Presenter and model Jameela Jamil has battled her own demons when it comes to body image and now she's calling on more to be done to help young people. The 28-year-old Radio 1 DJ from North London joined a roundtable discussion held by Dove on whether body confidence education should be on the national curriculum. She said: 'Body image needs to be a whole school approach so you create a high self-esteem environment.' She added that teenagers should be aware that, 'you cannot measure your self-worth with a weighing scale.'
