The former BBC Breakfast favourite, 37, revealed she has packed on the pounds and blamed it on biscuits and crisps.
What did Steph say?
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday (May 27), Steph wrote: “After gaining at least a stone in weight during lockdown (after not correctly shielding myself from the biscuit tin and crisp drawer) I have decided today is the day to do something about it.”
Steph revealed she is taking things one step at a time. She plans to mark the start of her weight-loss journey by simply washing her gym clothes.
“I’m going to wash my gym gear,” she added, simply.
After gaining at least a stone in weight during lockdown (after not correctly shielding myself from the biscuit tin and crisp drawer) I have decided today is the day to do something about it.

She tweeted: “Well, that was fun/scary. Cheers for all the messages.
