Sam Faiers reveals her size 8 bikini body and her biggest diet secrets after her one-stone weight loss

She might have been comfortable with her size 10 figure earlier this year.

But Sam Faiers feels better than ever after dropping down to a "comfortable size 8" following her split from Joey Essex.

The 23-year-old TOWIE star has revealed the extent of her epic weight loss, stripping down for a bikini shoot in OK! Magazine.

Showing off her tiny new body, Sam says she's lost over a stone since embarking on her new regime.

She told the mag: "[I've lost] Just over a stone. I was 10 stone and now I’m 8st 10lb. A size 10 used to be quite tight on me, but now I’m a comfortable size 8."

Sam Faiers says she was a large size 10 before her diet.

Sam took weight loss supplements and got in touch with a personal trainer to help her shift the pounds, adding: "Firstly, I decided to get a personal trainer at the Fitness Factory in Brentwood, because I wanted to do everything properly. I started to see him two or three times a week.

"I gave myself a break over Christmas to indulge, but since then I’ve been taking Forza Raspberry K2 supplement to push my weight loss even further. I’m also back at the gym three times a week working out using weights."

Sam also opened up about her split from Joey - and his flourishing relationship with Amy Willerton following his stint on I'm A Celeb.

She added: "I know the real Joey and I honestly don’t think he really has fallen for her. I think they’ve just developed a good friendship."

Sam is rumoured to be set to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house in January, and although she wouldn't confirm whether she will be, she did reveal she's aiming high when it comes to fame.

She admitted: "I’m going to aim high and say I’d be an even bigger star! [Laughs] I’ve got goals for myself and I’m going to make sure I reach them, if and when I leave TOWIE.

"I’m the type of girl who looks forward to being married and having my own family. When that day arrives, I want to be comfortable financially."
