Amanda Seyfried and Arielle Charnas

The Mean Girls actress has been embroiled in a social media row with the blogger this week after she claimed she was "glorifying an unhealthy body image" by showing off her very slim frame in a bikini snap.

Arielle Charnas, aka Instagram's Something Navy, posted a beach-ready picture of herself with the caption: "Proud of my body after two kids" and it appears the image and the idea behind it really irked another mum, Seyfried. Her comment under Charnas' photo matches the one Seyfried posted, and she posted a screenshot to show that Charnas had blocked her, which you can see on the Daily Mail article linked above. "BUT if you don't acknowledge how your wealth made your workouts/body possible, you're just perpetuating the patriarchal (totally unrealistic) notion that mothers should "bounce back" after childbirth, an impossibility for anyone who can't afford ample childcare (which is nearly everyone in this country)". We have to back ourselves up- not run away from the issues it presents. Each of us has a chance to back ourselves- especially on this platform.

"To all who feel bullied or thin-shamed during our recent social media discussion: If you know me or are familiar with any of my beliefs or stances you'll recognize that it isn't in my character to tear down anyone for 'being who they are, '" she wrote.

The 33-year-old actress posted a Robert Frost quote to her Instagram - "Education is the ability to listen to nearly anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence" - captioned with a thoughtful apology.

So confused I couldn’t eat, says Love Island’s Amy Hart
The other new arrival is 23-year old clothing store manager Francesca Allen from Essex who has her sights set on Curtis and Anton. Amy Hart has revealed that the Love Island producers forced her to eat following her break-up with Curtis Pritchard.

"Why am I being bullied for posting myself in a bathing suit?" The comment, which was left under a bikini photo of Arielle, asked the influencer to acknowledge that her "wealth" and "privilege" played a significant part in her ability to "bounce back" after giving birth to two children. However, as I'm acutely aware, there's a price tag for the group of people who find themselves with a platform to stand on.

She then seemingly addressed Seyfried and her friend's suggestions for how she should use her platform. Hold yourselves accountable instead of just using the terms above, ' but in the end, the actress confessed that she regrets trying to make an example out of the other woman like that. Some commenters called the post "tone deaf" and accused her of enforcing "the patriarchal view that women should look a certain way". She captioned the selfie with, "Goodnight, all, and thanks for a much needed discussion. And if you're taking advantage of that- EMPOWER".

Seyfried then hopped on the gram and posted her own thoughts on her feed.

In a comment on the post, Seyfried's friend went off.
