Victoria Pendleton reports 'Strictly' weight loss

Tuesday October 23, 2012

Star cyclist Victoria Pendleton has had to get rid of all of her old clothes because of her Strictly Come Dancing weight loss.

Just three months after the Olympian said goodbye to cycling, the star said she now feels more "girly" after years of bulking up.

The sportswoman has been dancing with Brendan Cole for the series, and it has been her first main task since saying goodbye to her bike wheels.

Victoria said to the Radio Times: "I have lost about five kilos, mostly in muscle mass from my bum and thighs. I look down at my legs and they don't really feel like mine any more.

"And I'm having trouble with my clothes - everything is looking a bit looser, nothing fits well and my jeans, which used to be tight on my bum and thighs, are practically falling off me."

The star said it was "sad" to see her body disappear after dominating the velodrome for the past years.
