Speaking about her decision to overhaul her lifestyle, she said: ‘My WW journey is focused on getting healthier for myself. I feel rubbish when I don’t eat properly or exercise and WW helps me with what I eat and do.

‘I know I’ll also lose weight by following the WW programme, but that’s not the be-all and end-all for me.

‘I want my journey to empower others to think about making changes to their lifestyle to become the best version of themselves.
