Honey G Speaks Out About Lockdown Health Kick And Weight Loss

Former X Factor star Honey G has spoken out about her new fitness drive for 2020, having recently completed her first triathlon - saying the weight loss that has come with it has also given her the 'confidence' to put herself out there.

Honey G - whose real name is Anna Gilford - appeared on the 13th series of The X Factor, which aired in 2016 and was eventually won by Matt Terry. Having become more known at the time for her unique style than for her singing abilities, she was one of the most talked-about acts of the series.

After using lockdown as the perfect time to get into exercise, Gilford even managed to complete her first triathlon last month, having shared a post-race photo on Instagram.

Speaking to the Daily Star about the achievement, Gilford said: "It was an amazing experience. We're just waiting for the times to be uploaded but I definitely know that that was a PB.

"I was a lot faster than last time, I've been having some swimming coaching lessons. My swimming has definitely improved."

She continued: "Lockdown has proved to me that doing lots of exercise can make you lose weight.

"I went to see a top obesity specialist and a dietician in the past and I was trying to lose weight by changing my diet but during lockdown I combined changing my diet and doing a large amount of exercise.

Gilford said with the health kick she's also found a new body confidence, which was an area she used to have 'a bit of a complex about'.

"The weight loss has definitely given me the confidence to put myself out there," she said.

"I used to be size 16 to 18 but I recently bought a pair of size 12 trousers which feels so good."

Saying she's now also back on the dating scene, Gilford added: "The weight loss is making me feel better about myself and it's nice to wear something more revealing and sexy and know I can strut my thing."
