I’m A Celeb’s Snoochie proudly shows birthmark after sharing ‘catfish’ concerns

Snoochie Shy was praised by ITV viewers for proudly showing off her birthmark after years of hiding it on Sunday night's episode of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

In a candid discussion with Frankie Bridge and Naughty Boy, the BBC Radio 1Xtra star, who shared a throwback snap of her before going on the show, expressed fears that people would think she was a "catfish" after appearing on the show without any make-up.

"One of my main things coming in here, and I said it to my mum and the guy I'm seeing, 'I think people are going to think I'm a catfish. I'm not going to look like my Insta.'

"Insta is your best angles, you've got sick lighting, you've got make-up on. I don't edit my face, but obviously, I'll put like… if I've got spots, I hide it, with my birthmark I cover it with make-up," she said.


Snoochie went on to admit that she had "muted" the word catfish from her Instagram comments.

Speaking of the battle she has faced with accepting her birthmark, Snoochie said: "No one really knows, except from my family and friends, nobody knows.'

Naughty Boy told her: "I think people are going to admire you for it."

Frankie later said in the Telegraph: "I think Snoochie came in here thinking her birthmark was an imperfection. I don't think she could be any further from the truth."

Speaking later, Snoochie admitted that a weight had been lifted from her shoulders.

"I actually feel much better for being here and having my birthmark out," she said.

"I know it sounds so stupid, but I just feel like me and I think I'm just realising that even if people do say something about it, it says more about them than it does me."

Viewers were left emotional at home as they commended the star for talking about her birthmark.

One person tweeted: "Relate to snoochie with the birthmark insecurity, mine on my leg is my biggest insecurity and I've spent years covering it and having consultations about surgery but it makes me unique but it's a long road to learning how to love yourself and all your insecurities #ImACeleb."

Someone else added: "I have a scar that I've had all me life I honestly don't care what people say about it. I've had all names under sun. But it's a scar from an illness I survived so I'm happy with it. Snoochie don't worry about what anyone says about birthmark #ImACeleb."

A third wrote: "This just proves how we view ourselves is not always how others view us! Snoochie is so sweet and this whole birthmark thing resonates so much."

Another added: "Snoochie is so stunning and it's sad she felt she had to hide her birthmark."

Others even expressed they didn't notice she had one, with person tweeting: "I didn't even realise snoochie had a birthmark."
