Since her appearance on Big Brother 10 years ago, Chanelle, who is already mother to her son Blakely with footballer ex Matthew Bates, was catapulted to fame with a huge focus of her public profile being on her fluctuating weight.

After gaining six stone and shooting from a size eight to a size 16, she embarked on a huge health kick in 2014 which saw her hurtle back to her tiny size, while showing off her physique in a series of barely-there bikinis.

As her troublesome pregnancy has gone on, she has repeatedly shared snaps of her past frame with Tuesday's possibly being her slinkiest to date while adding a caption reading: '#ThrowbackBody #FutureBody'. 

Despite her determination, concerned fans swarmed the site to comment: 'Lush bikini dnt go so thin keep ur curves, curves are more attractive than bone. Take ur time and you'll keep the weight off...

To silence her haters, Chanelle made a widely-discussed appearance on Loose Women earlier this year in which she stripped down to a bikini after unflattering pictures of her on a beach were published - leading to an onslaught of hurtful comments.  

Earlier this year, Chanelle was given a sick bucket as she appeared on This Morning to talk about her 'vile' pregnancy. She apologised for being unwell as she discussed her 'high risk' pregnancy with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

Chanelle admitted that she was 'miserable' and that she would 'break the scales' with her current figure.

Failing to muster up a smile, Chanelle - who is six months pregnant - didn't hold back in discussing her journey to motherhood a second time around. 

Ruth asked her to clarify previous remarks of 'feeling like a whale' - to which she responded: 'I was in make-up once and there was a big picture of a gorilla and I felt like that. It’s horrible, you feel bad.'

Talking about the tough time she's been having, Chanelle, who was 16st at the time of discovering she was expecting, described: 'I’m on high risk on this pregnancy. I'm always on this on fear of being on drips in hospital. It’s been vile. Disgusting.'

The star, who has previously admitted to throwing up forty times a day, continued: 'I’m so grateful that I can baby, but I'm having a miserable time. Especially with polycystic ovaries and being overweight. 

'There’s so much talk about post natal depression – but you can also feel like that when you are pregnant. Especially when you’re not happy with your body beforehand and being sick constantly. 

'I wouldn’t change it (being pregnant) for the world but I'm not ashamed to say I’m miserable,' she reiterated. 

'Drips in hospital': Chanelle didn't look pleased as she continued to discuss her difficult pregnancy

And the yoyo dieter - who continued to be on the verge of throwing up throughout the interview - described how her weight has had an effect on her second pregnancy.  

'I have had so many different tests and regulations that need to be done in hospital purely now because of my weight. I have had to do extra tests for diabetes, preclampsia, meet a consultant over a midwife- all just because of weight.

'I don’t know how much I weight right now. I would break the scales,' she noted.  Looking on the brighter side, Ruth asked her what her 'happy place weight' would be'.

Chanelle longingly replied: 'I would feel happier at size 10. I can't wait to have the baby and then go for power walks and have a healthy diet.

'There's 62 days and counting till I have my baby!' she revealed. 

Despite already knowing what the answer would be, Eamonn asked if she would consider a third child.  

'No, that won't be happening,' she quickly replied, before expanding: 'I don’t think my pregnancy is fair on my son as I cant do all these sporty things with him.'

The sickly star also revealed she had to 'eat whenever she could' and was currently craving 'watermelon.'

Another thing that added to her misery was the prospect of having another son: 'It’s annoying. It's just going to be football and fast cars over ballerina classes.'
