Jacqueline Jossa has revealed she had a “mental breakdown” after being unable to fit into a pair of shorts from high street fashion brand Zara.

The I’m A Celebrity winner hit out after trying on a size large in a pair of shorts, but Jacqueline, who has previously revealed she’s a size 12, said they didn’t fit.

Taking to her Instagram story, the mother-of-two branded their sizing “offensive”, saying she worries about the impact on women’s self esteem.

The 27 year old told fans after enjoying a shopping trip: “Loads of people asked me about my Zara haul because I went shopping the other night.

“To be honest, I had a mental breakdown yesterday basically because the sizing in Zara is offensive. Just not having it really. So I had to take a whole load of stuff back.”

Jacqueline then gave a shout out to fashion brand In The Style, who she has a range with, saying their sizing is “so good”.


“Do you know what? I haven't shopped in for so long for anything but in the sale and it just goes to show me really that the sizing for InTheStyle is so good. That is what it is meant to be,” she explained.

Jacqueline added: “I was shocked when I got home yesterday honestly. I'm a size 12 and the large wouldn't fit me from Zara.

“I had to get the extra large which is not a problem but you know people who are over a size 14, size 16, size 18, do they just not shop in Zara?

“I didn't know that, I wasn't aware of that and I haven't shopped in Zara for years. So I kind of remember why I don't shop in there anymore.

“Someone said they're a size 10 to 12 and they couldn't fit into the medium or large, which is just ridiculous. How could a 10 to a 12 be a large? I'm sorry but what?! Anyway, don't feel bad about it.

“I really like this skirt so I've got it in an extra large and I mean, it's not the most amazing feeling in the world but at the end of the day – I ain't an extra large. Size ain't nothing but a number, baby.”

Jacqueline recently revealed she refuses to put pressure on herself when it comes to staying fit and working out.

She told MailOnline: “Fitness wise I just like to watch Daniel in the gym and that's about it really. I'll be honest with you I'm just sat here eating a packet of Monster Munch. I'm good at making excuses.

“I don't ever put pressure on myself but I do want to start doing stuff purely for fitness and not for vanity.

“Daniel is in more of a routine for sure. He trains pretty much every day or goes for a run but the thing is his is mental.

“If he doesn't work out he's like ‘I don't feel right’ – it's just one of those things, he feels like he needs to do it for his brain.”
