Ashley spoke exclusively to OK! and discussed the feeling of pressure to "snap back" after giving birth.
She explained: "I wouldn’t say from anyone in particular, but it does upset me that it seems to be the narrative around postnatal bodies," she said. "I had Covid-19 around a month ago and I lost weight as I was so ill."
The former reality TV star added: "Alf was also ill and he ended up in hospital so that was obviously stressful and I wasn’t sleeping. I was continuing to breastfeed while being ill which was a challenge, and people celebrated my weight loss as if it was an achievement."
