Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha shared a very honest post on Instagram last night and inspired her fans and followers to “dare to bare”. She promoted the slogan “No Body Shame” by sharing unedited and unfiltered snaps of her body. The 55-year-old TV star revealed her curvy figure in her underwear to show the difference lighting can make to a photo and added a “cellulite warning” to the post.
