We’ve seen this formula more times than we’d like to admit. [Insert celebrity name here] goes on holiday, celebrity gets papped in the most unflattering bikini picture collection of ALL time, celeb gets papped in totally not set-up park exercise pics, celeb gets papped looking amazeballs, celeb releases weight loss DVD.
It’s a failsafe production these days. This Christmas it looks like it will be TOWIE‘s Frankie Essex taking the plunging into the celebrity weight loss world, after being papped doing some totally casual exercises with her trainer in the park.
Frankie, 26, has battled with her weight in the past, so obviously it’s good to see her determined to change things.
But on the other hand, are gyms not fashionable anymore? Or is it because paps aren’t allowed in there?
The pictures are made even more awkward by the fact that Frankie has suffered a BIG FAKE TAN #FAIL under her arms, which isn’t really a good look whatever you’re doing.
Sorry Frankie, but it’s difficult to miss those glaring blank spaces in your armpits when they’re surrounded by a hint of orange.
The photos show Frankie participating in a range of exercises, from hula-hooping to boxing, which all seems pretty legit to us.
Until you see the photo below, where Frankie is DEFINITELY NOT giving the paps a secret, sly pose sans any actual exercise equipment.
Definitely not. Nice tan, babes.
We’d also like to point out that it is November, it’s dark and it’s so cold outside that we’re genuinely considering wearing two different coats and three scarves to work (we’ve got bad circulation alright?).
So when we saw Frankie working out in just a small crop top/sports bra and short blue shorts, we had to question how the heck she hasn’t got hypothermia or something.
Anything for an exercise DVD to get fit, right?
We can’t say she’s not dedicated. And after seeing Charlotte Crosby’s weight loss results, we have to admit that we do hope Frankie manages to get to a body that makes her happy.
Charlotte stepped out in London after completing the celeb weight loss cycle herself, looking ruddy amazing in a pink bodycon dress that hugged her new slimmer figure.
She was beaming from ear-to-ear as she strutted her stuff on the streets of London, showing off the fruits of her labour.
And lucrative DVD deal. AHEM.
We guess we’ll see Frankie doing the exact same thing in a couple of months time, when she’s reached the end of this ridiculous celebrity weight loss cycle.
Looking forward to it.
Who’ll be next on the conveyor belt of park exercise photos?
