Love Island's Arabella Chi has revealed how she was blacklisted by top fashion designers due to the size of her behind.

The 29-year-old has been working as a catwalk model since she was 16 and has shared how she would have to "constantly fight" for her bum as modelling agencies urged her to lose weight.

"I love my bum but I think it is because I’ve learned to love it. It’s what makes me proud," Arabella told The Sun.

"My hip measurement was always a measurement that modelling agencies told me I had to get down. But when they measure your hips, it’s actually your bum. I used to cast for really big shows and for Fashion Week and they would always tell me, if you didn’t have a bum you’d walk for Chanel and Dior… and I’m like, I can’t do anything about it.

"Agents used to say to me, ‘You need to lose weight in your bum’. I went to Milan, and they said, ‘You’re bottom-heavy’. So I was constantly fighting my bum!"

She added that it's been "amazing" to see how the world has changed and how everyone wants a bigger bum now.

The reality star's perky bum has been a big help to her lately as she started an OnlyFans account to share exclusive photos and videos with her followers on how to get a bum like hers.

While OnlyFans is often associated with more explicit content, Arabella says she will never do porn and will "never ever be tempted" to do so.

She added that she will only focus on "body and fitness" as so many people are interested in how she keeps fit.

However, Arabella said she had a lot of respect for those who are baring all on the platform because "they make an absolute fortune".
