Speaking during an appearance on ITV's Loose Women, the 38-year-old brunette beauty said: 'I got a bit carried away and tucked my tummy in a little bit... I said, "You've just got to take one for the team Jeremy, as I long as I look OK..."

'When I see a picture of myself, I think, "Oh I look nice, but I might make it a bit better." I'm on telly so people can see what I look like. I'm not hiding anything.'
However, Kelly defiantly stood by her decision to edit her photos, as she has worked as a model for so many years and so looks at pictures with a professional eye, and because she's gained weight as she's gotten older.
She explained: 'I think because I've worked in the industry for so many years I think I look at pictures in a different way. I do the same with my pictures of my garden.

Kelly shared an image taken by a photographer at Ascot on Saturday, but when compared to the original, the model's Instagram snap showed Jeremy's waist bizarrely distorted, as it bulged to one side, and she looked noticeably slimmer.
In a post that has since been deleted by the star, Kelly told her fans on Sunday that she does retouch her photos on social media, but only to rectify a 'bad angle'.
Underneath a side-by-side comparison of the original image and her retouched version, Kelly wrote: 'Yes I Retouch my Pictures!! Especially if they are taken in Midday Sun as it creates Shadows! It is not because of my Weight!'.
Kelly added that she also removed any sign of 'nippleage', explaining: 'I smoothed out the Crease in My Dress because I was sitting in a car for 2 Hours and I took away any sign of Nippleage (they get pointy when I'm excited) etc!!'

'I'll leave the Nips and Shadows in if you want?! I really don't care either way. I was just bored on the way home so was playing with Some Apps. We all do it.'
The star ended her post with some cheeky hashtags before musing the topic would make a good debate during her Monday appearance on Loose Women: '#NipornoNipthatistheQuestion? 'good debate for @loosewomen Tomorroe See ya there #MotherPlugger.'
Despite the picture alteration, Kelly's snap sent the model's fans into meltdown as they flocked to her comments to heap praise on the duo.

While Kelly stood out from the crowd, her choice of ensemble flouted the notoriously strict dress code for Royal Ascot.
A more relaxed dress code is in place for the Windsor enclosure, which means strapless dresses are allowed for the first time.
But if Kelly fancied mingling with the elite in the Royal Enclosure she would have been met with a set of much stricter rules which not only bans bardot and off-the-shoulder dresses but also fancy dress, novelty and promotional clothing of any kind.
Kelly is a regular at Ascot, but has also been keeping busy recently with her horticultural interests, hosting her own gardening segment on This Morning.
