The star admitted the comments left her feeling broken.

She said, “These words have an impact. It was horrible and it broke me for a little while. I went from the joy of having my baby girl and everything I had ever wanted to a sudden feeling of insecurity. It is not fair. ”

Danielle – who has shared her fitness progress with fans online in the past – went on to explain that she is happily getting back into shape at her own pace.

She said, “I never got into the situation where I had to lose my baby’s weight in six weeks to release a DVD for Christmas. I couldn’t manage.

“And I would never want to go on a liquid diet or go to those camps where it’s all about juice. It is not sustainable. If I only had fruit juice for 21 days then yes I would lose weight but it is not nutritional and as soon as you have a carb you will put it back.

Meanwhile, Danielle will also be planning happy future memories with childhood sweetheart Tom.

The two announced their engagement in March after revealing that they were expecting a child together.
