Lisa Riley worked hard for 18 months, exercising and eating well to shed 11 stone.

But despite all her hard work and the incredible weight loss that came with it, the star was still unhappy with her body.

While her frame was far slimmer, Lisa was left with over a stone of loose skin, which left her confidence shattered.

Speaking to The Mirror, she explained, “When I made the ­decision to lose weight, I never for one second imagined that I would end up looking like that. It never occurred to me that the loose skin would be so bad.

“I thought why on earth have I lost all this weight? I looked worse than I did when I was obese. And it was the pain as well. The skin was flapping about and dragging.

“I felt like I had done so well losing the weight but I had ended up with the booby prize. I was revolted by my own image, it was rancid.

"I was used to seeing the obese Lisa reflection, but this saggy mess was new, it was painful and it was quashing the brilliance of what I had done.”

So the actress decided to go under the knife and document her painful experience for a TV show, Lisa Riley’s Baggy Body Club.

Undertaking four operations, Lisa had surgery to remove the skin from her arms, thighs and tummy, and also had a boob lift.

And while she was left with scarring, the TV presenter admits it has all been worth it.

“This documentary is the thing I am most proud of in my life. I wanted people to see that surgery isn't the easy route, it is really hard. But the results I have got are amazing,” she said.

Lisa Riley’s Baggy Body Club is on ITV1 on Tuesday 5 September at 9pm.
