The TOWIE star, 37, is currently training for her appearance on the 2019 season of Dancing On Ice, and has already dropped a dress size from the vigorous training.

Speaking to New! magazine at the ITV Palooza event she said: ‘This dress I’m wearing is a size 24 but it’s too big. I should be wearing a 22. So there’s no doubt that between now and January I’m going to.’

She is planning to marry James ‘Arg’ Argent in a couple of years but after admitting the pair piled on the pounds over the summer, she is keen to start eating well and ‘working hard’ with her skates on ready for James to pop the question.
She said: ‘I’m mainly doing the show for the amazing outfits and as a way of losing weight. If I commit myself to training and eating well I think I could really get in shape by doing the show.
‘I want to get married in the next few years and I don’t want to be fat for my wedding day. We’ve both put on a lot of weight over the summer so now it’s time to work hard and get in shape.’
