Love Island star Shaughna Phillips has started a major health kick after putting on two stone during the global pandemic.
The 27-year-old opened up about her weight gain during the national lockdown in a paid Instagram post on her stories.
Partnering with a heath company called Jonple, the reality star has asked fans to join her in her health and fitness overhaul in a vulnerable video as she beats the scales over the next few months.
In the video she said: “In lockdown I definitely indulged a lot more than I used to when it came to food. I did end up gaining quite a bit of weight. I gained two stone.

“It’s all about having the right frame of mind when it comes to what you’re eating and what you’re putting in your body.”
In the two-minute video, she revealed she had overindulged on junk food during the lockdown, but with the help of her new fitness team she was ready to get back on track to a healthy lifestyle.
She captioned the post: “Some of you have already noticed, but for those who haven’t I have recently been trying to get back into the swing of things (life basically!), and that includes working out and eating better, as well as trying to adapt my working life around my new healthy lifestyle!
“It is safe to say that this has NOT been an overnight success but it’s a marathon, not a sprint!
“It finally feels like I’m starting to get a hand of things, and I’m excited again about life as we used to know it returning!”

Fans were quick to congratulate the reality star on her fitness journey, with many others hoping to join her.
One user wrote: “Shaughna you have so much love and integrity and I respect you so much for this!! You are gorgeous inside and out.
“Leading people to healthy choices and fitness without selling diet pills and pushing diet culture shows how much you really care!! You should be proud!!
Another commented: “What I love about Shaughna is the fact she’s real and is comfortable and confident in her own skin and isn’t here to impress others, but only herself.
“I really find it quite sad how someone talks about their weight, I wish people would never put someone down like that. So upsetting.
“But on the positive side goooo Shaughna for being real and yourself.”
Showing that she means business, Shaughna later posted a video of her taking part in a viral running challenge to get in the frame before the timer runs out.
Wearing a pair of black leggings and a grey workout jacket, the reality star is seen running around her street in front of the camera.
“Life’s a marathon not a sprint anywayzzzzz”, she wrote alongside the clip with an emoji of a woman swishing her hair.
