Josie Gibson had a curvy figure when she entered the Big Brother house on 9 June 2010.

She admited that she’s been battling with her size for years – succumbing to fad diets and weight loss pills – and was 19st at the age of 18.

‘People would text me saying: “Go and hang yourself, you whale” – it was horrific,’ Josie said.

Since then Josie has been under a dramatic transformation which has seen her slim down from a size 20 to a size 8 after seeing unflattering pictures of herself on the beach. When she saw those pictures she was so shocked she called herself a ‘beast’.

Josie, 31, then released a new book on how to love food, get slim and – most importantly – stay slim.

The Big Brother winner from Bristol shed an incredible six stone over a year. A combination of a strict diet and exercise regime helped her slim down from 16st 7lb and a size 18 to 10st 2lb.
