Confident: Chanelle Hayes embraced her ‘saggy, stretched wobbly bits’ as she showed off the results of her staggering 8.5stone weight loss on Instagram on Wednesday

The television personality told her followers how she felt it was important for them to see a photo of her figure which isn’t ‘edited and Photoshopped perfection’.  

In a length caption, Chanelle wrote: ‘Not posted for a while as I’ve not been feeling too great. Anyway….Today has been a ‘self-care’ type of day. 

‘I’ve been slowly coming to realise during my nursing degree that if I can’t take care of myself I won’t be much use to anybody else.

Encouraging: The television personality told her followers how she felt it was important for them to see a photo of her figure which isn’t ‘edited and Photoshopped perfection’

‘So in the spirit of a bit of self-care, I thought I would show you saggy, stretched, wobbly bits and hopefully it might pop up on your feed in amongst all the edited and photoshopped perfection and give you a little bit of relief from all that nonsense. 

‘This evening I will be relaxing, with my hot water bottle, my electric blanket and a decaf cup of tea. Yes, I am only 34, but I party like I’m in my 90s.’ 

Before undergoing her surgery, the star revealed she took laxatives for 10 years and would only eat a tin of tomatoes in a bid to look ‘skinny like Victoria Beckham‘ during her battle with yo-yo dieting.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the mother-of-two has shared how gastric sleeve surgery helped her curb her compulsive eating habits and develop a healthy relationship with food.  

Reflecting on how fame exasperated her desire to be ‘skinny’, Chanelle recalled: ‘My life post Big Brother, my eating habits got worse, everyone I hung out with in London was even smaller than me, so I felt so big…

Real: ‘I thought I would show you you saggy, stretched, wobbly bits and hopefully it might pop up on your feed in amongst all the edited and photoshopped perfection,’ Chanelle wrote

‘They all took drugs, which I guess explains why they were thin, but that was not something I was into. I was living in hotels and would not eat anything all day, if I got absolutely starving I would eat a tin of tomatoes with hot sauce, then take laxatives… 

‘I thought I was setting myself up for this amazing life but in truth I was always on my own and it was so lonely.’ 

At 8.5 stone, Chanelle moved up north to Wakefield to live near family but found she had begun to binge on food when she fell pregnant with son Blakely, now 11. 

The television personality found herself in a vicious cycle of overindulging on takeaways, feeling guilty and then trying to compensate for her actions by taking laxatives and overexercising. 

By 2013, Chanelle’s weighed 13.5 stone and was offered a chance to lose weight and make money by signing a contract with a slimming pill company, and lost 5st in four months.

Yet three years later, a failed relationship and now a single mum to two boys, Chanelle found her food addiction ‘totally out of control’ and weighing 14.5stone. 

‘People just thought I was greedy but I was beyond the point of control and my addiction was really taking hold. I decided to have gastric sleeve surgery in 2020 after going up to 17st 4lb,’ Chanelle said. 

Before undergoing the procedure, the reality stars said ‘lived like a hermit for a year’ as she felt ‘so ashamed’ of her weight. 

But the gastric sleeve surgery has given the BB star a new lease of life. Now weighing 9.5 stone Chanelle says she is the ‘happiest I’ve ever been both physically and mentally’.
