned abs.

Cheryl only gave birth at the end of March and many believed her weight loss to be too dramatic and too soon with some followers even branding her a 'bad role model' for other new mothers.

And now Binky Felstead is getting involved too. The former Made in Chelsea starlet was speaking to New! Magazine and said the image of Cheryl "was not something new mothers want to see", as it's depiction of being a new mum was unrealistic.

Binky, who gave birth to daughter India in June and who she introduced to fans in her spin off show Born in Chelsea, added: "It’s a bit in your face.

"Cheryl hasn’t been in the public eye since having the baby and so she’s looking amazing now. That isn’t real life.

"I was papped breastfeeding with a blanket over me and looked truly exhausted, and that’s what mummies want to see - not someone lounging in the sun.

"But good on her, you can’t bash anyone for wanting to get their body back."

But Binky took to her own Instagram account last night to claim her comments were taken out of context and to say she thought Cheryl was looking 'amazing'.

What do you think of Binky's comments? Let us know over on Facebook and Twitter.
