A holidaymaker has been mortified after another hotel guest insisted she must be pregnant after her stomach was bloated from the all-inclusive buffet.
Lauren Saddington, a TikTokker and podcaster from Burnley, Lancashire, is on holiday in Izdeniz, Turkey.
In a video the 26-year-old shared with her followers, she revealed that while she didn’t enjoy the breakfast options, the lunch and dinner dishes were delicious.
As a result, at those two meal times, Lauren said she sampled the tasty food and tasted three plates.
This, she says in her video, left her feeling bloated, as is often the case when she eats at the buffet.

While to be expected on vacation, one interaction Lauren had with another vacationer was less mundane.
According to podcast host Lauren, one morning during breakfast she was approached by another woman staying at the resort.
Initially, the influencer thought the guest was going to say she recognized her from her TikTok channel.
But instead, Lauren was horrified by what the guest had to say.
Describing the interaction in her video, Lauren says: “She says ‘your belly hasn’t gotten bigger, it’s really big’.
“I stood there saying ‘Oh, I don’t know how to handle this’.
“And then she says ‘well I just thought you were really pretty the first week I saw you and now your belly is huge’.
And that was not the end of the conversation, the woman continued to talk.
The glamorous 26-year-old seemed shocked by the conversation and was surprised someone would approach a stranger with such questions.

According to Lauren, the woman then said, ‘You must be pregnant?’
Lauren wasn’t sure what to make of the situation.
She says she told the woman she was just enjoying her food at the all-inclusive resort.
And then, after telling the other holidaymaker she wasn’t pregnant, Lauren claimed she gasped.
The 26-year-old continues in her video, “There was sheer horror on my face because I didn’t know what she wanted to do here.”
Lauren said she hoped the woman felt mortified by the conversation because she herself would feel mortified if she made such assumptions about a stranger.
Horrible experience: In her own words, Lauren had a “horrible” time while being questioned by the hotel guest about her change in appearance while on vacation.

Finally, the other guest revealed that she felt “mortified” for making – and vocalizing – her assumption that Lauren was pregnant.
The TikTokker said, “You know what, I hope you’re mortified because I would never even ask someone if they were pregnant if I saw a huge bump on their belly.”
After sharing the experience on social media, Lauren’s fans were shocked to hear about the conversation, with some expressing their anger.
Lauren shared her experience on social media and her fans became furious.
One fan said: “Wow this is shocking.
“I’m so sorry you had to deal with this, it’s just awful, you look beautiful.”
Lauren’s fans took to the comments section of her video to share their own thoughts, with some expressing anger at the stranger’s comments.
Jacqueline Cooper said: “Why would she even say that?”
“That’s so wrong.”
“What’s wrong with people, oh my god,” said furious fan Emily.
Nicole Stevens said: “I think she must have been incredibly insecure and saw how to put another woman down.”
‘I’m so sorry, you look beautiful with or without bloating.’
