The 28-year-old star's fitness DVD has also outsold former Big Brother host Davina McCall's fitness DVD.

However the 5”10 reality star admits that she prefers being a size 10-12.

Referring to TOWIE star Gemma Collins’ recent comments accusing Josie of having lost too much weight and ‘having lost her lovely face', Josie said:

‘I love Gemma - she's so funny.

'I don't think she meant to call me ugly but I know what she means.

'My mum said the same thing.

'When I went down to a size 8, my mum said: ‘You look like a crackhead - put some weight on!'

'It's hard to find that happy balance but I have put some more weight back on - 7lb.

'You have to compromise with your face and your body sometimes.

'There's a balance.'
