Reality TV star Megan McKenna revealed she was once on the receiving end of radio host Steve Allen's vile comments after he labelled her “ugly” and “fake”.
The 29-year-old shared a shocking clip from April 2016, when the controversial radio host savagely laid into Megan in a series of viscous comments.
The star labelled the LBC broadcaster a “bully” and defended Strictly Come Dancing star Tilly Ramsay after the presenter branded her a “chubby little thing” live on air.
In the shocking clip, Steve said after reading out some quotes from her: "I mean she really is ugly. I mean this is the one who's ugly and abuses the privilege.
"You know when they say 'lived in face', in her case 'squatters'… it's all a bit fake."
In another clip from 2017, Steve discussed Megan's debut solo single knocking Taylor Swift from the number one position, even though he didn't think it was a big achievement.
While discussing her filming in Nashville he said: "As long as she stays there I don't really care."
The 67-year-old then went on to critique her TV career saying: "She would probably be appearing at your local library next," and then told listeners to "put your fingers in your ears" as he queued up her track.
Fans rushed to show support and encouragement for the star on Instagram, where Megan shared the clip with the caption: "#bekind Showing my support for @tillyramsay and Gemma [Collins] x."
"Wow babe I’m so sorry this kind of people even allowed to speak… you are gorgeous and amazing," wrote one user.
Former TOWIE star Gemma Collins, who was also once the target of Steve's jibes added: "He’s a p*** take!!!"
Megan's sister Milly added: "Disgusting how someone can be allowed to air such hate."
The post came after Tilly, 19, was fat-shamed by the presenter, leading Megan to issue to public statement.
Tilly is the youngest competitor in the new series and one of the youngest in the show’s 17-year history.
The star, who is the daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay, also took to social media to blast the host, saying: “Steve please feel free to voice your opinions, however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance. It’s such a shame that someone is trying to make such a positive experience negative.
“This isn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last comment made about my appearance. But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19.”
