But she didn't recognise herself in the video and instead questioned who it was.

Ruth explained: "Why is he filming that enormous woman? Dragging a sun lounger behind her with a very large bottom.

"That was my moment, I was straight onto that 'get rid of this baby weight'."

In other interviews she has also opened up about experiencing weight gain during menopause.

Two years ago a viewer on This Morning, Jessica, said she found it difficult to lose weight during menopause.

Sympathising, Ruth claimed: "It completely affects my ability to lose weight.

"I try not to let it ruin my life but at least you're doing those things and you're going to boot camp. You're trying your best.

"As long as you're enjoying your life and living your life it's not all about your weight. Jessica, enjoy your life, I'm sure you look great."
