CHANELLE Hayes stripped to a bikini as she revealed her incredible nine stone weight loss.
Trim Chanelle, 34, strutted along the sand in Spain wearing a striped orange and white two-piece.
The amazing results of her gastric sleeve operation were on full display as she confidently showcased her figure in the sunshine.
The ex Big Brother star tied her hair up in a bun and wore a smart watch to track her exercise, having dropped from a size 18 to a size 10 in recent years.
Chanelle was prompted to undergo gastric sleeve surgery in 2020 after her weight reached over 17 stone – and proudly showed off the results as the strolled along the sand.
The mum of two has said she is far happier since shedding the pounds, but recently admitted she still has a way to go to love herself.LITTLE GOOD MAN
She wrote on Instagram: "I have wobbles and jiggles and bits I don’t love about myself, but looking at the physical data on paper from my healthcare team of how much my health has improved since the weight loss that caused these jiggles helps me to embrace the bits of the outer me I don’t like.
"Now I look at my body as something I am grateful for, that I have taken for granted, that I need to treat with respect."
At the height of her fame in 2009, the former Big Brother starweighed 8.5stone, barely eating and taking laxatives to try and achieve a WAG body - skinny with big boobs.
Chanelle, mum to Blakely, 11, who is the son of former footballer Matthew Bates, and Frankie, three, from her relationship with PE teacher Ryan Oates, is studying for an adult nursing degree to become an advanced nurse practitioner.
She lasted 62 days on Big Brother 8 in 2007 and hasn't been far from the public eye since, but says her days posing for sexy snaps in magazines are over.NO GAZZA 'WTF HAPPENED?' CORRIED AWAY 'IT WAS S***'
She told The Sun: "Anyone can turn their lives around later on, or change career, you don't have to be stuck doing the same thing.
"Back in the day I did lads' mags like Nuts and Zoo and it served me well, but you're not allowed to do anything like that any more, are you?
"God forbid you want to show your body off.
"Looking back, doing it served me really well at that time, but I am just a completely different person.
"Now I am just trying to knuckle down with my studying.
"Every person has got the chance to do something that can make their life better or give their life more purpose.
"I figure out each day as it comes. When I was getting my hair transplant, one lady was having an eyebrow transplant because we know the Nineties killed our brows.
