On 22 April 2015, Jamelia was on the Loose Women (ITV1) panel where the topic was a discussion about whether plus-sized clothing should be marketed towards overweight teenagers.
The former pop star said:
“I don’t beleive stores should stock clothes below or above a certain weight. They should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can’t find a size.”

This comment obviously shocked the panel who read a number of tweets heading to the show direct from veiwers – including these below:
Jamelia: I do not think it’s right to facilitate people living an unhealthy lifestyle. #loosewomen

The topic comes the same day when it was announced that Eloise Parry died from taking ‘diet pills’ she purchased on the internet.
Do you agree / disagree with Jamelia’s comments?
