The 32-year-old reality TV star has traded her Sugar Hut nights for intense gym sessions and now works as a weight loss trainer.

Holly Hagan claims she was always known as “fat” on Geordie Shore when she came on the show in 2011.

She has tried many extreme diets over the years, but in 2020 she reported she had lost 16 pounds in just two weeks, and she has managed to maintain that tally ever since.

Holly described her lifestyle at the start of the exercise and weight loss program as “poor”, admitting she ate takeout food three times a week and didn’t do any exercise.

She said her mental health is also suffering and she can’t sleep, but now she feels stronger than ever.

She said: “I can’t believe that I can now do full push-ups, lift heavy weights and feel confident in any gym. What shocked me the most was that I was doing all this while eating CARBOHYDRATES! So many carbs!! Daily pancakes and coconuts, potatoes, rice, EVERYTHING!

“All my life I have been dieting, starving, overeating, making myself sick when it was not necessary. I FINALLY feel like I’m in control.”

TOWIE star Bobby Norris went from skin to bone to meat pie in just 11 weeks with the help of Geordie Shore star Scotty T.

In 2020, after sharing a photo of his recently torn body, Bobby wrote: “I fueled my body with nutritious healthy food and did 15 minutes of exercise every day for the first six weeks, and then five weeks ago Scotty stepped in to help me achieve a body and a mind I could only dream of before.

“I have never felt more balanced, energized and happy in my own skin.”

Praising Scotty for his support, he added: “A healthy lifestyle is not just about how you look, it’s about being the best version of yourself and respecting yourself and your body. My mental health has never been better.”

This Morning host Josie Gibson was a size 18 when she first rose to fame on Big Brother in 2010.

She is known to have lost six stone in 2013 through a “combination of healthy eating and exercise” but recovered “about four and a half stone” after she became pregnant with her now three-year-old son, Reggie.

In 2021, Josie was eating healthy, drinking more water, and started exercising for 30-45 minutes a day. She managed to fit back into her size 14 jeans and now she’s shed a whopping seven stone.

Demonstrating her weight loss, she said, “I can’t tell you how happy I am. You know, all these lockdowns, the pandemic have been very stressful.

“The way I deal with stress is by eating. I’ve always done this and went for size 18. You just get to the point where you look in the mirror and you don’t even know who you’re looking at.”

Before moving to Love Island Villa in 2020, Shauna Phillips lost four stone and was a size eight.

But after the show, during self-isolation, she gained two stone and grew to a size 14.

Last year, she decided to pull herself together and went on a strict diet.

She said: “In lockdown, I definitely indulged a lot more than before when it came to food. As a result, I gained quite a lot of weight. I got two stone.”

She continued, “Lately, I’ve been trying to get back into the rhythm of life (mainly life!), and that includes exercising and eating better, as well as trying to adapt my work life to my new healthy lifestyle!

“It’s safe to say that it was NOT an instant success. But this is a marathon, not a sprint!”

Last week, she shared a photo of herself in leggings as she pulled up her top to reveal a flat stomach.

Shauna wrote: “Finally! Before Love Island it was size 8, in January it was size 14. These leggings are a size 12 and are a bit big.”

In addition to diet and exercise, Shonna underwent surgery last year to remove two liters of fat from her thighs to treat a condition called lipedema, an abnormal accumulation of fat in her legs and buttocks.

Alexandra Kane was described as a “curvy” Love Island contestant when she appeared in the show’s fourth series.

But in 2020, she lost two stones and drastically changed her body – after using exercises to combat anxiety.

“I don’t recognize myself,” she told Kristen Bell Tattoos. “I look in the mirror and ask: “Who is this girl?”. But I am proud of myself and every single day I thank myself for the fact that it is not easy to get rid of habits, it is very difficult.

“The way you feel is contagious.”

Another Geordie Shore star who has changed a lot since she was on the MTV show is Chloe Ferry.

She lost a lot of weight, but last year admitted that she gained two stone during a long “business trip” to Dubai.

When she returned, she stated that she felt “much better” after shedding “a few pounds” through diet and exercise.

She said, “I’ve been on a diet for about two and a half weeks…my bloating is starting to go down and I’ve lost a few pounds.”

The 26-year-old reality star has also spent more than £50,000 on a makeover of her image, getting everything from breast implants to a buttock lift, Botox, a nose job, cheek and lip fillers and a brow lift.

By far the most costly of her physical upgrades are her pearl white veneers, which cost her £28,000.

Love Island star Anton Danilyuk has changed dramatically after becoming famous on the ITV2 dating show.

Although he has always been fit, he seems to have been working hard at the gym lately and looks even more ripped.

However, fans have also commented that he looks almost unrecognizable.

One wrote: “You had a lot of fillers. Your face looks so swollen. You don’t look good, mate. [sic].”

Another asked, “Why do your eyes look swollen lately. They didn’t look like they used to.”

However, Anton assures that he did not undergo any fillers or operations.

He told Fubar Radio: “I didn’t really get any work done. Honestly, I’ll say that if it was, I don’t care.

“If I want to have my face done, this is my face, this is my body.”

When Faye Winter filmed the latest episode of Love Island, she had a lot of lip filler and was very open about it.

After the show, the fillers dissolved and she looks much more natural.

“There is no secret about my lips. I dissolved the lips and then refilled them with a new technique that allowed my lips to look bigger with less filler,” Faye explained.

“My botox went wrong and both of my eyebrows went down.

“However, I fixed it. My eyebrows are now where they should be and I have no wrinkles on my forehead. And my lips are absolutely perfect.”

The former rental agent said she had no plans to purchase more fillers in the future.

She said: “I am happy with the way I look. I knew from a young age that I had small lips, so I had to get a filler to make them bigger, and I got Botox for wrinkles.”
