Love Island beauty Emma-Jane Woodhams has been forced to apologise over her latest post.
The 21-year-old reality star was branded “disgusting” after she used the death of mother-of-three Leah Cambridge to promote waist trainers.
Leah tragically died this week after a bum lift operation in Turkey went tragically wrong.
Emma, who has a seven month old son, decided to use her death as a warning to others – and promote the trainers as a safer alternative.
But after mass criticism online, the brunette star took to social media to apologise to her fans.
She wrote: “I have made this point [about waist trainers], for a long while, many times, not just yesterday after a case in the news. It is a much wider issue and this was not written with disrespect.

“I have however apologised for any misunderstanding and offence caused by the post. Timing and wording may have been poor on my behalf.
“My prior posts, where I have said the same thing, are still on my Instagram as I have already been called a liar, if people would like to validate what I have said.”
A waist trainer is the process of using a steel boned corset to modify your waist into an hourglass shape, with semi-permanent results.
On Thursday, Emma shared a picture of herself wearing nothing but lingerie and a waist trainer.

She captioned the shot with: “You might have seen in the news today that these Brazilian bum lift surgeries everyone’s been getting are actually really dangerous and are fatal for every 1 in 3000 procedures !
“I have said it before and I’ll say it again ladies get yourself a @maskateertm waist trainer, squat till you drop and work with what ya mumma gave ya, for that hourglass figure.
“It’s safe, it’s easy and it gives you beautiful results that just enhance your natural shape under your clothes or more permanently over time I’ve been using mine for a good few months now and I’m in love [sic].”
