Chanelle Hayes reveals her body isn't 'perfect' after 8 stone weight loss but she's still happy with her new shape

CHANELLE Hayes has revealed her body isn't "perfect" after eight stone weight loss – but is still happy with her new shape.

The 33-year-old proudly showed off her tiny frame in some stunning new snaps.

The Big Brother star underwent a secret gastric sleeve operation in August 2020 after ballooning to 17 stone.

In March this year she revealed her new body and has loved sharing snapsof the results on Instagram ever since.

Chanelle, who shot to fame on the Channel 4 reality series in 2007, recently took some pics at home to show off her tiny frame.

In one the beauty has a huge grin on her face as she posed in front of a white wall in a black bra and knickers.

She looked stunning as ever with very minimal make-up and her hair styled into beach waves.

The star had no issues showing off her stretch marks and loose skin which have become noticeable since losing so much weight.

The telly favourite even made a love heart symbol out of her hands and placed it on top of the loose skin on her tummy.

In another Chanelle stripped down to just a nude pair of knickers and put her back to the camera as she opened up her fridge.

The mum-of-two also posed in front of her bed as she put on a pair of skinny jeans.

The snaps come just days after she confessed that a complete lifestyle overhaul was the reason for her weight loss, not just her gastric band surgery.

The surgery removed a large part of the stomach to limit food intake and she has managed to drop four dress sizes.

She shared a 'before and after' pic of herself to Instagram saying the difference in her size was 'inactive vs active'.

Chanelle revealed all the fun activities she does with her two sons and has helped her shed the pounds.

"One of the best things since my #gastricsleeve is being able to move more and spend more quality time with my boys," she started the post.

"In the left pic, I sat sweating due to my excess body weight watching my son play football. In the right, I had just beaten him at a race of the Monsal trail, so I was sweating for the right reasons!"

Chanelle added: "Last weekend I took the kids trampolining, next week we are going swimming. None of these activities were something I could have done before.

"Partly, because I felt so much shame I didn’t want to embarrass them but partly because I knew I would be in agony for days afterwards."

Chanelle revealed she was not in "any agony after this bike ride", but was "starving, but pain free".

"So I finished off with a nice Caesar salad and a side of “smug” from winning the race 🤣," she wrote.

"My issue now is that one of my boys is 11 and the other is 4… what kind of activities work for all of us as a whole?! Any suggestions would be really welcomed and appreciated. Thanks you guys xxx."

Just days before she defended getting a gastric band.

She told her 116k followers on Instagram: "I know some people see #bariatricsurgery as cheating… but it’s not an easy road, and one that was difficult for me to decide to walk down.

"I want to share my experience on here because #foodaddiction is real and, whether people choose bariatrics or not, the way this addiction is viewed by society as a whole is as though it’s “just an excuse to be greedy”. It’s not."

But the surgery hasn't been without its downsides as she showed off her "saggy and baggy skin".

Posting pictures of her relaxing in the sunshine in a blue bikini, she wrote: "After years of hating my body for being too big, it’s now small enough that my skin looks saggy and baggy.

"I have four boobs because my implants are in one place and my actual skin and breast tissue are in another.

"I have stretch marks on practically every area of my body, cellulite is my constant companion no matter how big or small I may be at any given time."
