She is only a dress size 6 but petite star Dani Harmer has been targeted by vile internet trolls over her weight since appearing in Strictly Come Dancing.
The Tracy Beaker actress has admitted she gets upset when people say she looks fat on TV.
She said: 'It does upset me in a way. Everyone looks bigger than they are on the telly.
'But I’m a size 6, so it’s a bit funny when people turn around and say “You’re fat”. I’m less than the size of an average woman.'
Size 6 Tracey Beaker actress Dani Harman has undergone Lipoglaze treatment to get rid of her flabby tummy
Although her fans think she looks
great in her tiny sequined leotards on the dancefloor Dani, like many
slim women, claims that she has stubborn areas of fat that won't budge
no matter how hard she is training with partner Vincent Simone for the
gruelling dance show.
to look her best on TV the 23-year-old actress took a break from her
busy Strictly schedule to have some non-invasive liposuction on her
tummy at a Harley Street clinic to get rid of a small parcel of flabby
skin around her belly which dancing couldn't tone.
The treatment, called Lipoglaze, removes stubborn areas like muffin tops, flabby tummies and bingo wings by freezing fat cells.

Pressured: Despite following a healthy diet and lifestyle and looking stunning, Dani felt she wanted to get rid of excess fat on her stomach after vile internet trolls abused her on Twitter for looking 'fat'
It is a new technique which already has a celebrity following.
Dani said: 'I'm very fit and healthy and have a great diet, but there was a small area around my tummy which wouldn't shift.
'Like everyone on Strictly I want to look good and I loved using Lipoglaze.
Dani, who has been in showbusiness since she was six and has starred in kids' show Tracey Beaker for the last ten years, is hoping Strictly will help her to move on to more adult roles.
The only man in her life currently is her dance partner Vincent after she split with her boyfriend, TV assistant director Graeme Livingstone.
She said: 'It is a brilliant way of shifting those stubborn areas of fat.'

Lunch-time liposuction is becoming increasingly popular with celebrities of both sexes who want a quick beauty fix – and don't want to go under the knife.
Lipoglaze is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment which kills off fat cells in one 60-minute session.
The brand new treatment is available in the UK for the first time and has been launched by leading beauty spa treatments company LoveLite.
The Lipoglaze cyrogenic machine works by first gently heating and then rapidly cooling the target area. This causes the fat cells to crystallise and permanently destroys up to a third of fatty deposits per session. The body then naturally eliminates this waste tissue over the next few weeks.
The machines are being sold by LoveLite to salons and spas throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East and America.
Debra Robson-Lawrence, co-founder of LoveLite with Donnamarie McBride said: 'We loved working with Dani.
'This just shows even super-fit dancers need a little extra help with those stubborn areas.'
