It comes after Frankie revealed her weight crept up to 12 stone and 13 pounds after ‘hitting rock bottom’ in lockdown.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, the former TOWIE star, 33, admitted she ‘felt like s***’ when she discovered her weight in November after ‘swerving those scales’ during the coronavirus pandemic.
The beautician – who has shared candid images of herself in underwear – said she aimed to lose up to one and a half stone in eight weeks using Muscle Food’s Goal Getters plan, and would also embark on an exercise regime set up by her personal trainer beau, Luke.

‘I make so many excuses’, the media personality told us. ‘I got on the scales about two weeks ago at the night time – which you shouldn’t really do – and I was 12st 13lbs. I just thought, ”Oh my God!”
‘I kept making excuses until I hit rock bottom and got on the scales. I didn’t even tell Luke at first, but I’m only hurting myself at the end of the day. It’s not really about the dress size for me, as if I lose weight, I’d still be able to fit into a lot of my clothes.’
Reality star Frankie has been open about her fluctuating figure in the past, having shed two stone back in 2016, before gaining weight a year later due to a crippling knee injury.’
The older sister of Joey Essex overhauled her eating habits once again in 2019, but insisted she’s struggled to commit to the lifestyle since COVID-19 struck.
She added: ‘I tend to put on weight on my legs and my belly, but I usually have a small waist. I recently started working at a school, and I’ve just been eating all the sweet treats! I can’t eat what I want everyday.’
