Chanelle Hayes has been spotted enjoying a stroll in the surf at a beach in Spain in a yellow bikini after losing eight and a half stone in weight.
The ex-Big Brother star had rocked a similar yellow bikini on holiday three years ago in November 2018 and it’s clearly her colour.
The reality TV contestant, who is a body positivity advocate, opted for a gastric sleeve after struggling with food addiction.
The 33-year-old mum of two is open about her body on Instagram and shared that one of the best things since surgery for her was ‘being able to move more and spend more quality time with my boys’, who are aged four and 11.
Chanelle, who underwent the procedure in September 2020, is also a fan of praising her body as something she is ‘grateful’ for as well as prioritising her mental health.
Sharing a recent slow-motion clip of herself waving her limbs and dancing on the spot, Chanelle wrote: ‘Let’s talk about bodies. We all have them, we all dislike parts of them, we all see other people who have bodies more preferable to our own tastes.
‘But let’s reeeaally talk bodies: we need them to live, they enable us to breathe, to move, to laugh, to think, to dance, to feel. Our bodies contain our hearts, vital organs, our souls, our most important pieces.’
‘We only see the outsides of our bodies. But who cares about a phone case more than they care about the actual phone?!’ she added
She continued, candidly: ‘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. And something that is different to everybody else’s, always will be, and that’s ok.’
The model found fame as a 19-year-old on the eighth series of Big Brother in 2007, where she struck up a relationship with housemate Ziggy Lichman, with whom she has stayed in touch.
She has son Blakely, 11, from a previous relationship with footballer Matthew Bates and Frankie, four, with ex-partner Ryan Oates. She is now in relationship that she’s kept out of the spotlight.
