Rebel Wilson aims to inspire others with new plus size fashion range

Fans of Rebel Wilson have even more cause to be excited this year - not only is the Aussie funny girl filming Pitch Perfect 3, she's also launching her own plus-size clothing range.

Wilson announced the move on her Instagram account earlier today, saying: "I'm very excited to announce that I'm starting my own plus size clothing line called REBEL WILSON x ANGELS."

She was a little vague on the details, promising "more info soon!"

However, fans can be reassured that the clothing range will be available in department stores "this summer" - although we're not yet sure if that's a southern or a northern hemisphere summer she means. 

The response to the Bridesmaids star's post has been overwhelmingly positive. It's also not the first time she's sashayed into the fashion world. In 2015, she partnered with plus size fashion label Torrid to launch a capsule collection.

Wilson expressed her frustration with plus-size fashion at the time, saying: "I've never really felt like there's a brand out there in the plus-size world that is creating cool stuff, that fits well and is good quality yet affordable."

Now it seems she's sliding into that gap in the market.
