Talking to Closer exclusively, Frankie, 26, reveals how she is finally in the best shape of her life, she says: “I’ve gone from a size 14 to a 10 and I have loads more energy, my skin is glowing and I can see a real difference in my body.”

Frankie now weighs 10.5st, and is on a special diet that even allows her to tuck into creamy carbonara pasta. She has also stepped up her exercise regime.

She adds: “My stomach is a lot flatter and I actually look forward to going to the gym and toning up more. I’ve been doing 20-minute power walks to keep my weight stable.”

With a new body Frankie is now hoping her boyfriend John Lyons, 28 – who she’s been dating for two years – will pop the question soon.

Relishing her new-found confidence, Frankie tells Closer: “John has been saying how fantastic I look. It would be the icing on the cake to show off my new body as a bride!”
