The TV star, who rose to fame on the Channel 4 show at the age of 13, shared how she always struggled with her height due to her ‘slow metabolism’, with her parents even claiming they ‘don’t know what happened’ with its size.

She said The sun: “I’ve tried and tested every diet under the sun, but my weight has been a struggle since I was eight years old.”

Discussing the different methods she tried from a young age, Amy continued, “ Every year since then has been a different diet for me. I started with Slimming World and then did shakes and bars. I didn’t eat any carbohydrates and just live on chicken and vegetables. ‘

The Celebs Go Dating star went on to say that over the years she found it difficult to follow conflicting advice from nutritionists and personal trainers, while her fellow TV star parents struggled to determine the cause of her weight gain as a child.

But after falling six inches from her waist and getting her size 20 figure smaller and smaller, Amy has now stated, “It’s been an ongoing battle, but I think I’ve finally cracked the code.”

The beauty has revised her lifestyle and figure by watching her portion sizes and working up a sweat with YouTube dance videos during lockdown.

And her hard work is clearly paying off, as in February, Amy looked fabulous when she showed off her incredible three-stone weight loss transformation in a before and after video.

Amy took to Instagram and shared an old photo of herself at her largest wearing a white vest top along with a clip of her now.

Amy captioned the original snap: ‘How it started’, before she could then be seen dancing through her kitchen in a black top and matching leggings.

The reality star captioned the clip: ‘And now I’m living my best life,’ while indulging in a healthy meal.

Amy was inundated with congratulations from her followers praising her for her efforts.

In January, the TV personality was forced to hit back on cruel internet trolls after receiving ‘mean’ comments about a TikTok video.

Amy took to Instagram where she talked about her ‘shock’ at the level of nasty messages she received, commenting, ‘People are mean, they’re awful!’

Amy, who recently lost more than three stones, gave the naysayers a piece of her head and said ‘f ** k you’ to her haters, while also thanking her supporters who shared kind words.

While filming herself on her phone, the reality star shared that she is not a regular user of the video sharing app TikTok, but will occasionally browse and upload the odd video.

However, she was surprised and hurt by the messages she received under her latest post.

She said, ‘I just read my comments and people are mean. They are awful.

‘I mean thank goodness I have a strong b **** y spirit because let me tell you, if this was anyone else oh my God they’d be crying their eyes out right now.’
