Made in Chelsea’s Mimi Bouchard was furious at Tiffany Watson about bodyshaming her in a video she posted online [Mimi Bouchard/Instagram]
Made In Chelsea’s Tiffany Watson, 23, and her boyfriend Sam Thompson, 25, had gone on a relationship break, only for her to discover that Sam had begun seeing their co-star Mimi Bouchard while the cast were in Ibiza.
Outraged Tiffany called Mimi, 20, a ‘f***ing dumpling’, clearly jibing at the Canadian’s weight and Mimi has kicked back at the insult by posting a video of herself ranting about bodyshaming.
When Tiffany was told about Mimi and Sam she cried to her best friends Olivia and Frankie, before launching into a rant about her boyfriend’s new love-interest.
She said: “He’s been messaging me saying ‘I’m in bed reading my book. He’ll say things like that and it’s b*******. You’re not in bed reading your f***ing book, you’re in bed f***ing Mimi.”

The couple’s break came with terms, which included a ban on either of them sleeping with another member of the MiC cast.
“I’ve been holding back this whole time because of him. I’ve come back out here and he’s in a relationship with a f***ing dumpling. Whatever, that’s obviously it for me.”, continued Tiffany.
The blonde beauty’s comments sparked outrage on social media, with Twitter users calling her out for ‘bodyshaming’ her love rival.
Mimi then posted an Instagram video kicking back at Tiffany, saying her co-star needs to be aware of the effect her comments will have on other people.

Wearing a bright red t-shirt, the new Made In Chelsea cast member said: “I had to make a video on this, it really hits home to me. I had to talk about bodyshaming and why you need to make sure to never do it. What you say about other people might have more of an effect on them than you might think.
“When people try saying mean things about me and try bringing me down for the way I look or how they think I am, it’s showing other people that it’s OK. Think before you speak and try being the most you as possible.
“I am so happy in the body that I am in. I’ve worked so hard for my body, although I’m not a six foot tall model. I don’t have to look like everybody else. The beauty about being you is your uniqueness. What someone says about you says more about them than it says about you.”
After fans tweeted Tiffany furiously condemning her for her remarks, she responded to Mimi on Twitter saying: “Definitely do not agree with or condone body shaming but in the heat of the moment we all say things out of anger.”.

But some of her followers were still not happy, with one accusing her of being unladylike for bodyshaming Mimi, with one writing: “A real lady knows how to behave also in the heat of the moment.. clearly you are far from being one”.
Tiffany responded to the Tweeter, saying: “Oh definitely not no, I’m a girl who is going to make mistakes occasionally that you get to watch and (some) judge.”
The bodyshaming attacks come after Sam’s older sister Louise Thompson recently attacked the new MIC co-hort, branding them ‘fame hungry h**s’
Sam Thompson’s ex Tiffany is also clearly intent on slamming any of Sam’s new love-interests: she recently warned his Celebrity Big Brother housemate Amelia Lily that she won’t be accepted by Made In Chelsea stars.
