CHANELLE Hayes showed off her incredible body transformation as she hit the beach in Spain.
The 33-year-old revealed the full extent of her eight stone weight loss wearing a tiny yellow bikini – in stark contrast to how she appeared in 2018 wearing a similar two piece.
Chanelle was prompted to undergo gastric sleeve surgery in 2020 after her weight reached over 17 stone – and proudly showed off the results as the strolled along the sand.
The mum of two has said she is far happier since shedding the pounds, but recently admitted she still has a way to go to love herself.
She wrote on Instagram: "I have wobbles and jiggles and bits I don’t love about myself, but looking at the physical data on paper from my healthcare team of how much my health has improved since the weight loss that caused these jiggles helps me to embrace the bits of the outer me I don’t like.
"Now I look at my body as something I am grateful for, that I have taken for granted, that I need to treat with respect."
At the height of her fame in 2009, the former Big Brother star weighed 8.5stone, barely eating and taking laxatives to try and achieve a WAG body – skinny with big boobs.
She previously spoke to The Sun about her battle with her body image over the years and how even at her lightest weight of 8 stone she wasn't happy or healthy.
She said of her life in the late noughties: "I was living in hotels and would not eat anything all day. If I got absolutely starving I would eat a tin of tomatoes with hot sauce, then take laxatives.
"I thought I was setting myself up for this amazing life but in truth I was always on my own and it was so lonely."
Unable to find a happy medium, Chanelle would binge eat Dominos pizzas and her weight spiralled out of control.
At her heaviest, she felt too ashamed to leave the house and was at risk of developing diabetes.
She lost weight at a rate of 10-13lbs a week after her surgery, and now at 9.5stones is the happiest she's ever been.
