Millie Mackintosh has revealed that as a teenager she was teased for having long legs.

Her pins are arguably one of the main attractions on the Made in Chelsea show, however Millie says her classmates made her feel uncomfortable about her enviable body shape.

Millie, 22, told Now Magazine: ‘At school people used to call me names like “Sparrow Legs” because I had such long, gangly limbs.’

‘But you have to rise above that. My mum always told me to be confident.’

‘I learnt a long time ago how to deal with playground bullying. It’s a life lesson

‘Don’t give them the time of day, they just want a reaction.

‘I’m happy with my body and I know that’s hard for a lot of girls to say.’

Having posted multiple photos of herself in saucy bikinis, Millie now understands how great her body looks.

‘Both my parents and my sister are slim and I’ve got tall grandparents,’ she tells Celebs On Sunday.

‘They’re 6ft – or they were. They’ve shrunk a bit now.’

I don't think anyone will ever bully her for her looks again - she's beautiful.
