“I’m incredibly proud of the way Nadia with her huge gallows sense of humour goes about this,” Mark defined to HELLO!. “I think it’s an extension of who she is – she’s very funny, she’s very witty, she’s very self-deprecating. But I hate these terms like ‘brave’. She is what she is, it makes her a more powerful woman and I think she’s a fabulous role model.”

Nadia responded: “Aww, you’re going to make me cry!” The pair share daughters Maddie and Kiki-Bee, however the TV star revealed they do not share their dad’s opinion when it comes to Nadia’s candid photos. 

“The girls will go: ‘Oh my god, it’s so embarrassing! Oh mum, I can’t believe you did that thing with your stomach.’ And they’re mortified,” Nadia joked, earlier than sharing a candy hack to encourage self-confidence in her daughters.

Speaking of the response she will get from her followers after displaying off her curves, the doting mum defined: “Every time I post something I’ll get a thousand messages and I read every single one. I copy and paste them and just send them here and there to the girls, and say: ‘You don’t have to answer me but I just want you to read this.’ I want to play a part in changing the narrative.”
