Speaking about her new size, the mother-of-one told Closer magazine: 'I look better for it.

'It's a more realistic weight to maintain. In a way, it's harder to keep it off than lose it.'

'If I want carbs I have a quinoa or sweet potato, which are healthier. For a snack I'll have a skinny latte with a cinnamon on top.'

She told the magazine she exercised for 20 minutes a day while on holiday, going to the gym, doing press-ups and power walking.

'I'm in the same bikini as last year, which is a great feeling.

'It's a constant struggle and, after working so hard to lose the weight originally, I don't want to go back.'
