Chantelle Houghton shares throwback bikini snap as vows to lose weight

‘I can’t wait to look like this again’: Chantelle Houghton shares wistful throwback bikini snap as she signs up to the gym after gaining 3st

Earlier this year she revealed she had repeatedly been forced to deny she’s pregnant after putting on three stone during lockdown.

And Chantelle Houghton has vowed to shed the pounds again as she shared a throwback bikini snap on Instagram on Thursday.

The former Big Brother star, 36, looked fabulous as she modelled a navy two-piece in the shower, as she revealed: ‘I can’t wait to look like this again’.

In the throwback image, Chantelle sported a slender physique as she rocked a skimpy navy bikini while water cascaded down her.

Captioning the snap, the star penned: ‘I signed up to the gym today, I start on Monday, I can’t wait to look like this again. 

‘(Can you believe I actually thought I was fat and unattractive in this pic) I’m excited to train with my love @strutt.michael.’

It comes just weeks after the mother-of-one revealed on Instagram that she had gained three stone in weight during lockdown and was ‘done’ with people thinking she was pregnant.  

Alongside another throwback bikini image, she said: ‘5 year throwback!! I have 3 stone ‘lockdown weight’ to lose! I’m kinda done with all the ‘oh my god you’re pregnant’ comments! 

‘I have slim limbs and all of my weight goes to my tummy so I understand the comments but I’m going to do this! Who’s with me? 

‘I hate working out alone as it gives me zero motivation and it’s so easy to give up and go home or sit on the sofa or not do it at all!! Who’s up for a live on instagram once per week? Picked at random, but you must keep me going!?!?!!!’

Her words echoed an interview she had done in July where she stated ‘my tummy has always been my problem area’ as she discussed her weight gain.

The TV personality admitted in an interview with Closer that she had to clarify to the receptionist at her local hair salon that she’d ‘put on a lot of weight’ when they accidentally assumed the star was pregnant.

Explaining what transpired, she said: ‘Last week I went to the hairdressers and the receptionist looked at me and said, ‘Oh Chantelle, congratulations!’ I giggled and said, ‘Don’t be embarrassed, but I’ve just put on a lot of weight!’

‘My tummy has always been my problem area; people have been coming up to me for years and asking, ‘When is it due?’ I’ve got used to it now.’ 

Chantelle, who previously admitted she’d gained two stone in lockdown, went on to claim that her romance with fiancé Michael Strutt has made her realise she isn’t concerned about her weight as she’s ‘happy’.

‘When you’re in a happy relationship too, you don’t worry about what you’re eating and you do gain weight,’ she explained.

The pair became engaged in April after a three-month whirlwind romance but they have been friends for nine years.

It comes after Chantelle shared a picture of herself on a fishing trip earlier in July as she excitedly posed with her catch of the day. 

However, while she was having a lovely time, she was clearly feeling self-conscious about her looks during lockdown, even though she still looks lovely.

‘PS I have a hairdressers appointment next week, beyond excited!! #haircolor #grey #upyourgame.’

Chantelle found fame on Celebrity Big Brother 4 in 2006, where she was tasked with trying to the convince her fellow housemates she was a genuine star, by claiming she was a member of the pop group Kandy Floss.

She went onto win that series of CBB and sparked a romance with Ordinary Boys singer Preston. They married seven months after leaving the house, before splitting in June 2007.
