Talking to her Snapchat followers back in February Danielle got candid about her body hang ups, the star revealed: ‘There was pictures of me around the pool and obviously we didn’t know there was paps, and some people think ‘well you’re not even big’ but for me I felt the worst.’

She added: ‘I remember sitting in my room just crying, thinking I’m ugly, I’m fat.’

Danielle previously revealed that she had lost a stone in 12 weeks after embracing a healthy and active lifestyle.

And it looks like Danielle is very happy after finding romance with hunky footballer Daniel Spiller.
