Former Strictly star posts unflattering photo

Whilst many celebs wouldn’t fancy being papped after a gruelling workout, Fern Britton doesn’t seem to mind.

The TV presenter took to Twitter to share before and after shots of herself during an intense spinning class.

The before snap shows Fern, 55, smiling whilst sitting on an exercise bike.

But in the after shot she looks slightly more dishevelled – red-faced and wearing no make-up, the former Strictly Come Dancing star definitely worked up a sweat.

Fern’s followers seemed impressed with her honest snaps.

and that’s what we call even MORE real!! #evenmoregorgeous,‘ publicist Elizabeth Dawson Tweeted.

The former This Morning presenter, who is marred to chef Phil Vickery, hit the headlines for having a secret gastric band operation in 2006.

She then lost even more weight last year whilst taking part in Strictly.
