Did Fran gain weight?

After people commented about her weight online, she responded:

I have put on weight during lockdown and I am doing something about it. But reading that abuse was awful. I am thick-skinned so I can take it but if it was another young girl being trolled this way, God knows what she would do.

Before anyone says I’ve edited it or that’s not me or I’ve had lipo suction. I haven’t. I’ve done this journey for younger girls to follow my tips and do it the right way.

In August, Fran shared a video responding to those who commented on her weight gain.
