The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant, who had appeared on ITV show Loose Women, has now taken to Twitter to discuss her recent weight loss.

Claire, whose size has fluctuated from an eight to a 20 over the years, told her fans: "For all those asking about my weight loss, sorry if it seems I'm ignoring it but everyone is so bored of my yoyo-ing including myself.

"i'm just not going there again! I've worked hard &from now on I'm just keeping my head down and getting on with it. #busymum x."

Claire was also quick to sing the praises of her fellow Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha, revealing one of the secrets behind her new slim body.

She added: "My best tip is 2 eat healthy & try my friend @nadiasawalha cookbooks, they're fab & you can still enjoy good food. Which is good as I love my food. #longroad #worthit.

"It's so nice to have your support whatever my size. But it's for me and my family now.You are all so wonderful I can't help but feel humble."

Claire found fame in the 90s with pop band Steps and has previously revealed that her weight was an issue from the word go.

"I was told I would have to lose weight the day I was offered the job and I was only a size 12," she admitted last year.

Last week, Claire debuted her new slender body ahead of another appearance on Loose Women.
