CELEBRITY SAS Who Dares Wins star Jennifer Ellison has opened up on her three stone weight loss following her gruelling TV show ordeal.
The former Brookside actress, 39, did herself proud on the gritty Channel 4 reality series, which she branded as "terrifying and unbearable."
During the physical and emotional ordeal of tasks set by top ex special forces teams, the telly favourite was forced to recall the horror of her house "being shot at."
Jennifer told how she hoped the show would help her regain confidence after the horror incident.
She recently posed in a colourful bikini following her three stone weight loss and has opened up on her secrets to Closer Magazine.
Talking of her SAS Who Dares Wins experience, she said: "I lost a stone since doing it.
"I've since lost more because it really gave me a kick up the backside, because the gym is daunting to me.
"I was scared of the gym but then after SAS, I said if I could do that, I could do anything."
Talking of her weight loss she added: "I'm down to 10 and a half stone now and I'm in the gym five times a week – doing a mix of cardio and weights.
"I feel great."
Her fitness progress comes after Jennifer completely transformed her appearance a few years ago and documented her weight loss online with fans.
Speaking about her weight gain in the past, Jennifer admitted: "It was just self neglect… I went from being a West End star – had the baby and got post natal depression."
She explained: “I’d had three babies. I am happily married and content and the weight creeps on
“I’m not embarrassed. When you sell pictures of yourself, people are going to be interested when you don’t look great. I’ve never got upset over it.
“I was in Brookside when I was 12, I’ve grown up with it. You have to take the rough with the smooth.”
