‘I know you’ve been on here talking about your own battle with weight loss and you tried every diet in the book and none of those worked for you and you went for more drastic measures which, for you, worked out brilliantly.’

Vanessa replied: ‘It’s not so much as the diets don’t work, they do work but the problem is the bit where you’ve lost all the weight and everyone says, ‘Oh, you look great!’  

‘You feel great, people start to treat you in a different way, which is awful because you’re the same inside as out.

She added: ‘However you feel great, you celebrate but then you go back to normal life which, for most people with people with a weight problem, involves having a bit of chocolate!

Holly has repeatedly refused to discuss her own weight loss and diet secrets over the years, saying in a 2017 interview with Prima magazine that she feared influencing those with eating disorders.

She said: ‘I actually avoid talking about my diet and exercise regime because I have interviewed so many people affected by eating disorders and I know that some people in chat rooms can really fixate on other people’s diets.

‘I just can’t contribute to that.’

‘As long as I’m healthy, that’s good enough for me. I’m quite active and I try not to let the way I look be the main focus because it’s not the most important thing

The discussion comes after  Adele showed off her incredible seven stone weight loss in a tight black mini as she shared a rare Instagram post on Tuesday.

The Hello singer was celebrating her 32nd birthday and stood beaming in her backyard behind a giant floral wreath.

‘Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time,’ captioned the superstar. 

‘I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels ♥️ 2020 okay bye thanks x’.

Her birthday picture marked Adele’s first Instagram upload since she stunned the world with her new svelte frame in photos from her Christmas party last year.

Adele, who has been sticking to a 1000-a-day calorie diet and also doing Pilates, had slipped into a shimmering gown and posed up a storm beside men dressed as the Grinch and Santa Claus.  

The singer has become increasingly health-conscious over recent months and a source close to the star praised her disciplined approach to her own wellbeing.

An insider told E! News: ‘She goes to different gyms. She goes early in the morning and meets with her trainer.

‘She gets her workout in first thing. She works out for about an hour and leaves drenched in sweat and looking like she worked very hard.’

Adele reportedly attends a couple of private fitness classes every week.

The source added: ‘She’s also staying active going on walks and getting in a lot of steps. She is in a groove.’   

In January she went on holiday to Anguilla with Harry Styles and James Corden, and met a 19-year-old fan called Lexi Larson who dished to People about their weight loss conversation. 

‘She said she lost something like 100 pounds, and that it’s such a crazy positive experience. She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident,’ Lexi shared with the magazine.
