Alyssa Milano defends Netflix show Insatiable over ‘fat-shaming’ controversy

Toby Ingham, a UKCP registered psychotherapist, explains how the original intention of the show likely became lost in translation.

“The criticism is powerful, passionate and hard to argue against. It does seem as though the programme makers may not have thought this through, though that seems unlikely,” he says.

“The criticism picks up on the show making fat a phobic issue that demands ‘female obedience,’ in Woolf’s words. It is hard to come back from that kind of comment. This will stick.

“It is likely that the programme will put pressure on the mental health of young viewers,” he continues.

Deferential, nervous but gloriously happy! Body language experts reveal what Meghan’s body language REALLY says about her first outing with the Queen

Psychotherapist Toby Ingham added: ‘The body language of the Queen and Meghan is warm, friendly, they look to be enjoying the time they are spending together.

‘There is formality to the occasion as they step from the train, but the overall tone is relaxed and warm.

‘When sitting together they move in towards each other and enjoy a shared joke. The impression of spontaneity and warmth.’

During the bridge opening ceremony, the Duchess of Sussex was seen fidgeting with her outfit and hair in a rare lapse of poise.

However Mr Ingham offered a different take on Meghan’s ‘fidgeting’ while she was seated next to the Queen, noting it might have been a sign that she was bored of a conversation.

Explaining the behaviour, he said: ‘It appears that the man on Meghan’s right is the cause of her fidgetiness. 

‘It looks like she is rather distracted by his interest, information and conversation than anything to do with the Queen.
