Vicky Pattison has revealed her happiness can be affected if she puts on weight.

Fans of the 28-year-old will know, Vicky has struggled with her weight in the past and she openly admits in her autobiography Nothing But The Truth, that she turned to food to 'make herself feel better' when things got tough during her relationship with ex-fiancé Ricci Guarnaccio and following their split.

Nearly three years later, Vicky is now a size eight after embarking on a strict training regime and diet, and has maintained her smaller figure. Content with her size now, Vicky has said that if she notices she has put weight on, it can make her unhappy.

Her confession came after the Loose Women panel had been discussing Chanelle Hayes and her recent admission on her weight. Chanelle, who is now a size 16, has declared she has 'never been happier' - despite putting on six stone.

Vicky credited Chanelle on her attitude and said: "Fair play to Chanelle, I love the girl and as long as she's happy, I'm happy." Although, she did admit she doesn't share the same view.

Vicky explained her own relationship with her body, and said: "My weight is directly correlated to my happiness. It's hard to maintain looking good and doing all the things you want to... but if I got to a size 10 or 12... I like my body at a size 8 and I think, 'Come on pull your socks up, get back to the gym.'"

Former Big Brother star Chanelle, meanwhile, has insisted she is in no rush to slim down.

She explained in a VT message on Loose Women that she has tried every 'yo yo diet' going, but she now likes who she is.

Chanelle said: "I don't feel like I need to be thin. I don't feel like I need to lose weight. I've done so many yo yo diets over the years, I'm done with them. I'm not Cindy Crawford, I never have been and I never will be - I'm just Chanelle and enjoy exactly who I am."

Earlier this week, Chanelle posed completely naked to show off her figure and explained losing weight is no longer her priority, as she wants to focus on her family instead.

Chanelle is mum to son Blakely, five.
