Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson has responded to Lucy Watson and told the Made In Chelsea star she has always said she is "beautiful."

Lucy had hit out at Marnie on Twitter earlier today, after Marnie had commented on her appearance and referred to her as a "skeleton." She said there was no need for the Geordie Shore star to "insult" her body, and now Marnie has claimed she wasn't being "nasty."

Marnie had been discussing the figures of the Made In Chelsea girls in her weekly column with Star magazine. After previously tweeting that she was envious of their bodies, Marnie backtracked and claimed she 'doesn't think she would like to be that skinny.'

She commented on Lucy's figure particularly, prompting Lucy to call her out for her actions. Lucy had replied to Marnie's recent tweet about bodyshaming, where she shared a naked selfie to assure people she was happy with her size.

Lucy said: "@MarnieGShore yeah you look great! Shame you then had to go and insult my body to make yourself feel better."

Now, Marnie has responded. She tweeted: "It was a opinion, you are thin, not in a nasty way. Always said your beautiful. But if u wana be nasty I can too (sic)."

Lucy, meanwhile, posted a generic tweet that read: "Girls think it's out of order for someone to call them fat then go around publicly calling another girl a skeleton #StopBodyShaming."

That then led Marnie to accuse Lucy of "over exaggerating."

She said in a second tweet: "God girl you really need to chill out. No need to start preeching sh*t over a comment. I smell over exaggeration."

Marnie added to fans: "So .... Me having a column could be slightly dangerous I really don't think before I speak and I NEVER think I'm in the wrong. Bad combo."
