Eilish was tagged in the ‘blast from the past’

The 31-year-old was tagged in the Instagram story post by her friend Laura Cameron.

It showed a very young Eilish preparing to run a race alongside her and a third girl.

She posted it the caption: “Mum sending me these absolute blasts from the past.

“Those wee chicken legs” with a laughing face emoji.

Years on, Eilish looks much different and sports light blonde locks.

Recently we told how Eilish said she receives abuse from trolls about her appearance every single day.

She told how she is bombarded with body shaming comments on social media.

She revealed she had been branded ‘too skinny’, ‘anorexic’ and a ‘bad role model for young girls’.

Eilish has previously called out trolls but said the constant abuse shows no signs of stopping.

She has even taken to blocking out certain words from the comments section of her Instagram page in an attempt to limit nasty comments.

Eilish said the abuse no longer affects her but she is worried about the impression it gives to young people who follow her.
