Her pregnancy has come with health issues though as Chanelle has suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, which is more likely to occur in overweight women, and meant she was vomiting up to 40 times a day.
The yo-yo dieter, who is six months pregnant and was 16st at the time of discovering she was expecting, recently discovered she could also be at risk of diabetes, and said the experience had been ‘hell’.
Speaking to Closer, Chanelle also admitted she is riddled with guilt over her unhealthy lifestyle as she admitted to concerns that she would put her baby at risk.
She said: ‘My health issues during this pregnancy made me feel really guilty. It’s my own irresponsibility that may have caused my health to impact on my baby. I regret being unhealthy now for the sake of the baby.’
Since her appearance on Big Brother 10 years ago, Chanelle was catapulted to fame with a huge focus of her public profile being on her fluctuating weight although she is now super confident.
After gaining six stone and shooting from a size eight to a size 16, she embarked on a huge health kick in 2014 which saw her hurtle back to her tiny size, while showing off her physique in a series of barely-there bikinis.
