Who's that girl? Big Brother star Josie Gibson is almost unrecognisable after losing even MORE weight

Who's that girl? Former Big Brother star Josie Gibson showed off her noticeably slimmer frame on Let's Do Lunch With Gino And Mel last week

She said in an interview earlier this month that she's a 'comfortable' size 16.

But former Big Brother star Josie Gibson is almost unrecognisable since her reality TV days, showing off her much slimmer frame as she appeared on ITV's new lunchtime show Let's Do Lunch With Gino And Mel.

Josie, 25, covered up in a printed blue kaftan-style top for her appearance on the show last week, but her weight loss was clear to see.

The pretty blonde said earlier this month that she was happy enough with her size 16 figure, but added she is considering having surgery to sort out her breasts.

She said: 'I've given up drinking and it's marvellous. Your skin's better, the whites of your eyes look better and you feel better. I'm a size 16 and I'm comfortable.'

'But I'm going to get my boobs done as one's a D cup and the other's three times smaller. I'd never have lipo - I exercise to tone up.

'I'm shaped like a Christmas tree and one boob's bigger than the other so I'd only give myself four out of ten. I love my eyes, but I really have to work on my bottom half.'

Josie was prompted to lose weight after coming out of the Big Brother house in 2010, and managed to slim down from 16st 7lb to 13st 7lbs.

Talking about losing weight, Josie said: 'I came out of the Big Brother house looking like Ten Ton Tessie. I put on a good two stone in the house. I didn't stop eating in there. I love my food.

'Obviously I wanted to lose weight as I'd turned into a bit of a heifer.

'Now I just feel really fit and healthy.

‘Before I lost weight I was nearly size 20 and my only exercise was partying. I've tried all the diets - I did the Cambridge Diet and lasted from the meeting until I got home!

'They gave me all the bits and pieces but I ate a week's worth of food on the spot, then stopped for a kebab.'

Since winning last year's Big Brother, and then taking part in Ultimate Big Brother, Josie has been working hard to further her presenting career, and has been fronting Channel 5 magazine show OKTV this week.

Before presenting her first show, Josie tweeted her followers: 'Omg super excited about my first proper presenting gig!

'Bit nervous but Mr Brazier really helping me. He's the nicest guy ever!!!'
