Speaking about her weightloss journey Kerry told Reveal magazine: “The doctors pulled four-and-a-half litres of fat out.

“I was a dress size 14 and I’m an 8 now. I’ve lost three stone, from 12-and-a-half stone to nine-and-a-half stone.

“Because I’m bipolar, exercise is the best thing to do.

“I do exercise every day – about an hour of yoga every morning – that’s my time to relax, balance and connect with myself.”
