Zara McDermott reveals she lived on a bag of carrots a day before appearing on 'Love Island'.

The reality star has been facing serious abuse from trolls online with one calling her a 'fat whale.'

In an interview with The Sun she addressed the people writing these comments;

'To the trolls who posted so many nasty comments about my weight, I want you to know that before being signed to Love Island, I was almost starving myself and eating just a bag of carrots a day.'

What an amazing day today is. Not only am I on my way to the Bahamas after an amazing time in Miami, I’m also SO excited to announce that I have designed my own clothing collection for @lasulaboutique! I would never want to put my name to designs that weren’t my own. Instead I worked endlessly with a designer for months, drawing up my own pieces with a simple pen and paper and spending a lot of my time on the development process. Watching those pieces come to life has been such an amazing journey. Seeing all the samples come in and making a lot of changes to each piece to make the collection perfect was something I felt was important. I listened to you all when designing my collection too.. I took note of some of my looks that you guys loved the most and have messaged me about, and have recreated those with a new twist. For example, my red cape dress that a lot of people loved from when I left the Villa (I still get DM’s to this day about it!) I have recreated in a few different colours, and a different and more detailed neckline! There are SO many pieces in the collection, I have made sure there is something for everyone as it’s SO BIG! My main priorities are and have always been quality and affordability... I can’t wait for you all to see it, it’s going to be launching very soon so keep your eyes peeled ❤️❤️ thank you so much everyone for your ongoing support and I hope you love it as much as I do! And thank you so much @lasulaboutique for believing in me. I hope I have done you guys proud and I’m so lucky to be working with such an incredible brand

'I remember one day, my friends had noticed how my weight had dropped and that I had skipped meals. They took me to Tesco and begged me to pick something to eat.'

'I don’t want to sit back and let people abuse me online. For me to call someone out and say they are body-shaming – I hope it makes that person look like an absolute tool.'

Zara isn't the only one facing abuse online.

One user took to social media and called her 'Love Island' co-star Laura Anderson, 'ugly, pathetic and desperate.'

Laura responded, 'You're really pretty. Have a good Christmas.'
