Ulrika Jonsson has launched into a bizarre social media tirade about her own breasts, complaining they’ve shrunk after previously ‘inflating’ in size due to the menopause.
The presenter, 52, took to Instagram on Friday to share a lengthy post lamenting her own cleavage, telling fans she’s ‘hated them since they arrived,’ even after she had them reduced in 2009.
Last month Ulrika also took to Instagram to thank her friends for helping her through ‘very dark episodes,’ after she split from her husband Brian Monet in April.

In her post, Ulrika told her fans that she was struggling to cope with her breasts after being told she had to order special bras to fit her fluctuating size.
Complaining they’d increased due to the menopause, even after she had a reduction in 2009 and lost a huge amount of weight, the star told fans that she’s struggling with the size again.
Posting a snap that featured various sketches of breasts in all shapes and sizes, Ulrika penned: ‘From 3 weeks ago: ‘The Unhappiness Breasts Bring’ T*ts. Boobs. Knockers. Whatever you call them.
‘I’ve hated mine since before they arrived. Mainly because they were late and unexpectedly big. So much so that they would often enter a room minutes before I did and made me feel fat and cumbersome.’

Gone: Ulrika’s breasts have fluctuated in size over the years, and she underwent a reduction in 2009, but complained in her post they’ve increased in size again
Ulrika then continued: ‘Reduced them in 2009 – not myself, a professional surgeon. Asked for a ‘Kate Moss’ (ie, flat because that is the most appealing, in my view) but had to have something to fit ‘my frame’.
‘Then, years later they were inflated by the sodding Menopause.
‘And now, I’ve unintentionally, unexpectedly lost weight and went to be measured for a new bra because my paracetamols won’t fill the hammock I’m currently wearing, only to be told I’m a nightmare size because I’m tiny but need a big cup because I’ve ‘lost volume’.
(Yes, know about specialist bra companies and that’s where I’ll be turning).
‘But seriously, t*ts. You get on my t*ts. I wanted to cry in the changing rooms. With all that excess skin and stupid bra measurement. #selfpity.’
Thinking: It comes after Ulrika took to social media last month to thank her friends for their support, after going through ‘very dark episodes over a turbulent two years’
It comes after Ulrika took to social media last month to thank her friends for their support, after going through ‘very dark episodes over a turbulent two years.’
She wrote: ‘Had no idea I’d bored you with so many but need to make this one count.’
‘So I want pay tribute to my sista-hood. To my amazing girlfriends who have kept me upright over these past two years and particularly during a few, very dark episodes.’
‘I genuinely couldn’t find my way forward; couldn’t raise my head and couldn’t make sense of life’ during those tough periods.
‘Your unwavering support; your kind words; your truths and your sharing has helped get me here. And now I’m ready to put my dancing shoes on.
‘I love you more than I hate today’s vile hangover (a whole bottle of rum is too much apparently – who knew?)’ she said, tagging the friends that have helped her.
‘I’m now heading downstairs to carry on cooking. Or puke. It’s one or the other. Have a lovely Christmas, everyone.’ she signed off.
Over: Ulrika announced her split from Brian Monet in April 2019 after 11 years of marriage
Ulrika announced her split from Brian Monet in April 2019 after 11 years of marriage.
She has spoken candidly about her insecurities during their union, admitting she felt ‘repulsive’ during their sexless marriage.
The broadcaster previously admitted that she became ‘quite insecure’ as a result.
She told Metro: ‘It had a really detrimental effect on me. I started disliking myself; my body; I felt repulsive and started shutting myself off physically and psychologically.
‘I became quite insecure about myself. I think intimacy is crucial. We all know that as relationships mature, sex is no longer the swinging from the chandeliers stuff and I’ve always found that settled stage quite reassuring.
‘But there has to be some intimacy in a relationship in order to sustain it.’
