Chanelle Hayes shows off eight-stone weight loss after gastric band surgery and reveals what she now eats in a day

CHANELLE Hayes showed off her eight-stone weight loss by comparing her size to an old pair of her joggers.

The 33-year-old, who had a gastric sleeve operation after hitting 17 stone, proudly posed alongside the tracksuit she wore on the day she had surgery.

She then stood inside one leg of the trousers to show her incredible weight loss.

Chanelle captioned the Instagram post: "These are the joggers I wore the day I went in for my gastric sleeve surgery.

"I kept them to compare a year on and it is completely mind blowing for me to actually see the difference."

She also listed what she used to eat in a day because she had "so many DMs asking" her.

Her day of eating included scrambled eggs with chorizo, two chocolate cookies, a slice of roast port, one potato, half a Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, gravy, broccoli, peas and "a bit of Wensleydale cheese."

Chanelle admitted before her surgery she "would have eaten all the above and so much more."

"But I feel satiated and full after such small amounts now I never feel like I’m missing out because that gnawing hunger of being on a diet isn’t there," she explained.

"I have noticed that a year on I can definitely eat more than a year ago but my level of restriction differs on a day to day basis."

Chanelle, who refused to leave the house for a year because of her size 18 figure, had the key-hole surgery after turning down work because she was ashamed of her body.

The procedure, which removed a large part of the stomach to limit food intake, helped her shed the immense amount of bodyweight.

The star, famous for her romance with Ziggy Lichman on Big Brother, insisted everyone has a bikini body and shared the shots to prove it.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Chanelle, 33, says she had the op after fears her weight could kill her and crippled her financially.

Opening up about how her “addiction” to binge-eating saw her weight spiral out of control, Chanelle says: “It was horrendous. I didn’t want to see or speak to anyone. I didn’t even want to leave the house or go anywhere – I was like a hermit in my home.

“I didn’t speak to anyone for a year. I literally saw nobody, so I definitely didn't have a love life. I didn’t even have a life.

“I just couldn’t bear to do anything. Every time I had an offer to work I would just turn it down, so it massively impacted me financially."

But the surgery hasn't been without its downsides as she showed off her "saggy and baggy skin."

Posting pictures of her relaxing in the sunshine in a blue bikini, she wrote: "After years of hating my body for being too big, it’s now small enough that my skin looks saggy and baggy.

"I have four boobs because my implants are in one place and my actual skin and breast tissue are in another.

"I have stretch marks on practically every area of my body, cellulite is my constant companion no matter how big or small I may be at any given time."
