Alexandra's sensational physique comes from years of hard work, and she revealed that she started taking more care of her body and diet after she became concerned about developing diabetes.

Speaking about her diet to Women's Health, she explained: "I started eating six small meals-a-day: Porridge for breakfast, soup for lunch, a dinner of chicken or fish with salad, fruit and nut snacks in between."

And speaking about her fitness regiment, she revealed: "I now work out five or six times a week and my training schedule never changes, not even when I'm on holiday. I begin with a 10-minute run to warm up, then an hour of circuit training.

"Two years later, I'm three dress sizes smaller and 2st lighter, and I've built up muscle. It's been a slow process but the rewards are for the long term."
