I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Jess Eva has hit out at a troll who called her a "fat disgusting mutt" with her signature humour.

The radio host had been channelling Shakira while in the jungle and put on a belly dancing show for her campmates with her shirt pulled up.

After the dancing scene aired, Jess shared a disgusting message she received from a troll, who said, "Put some f***ing clothes on you fat pig. You make me physically sick when you dance around with your shirt up like u all that. You’re a fat disgusting mutt."

Jess' response? To dance in a bra and her partner's undies, of course!

"Ya know I get that some people don’t like 85kg of white chocolate," she wrote. "But I got this message the other day after the belly dance. This weekend I was looking at my just-turned four-year-old daughter. And I thought I’m at an age where these messages don’t phase me. But 10 years ago, these messages would probably spiral me into a state of diets and feeling like a fat, inferior piece of crap. And I don’t want her to ever feel like she’s not good enough as a result of someone’s opinion.

"This post isn’t to shame the people that write to me telling me I’m disgusting. It’s a post to every man and woman of any shape and size to love your guts, love your soul and love your life. People will always comment on what you should and shouldn’t be. Although we aren’t the centre of THE universe, you’re the centre of YOURS. We all deserve a happy and peaceful life, it’s the most important thing in the world," she continued.

"My daughter is overly clingy at the moment, so as I set her up on the iPad, watching Pepper Pig toys, I recorded the response to this Instagram message. I had no idea she was watching. But I’m also proud, because when she gets older and if she ever feels like she’s not good enough, I’m going to play her this video.

"Yes, I’m wearing my partner Norm’s undies, they’re really comfortable and it drives him nuts. No, I’m not going to open an OnlyFans account," she joked.

"PS – I love my guts! It’s got heaps of wine and really tasty food in it! How good’s livin!"

Jess' I'm A Celeb co-stars were quick to comment on the post, showing their love for the presenter.

"You have such an amazing attitude and what a great example you are setting for your daughter," Pettifleur Berenger commented.

"Yay!!! You are everything to me and us. Keep making every moment good or not so good fun. You are a perfect role model for your kids," Toni Pearen said.

Jess said she was proud her daughter saw her mum dancing while filming the video, saying if her four-year-old "ever feels like she’s not good enough" she'll show her this video. Photo: Instagram/Jess Eva
