The former X Factor star flaunts her flat tummy and awesome abs!

She refused to react to pressure to ‘snap back into shape’ after her third baby was born, but it seems Rebecca Ferguson has been giving her body a bit of an overhaul the last few weeks.

The star, 28, posted a work out picture on Instagram and showed off a very toned tummy and impressive abs – the results of three-week ‘detox’ – in a bright orange crop top and leggings.

Rebecca told fans: ‘Week 3 detox ha ok I say detox I ate pizza yesterday champagne and a roast haha but other than that I’ve been good everybody needs a cheat day! #detox #lifestyle #postbaby #positivity #gym #fitness #wellness #selflove #women #goals #confidence #happiness#bestyou.’

The previous week, she posted a similar bathroom selfie, writing: ‘Week 2 … #detox #fitness #wellness #postbaby #gym #positivity #health.’

Back in March, the mum-of-three spoke about receiving taunts about her size 12 body and questions asking when she’ll ‘drop the post-baby pounds.’ At the time she said the nasty comments left her more determined than ever to stand up for herself.

She said: ‘There’s this culture where we celebrate people snapping back into shape a week after the birth, but I don’t want to be one of those people – I just want to enjoy Arabella.’

Rebecca, who has never named the father of Arabella publicly, also has two other children called Lillie, 10, and Karl, nine, with her former boyfriend Karl Dures, 29.

Meanwhile, Rebecca recently spoke out about being conned out of more than £43,000 by a friend. Rachel Taylor was jailed for 16 months after admitting two counts of fraud. ‘I finally got justice, but I’m still recovering from it all.There was so much more to it, and only so much that gets said in court, and I think if people knew everything they would be quite surprised to hear how I got through it all,’ she said.

She added: ‘I opened myself up to people I thought really cared about me and, when I look back, I realise I was naive, trusting and young.I’m one of these people who tries to look for the good in people, but I’ve learnt that, actually, no, some people fundamentally just are not nice.’
