Julia Bradbury has insisted she is a healthy weight as she shared her BMI, after sparking concern with a bikini photo recently.

Countryfile star Julia, 50, shared a photo of herself lapping up the UK sun last week, which sparked a barrage of concerned comments from followers.

Fans were quick to point out her prominent collarbone as one wrote: "Julia I have always admired your fabulous figure and fitness. But you look so thin at the moment. I do hope you’re ok and well."

Another shared: "Julia I don’t mean to be horrible but it saddens me to see you looking so thin. I hope you are ok."

Julia has since hit back at the comments, some of which were incredibly cruel, and insisted she's in good health.

As she posted a photo to show of her figure while in a black sports bra and leggings she insisted he was a "healthy weight" in the caption.

She wrote to her 100,000 followers: "For those of you genuinely concerned : I'm 5ft 9 inches tall (1.75mtrs) & weigh 9 stone 6 lbs.

"According to the NHS BMI indicator my BMI measurement is 19.5. The healthy weight range for my height is between 8st 13lb and 12st 1lb."


Julia continued: "So I'm a healthy weight and 'I should keep up the good work!' according to the website."

Addressing her trolls her asked: "For those of you just trolling: How do you rate?" Julia then shared the link to the NHS BMI calculator.

Fans were quick to share their support in the comments as one said: "Firstly it’s no ones business, secondly it’s how you feel in your own skin not what a scale says".

Another added: "You look fabulous Jools x". While a third wrote: "Ignore the haters and trolls Julia. You look very fit and healthy and you're very inspiring. Stay strong Julia" followed by a flexing bicep emoji and smiling face emoji.

It comes after the Countryfile star revealed the horrific abuse she had received from some trolls.

Speaking on Lorraine on Thursday 17 June, she said: "Some of the comments, they weren’t kind and that’s what social media has really brought on. Saying that you’re ill, saying 'You look like you’ve had chemotherapy.'

"Here’s the problem, I‘ve got skinny collarbones and I can’t do anything about that."

Talking about the abusive comments, the mum-of-three said: "'She needs a bag of chips!' I don’t think the chips go straight to your collarbones or even a dirty burger or anything else you could eat."
