Chantelle Houghton has revealed she’s feeling more confident than ever after shedding two stone in weight over the past four months.
The 38-year old, who now works for The Body Shop, confessed that she put on three stone during lockdown in 2020.
With the help of personal training sessions and a new diet plan, Chantelle is now proudly showing off her incredible figure and is now a size 10.
The mum of one spoke to OK! Magazine and admitted: “I felt really down about it, but my confidence now is great.
“Not only have I lost nearly two stone, I feel healthier, too. My skin looks healthier and my friends tell me I’m glowing. I put that down to eating well three times a day.”
Many fans have shared their reaction to her weight loss and left heart-warming comments on her post.
One comment said: “Look how happy your face is in both – love this.”
A second one said: “Well done to you Chantelle,” whilst a third said: “Well done chick!! Looking great x.”
Another fan posted: “Well done babes you smashed it.. you look amazing.”
“Losing weight has made me feel a lot more confident about getting back to dating,” Chantelle added.
In September 2021, the star revealed that she had split from her fiancé Michael Strutt in January 2021.
Chantelle previously found love with Ordinary Boys singer Preston during her time on Celebrity Big Brother, with the two going on to marry in 2006.
Ten months later, on 27 June 2007, they announced in a joint statement that they were getting a divorce.
“After much soul-searching and tearful discussions we have sadly decided to end our marriage,” they said in the statement. “We hope we can always remain friends and still love each other but we both think we put so much pressure on one another to make our marriage work that it has ended up destroying our relationship.
She spoke about how she’d love to get married again one day: “It might sound cheesy, but I’d rather be alone for the next five years and then meet someone I can be happy with for the rest of my life, rather than being with someone who’s not right and being miserable.”
The star gave birth to her first child in June 2012 during her relationship with Alex Reid, but the pair separated later that year.
Chantelle has been using the MuscleFood Goal Getters Super Slimmer meal plan during her weight-loss programme.
