Claire Richards has posed naked for a photo shoot in a bid to silence rumours once and for all that she has taken her weight-loss too far.
Last week, the 37-year-old star was accused by Best magazine that her friends were worried she could be becoming anorexic – but has now proved that the report couldn’t have been further from the truth.
Posing for the magazine, Claire showed off her Healthy figure as she dared to bare all.
Speaking to Best, Claire said: “I have nothing to hide, so let’s draw a line under all these rumours – I’m a size 10, not a size 6. I don’t think I look unhealthy.
“First I was attacked as being “too fat” and now I’m attacked for being “too thin” – I cant win!”
The former Steps star revealed that rather than stick a diet, she simply calorie counts daily in a bid to stay in shape.
“My weight-loss isn’t about following a specific diet, she said. “It’s taken two years of restricting myself to 1,500 calories a day.”
Already a proud mum of two, Claire also revealed that she decided to lose the weight to be able to have another baby.
“I have a wonderful incentive to keep in shape – a longed–for baby. If I achieve that, the last thing I’ll worry about is my size, she said.
“I’m glad I did these pictures, though, because If I gain the weight again, which in all honesty is very likely to happen with me, I can stick them on the fridge to remind me to keep on track.”
Good for you, Claire. And we think you look great.
