The influencer explained that while her body has changed, she is learning to love her body and is ‘grateful’ for it.

“Some people think I’m crazy for signing up to do a show like Big Brother, let alone doing it twice! It’s pretty bloody daunting to put yourself out there, and to be filmed 24/7…to appear on national television with no special lighting or filters or apps,” she admitted.


“I was 25 years old last time round without a care in the world! This time, I was older (and wiser), but my body shape had changed…there were a few more lumps and bumps, some scars…and it took me a bit to accept that.

“But you know what? This body got me through hell and back. And I’m so grateful for it!” she told her followers.

The influencer, who has mentioned that Instagram is often ‘sparkly and shiny’, has been open about trying to be more honest with what she shares on social media.

Her followers were quick to praise the star for being so open about her insecurities.

“You are absolutely so beautiful inside and out, and I think we should all be proud and amazed at what our bodies are capable of,” wrote a fan.

“Absolutely stunning Tully, the changes in you since that first season of Big Brother till now, both inside and out is easy to see. And there is obviously gonna be more of it ahead in your future,” another gushed.

“Hon, you don’t even know how much your body will change over your lifetime. And it will be attractive, awesome and amazing regardless of what it looks like or what lingerie is designed for it. Celebrate every stage,” another added.

Tully previously admitted to Yahoo Lifestyle that her biggest ‘fear’ going on Big Brother this year was that her body wasn’t the same as it was in 2013.

Talking candidly about watching the show play out, she said it was ‘really hard’ to look at herself.

“I’ve definitely found myself watching certain scenes and wanting it to hurry up, wanting it to get off the air like, ‘Oh my god, I’m awful there.’

“With the social media images they supply us to help promote the show, I very rarely like any of them because I’m just like, I look so old, ugly,” she confessed.

“People suffer from body dysmorphia and self-confidence issues, and self-love issues every day. But yeah, we’re no different.”
