Despite receiving “ great messages from women, ” Kelly confessed that some of her male fans these days can be a bit more negative about her appearance.
“Men are like” you’re beyond your best, “or” you were sexy once, “but whatever you get, you always get,” said the Kent presenter.
‘When you grow up with someone you don’t want them to age, that’s weird. And I get it, people remember me as this pin-up girl.
‘Then they see me as this 40 year old fat girl and they are like no! I get it, it’s funny. But people grow up, people grow up, people change, it happens. ‘
Kelly started modeling when she was 16 after winning a beauty pageant that her proud mother took her in.
Campaigns for the likes of Bravissimo, Foster’s and Walker’s chips followed, as well as shoots with boys’ magazines like GQ, Loaded and FHM.

FHM named Kelly, who is currently in a long-term relationship with Italian Jeremy Parisi, as the winner of their 100 Sexiest Women in the World list in 2005, which surveyed 15 million people.
Meanwhile, Kelly, a SlimFast weight loss ambassador, also admitted gaining weight during lockdown and said she struggled with her body image before.
She said, “I’ve learned a lot of life lessons during lockdown, like how to bake the perfect sourdough pizza and how to make the best homemade ice cream!
While it’s really important to show the world that not all beauty is a size eight – on the other hand, lockdown led to a lot of daily ‘snacking’ for me, the inevitable weight gain and not feeling well.
“So now I’m ready to hit my” reset “button and rediscover my slimmer, happier and healthier self, thanks to SlimFast.”
Last month, Kelly shared a sneak peek at her 2021 calendar in a very intimate behind-the-scenes showing, with the model wearing a leopard print outfit.
Speaking to FEMAIL, the TV celebrity (pictured on vacation earlier this year) also reflected on struggling with her body image in her 30s.
Kelly added, ‘I want to be the best version of myself, so it’s important for me to maintain a certain weight and be healthy – and not have the ridiculously lean or body that I had when I was 20. That’s not what I’m aiming for. For me, if I have a good size 10-12 I am happy. ‘
Joking that there seemed to be two types of people in lockdown, the fitness buffs and the food experiments, the model said she fell firmly into the latter category.
“ When I’m stuck at home it gets pretty intense, so I just found therapy in the kitchen, ” she recalls. “It just seemed that when we all go downstairs, I want to eat.
‘I was taking my daily walks, but I just wasn’t moving as much as normal and I wasn’t as healthy.

‘I bought a pizza oven, an ice cream maker, I bought a panini maker, I don’t think there’s anything left for sale, I bought everything – everything Currys had for sale I bought. I was bored and hungry all the time. ‘
But now Kelly, who often presents a garden segment for This Morning, is ready to get back in shape and will be sharing her weight loss travel experiences in real time in a series of social media posts with SlimFast for their Summer Smasher Challenge.
She said, “ Now that we’re coming out on the other side, it’s about focusing on being healthier and lighter. We know that being overweight makes it much more difficult for our bodies to fight the coronavirus.

Even losing 5 pounds or 1 kilo can really make a difference. It’s all about making small, positive, and lasting changes to our overall health and wellness. ‘
The TV celebrity, who currently presents Heart Breakfast with her co-host JK for the rest of August, also thought about struggling with her body image during her 30s.
“I was thin for so long,” she recalls. ‘And then you suddenly get over 35 and the kilos don’t fall off like they used to.’
Kelly, who dropped to a size 10/12 after crawling to a size 16 in 2017, said, “I didn’t notice the weight at first and when I did, I got on board with SlimFast and it was a revelation.”
