Former EastEnders star Melissa Suffield was praised by fans as she celebrated her “wobbly body” in a clip shared to social media.
The star, 30, played Lucy Beale on the BBC soap between 2004 and 2010, but since leaving the show has become a social media sensation, often sharing posts about body positivity with her fans.
The star welcomed her son River with husband Robert Brendan in 2020.
In her latest Instagram post, the star posed in bright blue lingerie on her bed and filmed herself dancing in a feel-good video.
In the caption, she wrote: “13 seconds of a body wobbling, to remind you that a wobbly body is totally NORMAL. We spend so long picking ourselves apart, and it feels so *lonely*, we start to think we're the only ones who look a certain way”.
The star then added: “In fact, there's SO many other bodies like ours- we're actually pretty damn ordinary! So, this is 13 seconds to remind you just how normal your body is. And how WONDERFUL that is. What's your favourite wobbly bit? Let's hear 'em! And then let's CELEBRATE them.”
The post was a huge hit with fans, with many offering praise for Melissa’s body positivity in the comments.
One follower wrote: “You are wonderful! Hoorah for jiggle!”, while another wrote: “We all have wobbly bits, and they are all fabulous”.
Someone else wrote: “There isn’t a single part of my body that doesn’t jiggle. Actually I tell a lie, my toes don’t, my jiggles remind me of the amazing process my body made to grow my 3 beautiful boys.”
A fourth person commented: “This is excellent. Let’s normalise that our bodies can jiggle and still be hottttttt”.
The star regularly posts photos celebrating her body and previously hit out at trolls, saying she “doesn’t care” what people think.
Last year, Melissa shared a video where she is initially seen wearing black trousers and a black sleeveless top but then covers the screen and appears in animal print lingerie.
She wrote on the video: “DMs strangers have left me ‘dancing around in your underwear is not feminism’, put it away’.”
She shared more messages she has received including: “’You *can* be body positive with your clothes on, you know’.”
She also tells how she received messages saying: “’Why do you keep saying post baby body, your kid is 2 years old’” and was even told: “’your body is disgusting’” with one troll saying: “’Nothing nice or classy about it’.”
She then added to the video: “I don’t care what you think of me and that gives me power.”
