Speaking about the lengths she went to in order to feel her best on-screen, the Newquay native told the girls during Love Island Unseen Bits that she hadn't "had a drink since New Years Eve." It's no secret that many dieticians and nutritionists warn against overindulging in alcohol, not just because it's proven to be bad for both physical and mental health but because it's regarded as having "empty calories". This means the calorie count is high in the likes of wine, beer and cocktails but don't offer any nutritional value. It's also known that the more you drink, the hungrier you can get meaning you'll often eat more.

Not one to shy away from the fact that in order to achieve her figure, she had to alter her lifestyle in other ways too. She recently revealed she underwent a dramatic weight loss over the last couple of years. Taking to Instagram she uploaded a three-stage photograph of herself and wrote: "I've been training with @kapowhealthyliving over a year now. The first picture is when I first started, and the last one is where I am now. In just over a year I have lost around about 2 stone, and I have now reached the perfect weight for me...for #mondaymotivation this is achievable through healthy eating and regular exercise!"
