"All girls have insecurities, whether it's worrying about love handles or a wobbly bum," she told Women's Fitness. "I'm just like everyone else and now that I'm 30 it's all starting to drop."

The mother-of-two is often spotted hitting the gym and has often shared her love of all things fitness – and she explained that it was a key factor in helping her maintain a positive body image.

The star spoke out about her insecurities

"I work out because it makes me feel strong, healthy and energised," she said. "Exercise also gives me a positive frame of mind."

When it comes to celebrating her physique, Abbey admitted there is one feature she particularly likes about herself. "I like my tummy," she confessed. "I'm lucky as I haven't got any stretchmarks after having two kids and I do targeted moves like sit-ups to keep it in shape."

Abbey and husband Peter Crouch have two daughters

It's not the first time that the Britain's Next Top Model star has opened up about her fitness routine. Abbey, who has two daughters with footballer husband Peter Crouch, spoke to HELLO! in February about her love of all things fitness, just a few weeks after she was pictured looking svelte during a break to Dubai.

"I did go back to normal quite quickly," she said, talking about her post-pregnancy body after having welcomed her second daughter in June last year. "But it definitely took longer with the second one."

However, the British beauty revealed that there is no secret to her body transformation. "My family's all quite thin, so we're quite blessed genetically that way, but you shouldn't just exercise to feel skinny or thin," she explained. "It puts you in a healthy mind-set. It clears your mind and makes you feel strong; it's not all about losing weight for me."
