She has been happy to stay in the background on The Only Way Is Essex and let the exhibitionists take centre stage. But after dropping a dress size in a month – and losing a massive 10 inches from her body – the TOWIE star is ready for her moment in the spotlight.

'Everyone was jealous of my lunch, particularly Arg!'

Frankie is 5'7 and has gone from 10st 7lbs and a size 12-14 to 10st 2lbs and a size 10 in four weeks.

“I’ve always been a yo-yo dieter, but exercising and eating healthily is part of my lifestyle now. I feel amazing.”

Frankie was 10st 7lbs when she made her debut on TOWIE.

“I really hated my wobbly belly. Being surrounded by girls like Billie Faiers and Jess Wright, who have amazing figures, didn’t help either. And being on TV made me more conscious of my body.”


In December, Frankie enlisted the help of Lomax Personal Training and Fitness to overhaul her diet and exercise routine.

“The nutritionist taught me to be organised with my meals, so I’d boil an egg the night before for my breakfast... I’d cook on my George Foreman grill, with lots of vegetables. I’d eat half for dinner, then take the rest to filming. Everyone was always jealous of my lunch, particularly Arg!”

Frankie also started going to the gym twice a week for an hour. “It was the most intense thing I’d ever done. My trick was to think about anything that had upset me the day before, then I’d channel that bad energy during my workout.”
