The new voice of the Top 40 is having the last laugh after years of emotional, physical and racial bullying.

Former model Jameela Jamil, 26, who took over The Official Chart on Radio 1 this month, said she was called a “fat P***” at school.

She said: “School was horrific for me, constantly an outcast for being a geek.”

Insults were scrawled across her school locker in make-up and she said: “I’ve been every kind of bullied.

“I look back at my school journals and they’re full of self-hatred, of me condemning myself for not being prettier, richer, more popular.”

But Jameela, the first solo woman host of Sunday’s chart show, said she has since grown to love her looks.

She said: “I’ve got an old-fashioned figure.

"Back in the Sixties girls had boobs, a tummy and wide hips.

"That’s what a woman looks like.

“I’ve got love handles. I’m built for comfort and I like that about myself.”
