She began: ‘I knew it was going to happen to me because every time I’m on TV someone comments on my weight, I just knew it was going to happen.

I could do one of two things, I could ignore it, or I could tackle it. I found it funny, I could show people who follow me some resilience.’

Speaking of the comments she added: ‘Someone wrote, this is Jayde Adam’s rocking up to Strictly, with a picture of the Michelin man, and I laughed!’

Jayde continued: ‘I don’t want people to say stuff like that but these people want to have a reaction.’

‘The most useful thing to do is to not get at them, it’s to show resilience because it’s never going to stop.’

It comes as Jayde took to Instagram on Sunday to share the last photo with her sister Jenna, who died in 2011 aged 26 from an inoperable brain tumor.

The comedian dedicated her dance on Saturday’s show to her beloved sibling, admitting that she would grieve the loss for the rest of her life.

Jayde also poignantly shared pictures of the pair as they danced together in their teens as well as a shot of a young Jenna beaming for the camera.

She penned: ‘Last picture we ever had together. Her love for me was so strong, I’ll never ever feel unloved in my life’.

‘I will grieve my loss for her for the rest of my life, it is the most important thing that has ever happened and I am beyond grateful to be able to channel my grief through creativity, thank you @bbcstrictly @karenhauer’.

This is Jenna Adams everyone, she will never be forgotten. And yes she would be so proud of me, astounded @claudiawinkle said her name and very jealous I’m on Strictly, we loved this show together’.

During Saturday’s show Jayde spoke about the lyrics to Bette Middler’s Wind Beneath My Wings which was chosen for their spectacular routine.

She said: ‘The lyrics really resonate… she was two years older than me and she died 11 years ago. I didn’t just lose a sister, I lost a best friend, a dance partner. This song in particular is very special to me and my family and I hope I can do it justice this week.’
