Strictly Come Dancing winner is very content
Kara – who started dating hot dancer Artem, 31, after they met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2010 – admits to letting her fitness regime slip a bit because she’s so content.
‘Sure, [when you’re in a relationship and] when you’re happy you can let yourself go,’ says Kara, 30.
‘But I’ve found a happy medium. Now, fitness for me is more of a lifestyle.’
Feeling at ease in her relationship appears to have had a positive effect on Kara’s body image too.
‘For the first time I really am [happy with my body],’ the former EastEnders actress says.
‘You have to deal with all the things you don’t like about yourself and think: “You’ve got what you’ve got, shut up and deal with it and move on.”‘
