The winner of Miss England has been shunned by modelling agencies for being "too fat". The curvy Laura Coleman started her career as a skinny size eight model. However, opting for a healthier figure, is said to have ruined her catwalk and magazine career. But the 22-year-old blonde, who has dated cricket star Stuart Broad, says that she is comfortable with herself. "I'm a size 10 to 12," The Sun quoted her as saying. "I really think the curvy girl should be promoted more as a positive image in the media. But the modelling agencies seemed to have a problem with me when I wasn't skinny any more. It puts you in a different type of modelling. "But I think as long as people are comfortable with themselves that's all that matters. "And I'm just proving that I am comfortable with myself as opposed to feeling under pressure to be a size zero," she added. Meanwhile, Laura is set to go next month to Miss World final in South Africa.
