Michelle Heaton was looking pretty trim today as she arrived at ITV's studios for an appearance on Loose Women.

Liberty X star Michelle, who gave birth to son Aaron Jay - AJ - in February, was all smiles as she made her way inside ahead of a debate about breast feeding.

In November 2012, Michelle underwent a double mastectomy in a bid to reduce her risk of developing cancer (due to a faulty BRCA2 gene), meaning she is unable to breastfeed AJ.

Wearing a sky blue pair of skinny jeans, teamed with trainers and a casual grey top, Michelle was certainly looking good for someone who has recently given birth.

But before you think Michelle has been on a crazy fad diet to drop the baby weight, she has reassured fans that her weight loss regime is healthy and sensible following her caesarean.

Speaking earlier this month, Michelle told her followers that it has "not been easy" shifting the post-baby pounds and told women to never feel pressured into slimming down after giving birth.

She said: "It's hard not being able to work out yet, but as long as your diet is clean you should see results regardless. Hang in there girls! It's not easy! But we can do it if you want it."

Michelle added: "Regardless of what you may have seen/read, I still have a long way to go, 1 stone & 5 pounds to be precise!"

Letting her followers in on her secret to looking great, she also admitted: "Thank god for Spanx in the meantime lol #wecandoit xxxxxxx."
