“‘Before I lost weight I was nearly size 20 and my only exercise was partying,’ admits 5ft 10in Josie.
‘I’ve tried all the diets – I did the Cambridge Diet and lasted from the meeting until I got home!
‘They gave me all the bits and pieces but I ate a week’s worth of food on the spot, then stopped for a kebab.’

“Fitness trainer Nicki Waterman told new! she believes Josie has gained 3 and a half stone since March, when she split from John James. ‘I would estimate her weight to be 17st,’ said Nicki, ‘For her to gain such a huge amount of weight in such a short space of time she would have to have been binge eating.”

“What do you weigh now?’ ‘ They said I was 17st in the paper – bloody cheek! It said I binge on bacon. I’m about 14 and a half stone, but I don’t weight myself much, so I’m not sure. I may lose some weight, but it’s not a priority for me.’
‘What size are you?’ ‘I’m a size 16, sometimes an 18, but I’m OK with it. I’m only an 18 with designer stuff – their sizing is mental. But I’ve got a plus-size modelling contract so I can’t lose weight. How lucky am I?’
‘My favourite body part is my boobs. I’m a D cup.”
