DELICIOUSLY STELLA, aka Bella Younger, a Hackney-based comedian and author, was tired of seeing the constant stream of health experts and food gurus living the #cleanlife through social media, so she created the Deliciously Stella Instagram account, which has gained more than 128,000 followers in its short life. Deliciously Stella is a fresh approach and, quite frankly, a natural reaction to the endless images of perfectly toned abs that tend to grace our screens.
