The X Factor’s Honey G has shared new pictures of herself looking completely different after kicking off a new exercise regime.
The singer shared details of her fitness routine after losing two stone and dropping from a size 18 to a 12.
Honey G, real name Anna Gilford, posted pictures of herself in a cycling outfit from a recent trip to the Lake District and shared updates with her followers.
The singer has put her new look down to regular running, yoga and taking part in triathlons.
‘The weight loss has definitely given me the confidence to put myself out there,’ she told the Daily Star.
‘I’ve always had a bit of a complex about my weight and now I can shop in the likes of Topshop and Miss Selfridge.’
The 40-year-old also told her Instagram followers that she’s teamed up with The Mental Health Foundation to try to create more awareness.
‘I’ve teamed up with The Mental Health Foundation to create awareness around preventing mental health problems by driving change towards a mentally healthy society for all,’ she captioned the new pictures.
She also spoke about the benefits to getting back to nature, saying: ‘Get involved by sharing a post, image or video with family and friends and across your social networks – of something in nature which has boosted your mood.’

‘It can be anything: a houseplant, the flowers in a neighbours window, the sound of birdsong… anything you make a connection with.’
The rapper and singer appeared on The X Factor’s 13th series in 2016 and exited in fifth place, with Nicole Scherzinger’s act Matt Terry going on to win.
It comes after Honey G recently defended Simon Cowell and the ITV programme amid backlash from other former contestants.
X Factor was blasted by Jedward, who claimed ‘every contestant was a slave to the show’, with Lloyd Daniels previously saying he didn’t feel he could be open about dating a man during his time on the programme.
A spokesperson for The X Factor said: ‘Duty of care to our contestants is of the utmost importance to us. We take welfare very seriously and have measures in place to ensure that they are supported.’
