“But would you fall into the obese category?” with Coote confirming she would: “But guess what? Mentally, I’m much more healthy.
“I’m happy, I’m confident in myself and mental health is imperative as well. It’s not just about the way we look,” added the guest.
“I get that, I don’t want to make this personal, it’s about whether we should be celebrating obesity in the middle of a pandemic,” Morgan commented.
