Mortified nurse sheds seven stone after her bikini top SNAPS on holiday in Benidorm… and claims it’s all down to diet drink loved by Chloe Ferry and model Demi Rose


Mel Pearson piled on the pounds after the death of her mum - but has now dropped five dress sizes

A MORTIFIED nursery nurse shed seven stone after her bikini top SNAPPED on a family holiday, exposing her to a group of total strangers.

Size 28 Mel Pearson decided to squeeze herself into a size 18 bikini for the trip to Benidorm, Spain - with disastrous results.

The now 25-year-old ballooned to 20 stone when she started comfort eating following the death of her mum, at the age of just 16.

Mel, who has a fiance called Amy, would snack on crisps, biscuits and chocolate - while surviving on a diet of ready meals, chips and chicken nuggets.

When the bikini flew open, she was beside herself with embarrassment - and decided to tackle the problem.

She decided to hit the gym five days a week and started taking Skinny Sprinkles, a slimming aid loved by the likes of Geordie Shore stars Holly Hagan and Chloe Ferry, model Demi Rose and Towie's Chloe Sims.

Mel said: “My mum was a great cook and I went from eating three regular, healthy meals a day to living off junk.

“My weight climbed to 20 stone, I wasn’t eating healthily, I was drinking too much and I was doing absolutely no exercise.

“The trigger came when I went away with my family and my bikini snapped.

“I was mortified but thinking back, I should never have squeezed my size 28 frame into a size 18 bikini top. It was a disaster waiting to happen.

“As soon as I got home, I took action. The doctor put me on weight loss tablets which I hated but I did lose three stone in just eight weeks.
