‘Even in full robes at a funeral someone can come on to you’ the star continued.
‘If you’re a woman there will be someone, usually a bloke, who will find something to sexualise you for.’
Kate went on to discuss her confusion over society’s obsession with weight as it’s never high on the list of priorities once life is over.

The Celebrity MasterChef added:‘I do a lot of funerals and never in a eulogy have I mentioned what size someone is.
‘I’ve talked about how much fun they’ve been and what they’ve achieved in their life and who they loved.’
Speaking about the mundanities that take up people’s lives, Kate added: ‘People on their deathbed never talk about dusting, they never talk about diets, they talk about the people who they loved.’

Kate’s candid interview comes after she was body-shamed by cruel internet trolls following an appearance on BBC Radio 2.
In February, Kate joined Jason Mohammad to front new BBC radio show Good Morning Sunday.
And while Kate flooded with positive comments about her enthusiastic hosting of the programme’s first show, she also received some negativity, with one troll commenting on her physique after a clip of her dancing was posted on social media.
The cheery presenter clearly doesn’t suffer fools gladly though and quickly hit back at the troll, who had called her a ‘fat a*** vicar’.
Bottley replied, saying: ‘My a*** and its fatness is none of your business. Kindly take your body-shaming nonsense elsewhere. No-one wants to hear it.’
