Is that you, Clare? Clare Verrall looked incredible as she flaunted her slimmer frame, after losing 50kg in just 12 months, during a coffee date in Melbourne on Saturday

The 34-year-old first debuted her body transformation in February, earlier this year, and highlighted her new look with her figure-hugging outfit.  

Clare teamed her skin-tight jeans with a black cami top and bright form-fitting knitwear that emphasised her svelte waist. 

She paired her ensemble with a patterned headband that pushed her locks back from her face and favoured glamorous make-up.

Seeming in good spirits, the reality TV star flashed a smile as she walked her pug alongside her pal, before stopping for a coffee. 

Clare has previously said that stress from appearing on Married At First Sight led to her gaining 45kg. 

She was a contestant on MAFS in 2016 and told New Idea she would order three pizzas a day at her heaviest weight of 119kg.

‘I had to let [the experience] go,’ she told the magazine last year. 

‘I was still holding on to resentment that Jono [Pitman, her ‘husband’ on MAFS] and I were both set up to fail and I finally realised it was just a waste of time.’

Deciding to make a change, Clare ditched fast food for a healthy diet and began to exercise regularly.

Her new lifestyle led to her losing the pounds and she revealed in February she now weighs a healthy 70kg. 

She recently appeared in Channel Seven’s exposé of MAFS on Sunday night and addressed her mental health battle during filming three years ago.   

She said: ‘I was so broken and scared, I wouldn’t go outside… I stayed in bed. I just didn’t get up and… I just…I was having panic attacks.’

Clare added that social media had a huge impact on her mental state when the show aired and she’d often receive death threats online. 

She admitted that she had tried to take her own life, after reaching out to Channel Nine producers for psychological help. 

Wanting to raise awareness over the ‘dangers’ of reality TV, she said: ‘As these shows become more and more supersized, the absolute lack of duty of care for the cast all in the name of ratings is horrific.’

A Channel Nine spokesperson said psychological services were available to contestants on the show, adding: ‘We take our duty of care seriously.’ 

Clare, meanwhile, has said she now feels ‘mentally stronger’ after working on herself away from the camera.
