Despite her flawless physique, mum-of-two Amanda doesn’t follow a gruelling fitness routine – nor does she diet. "You have to enjoy life," she previously told MailOnline. "I eat everything. Drink everything. I had a friend once who didn’t make it to her 50s and her biggest regret was she spent her life on a diet. I don't diet."

She further added: "I like to keep active. But I can't stand gyms. I like to run for an hour a week, as I feel great afterwards. It's also time to myself, which is worth its weight in gold."

Amanda is also an advocate for yoga. "I'm so grateful to my body after what it has been through," she explained. "I got into yoga because after Hollie was born I'd been on a ventilator and I had a lot of lung problems.

"Kundalini yoga is all about breath work, so I took it on to build my strength. A lot of people advised me to do it for calmness, too. I don't really sit still, I'm always on the go."

"There's one exercise called the Breath Fire which is great for abs," Amanda added. "But it's also a good pick-me-up when you're tired – honestly, it's better than a cup of coffee! My body got strong and any excess fat disappeared. It's definitely made my tummy flatter."
