Amy Childs and Kerry Katona slim down ahead of Celebrity Big Brother

Amy Childs

Amy Childs and Kerry Katona's crash Celebrity Big Brother 2011 diet plans showed no signs letting up this week, just days before the show launches. We told last month how Kerry was aiming to slim down to a size 8 for the show, whilst already thin Amy Childs wanted to look her best for the Channel 5 reality series.

We revealed how Amy Childs was filling up on diet coke to lose weight, and despite the questionably healthy technique, it sounds like it’s working.

An onlooker told the Daily Star Sunday this weekend that the former The Only Way Is Essex star looked better than ever when they spotted her tanning in Portugal!

The source said “Amy has such a sexy body and no one could take their eyes off her when she stripped down to her bikini.

“When male housemates see her taking a dip in the Big Brother pool, they are going to want to get in with her. She’s bound to be a hit with male viewers, looking like that.”

Meanwhile Kelly is also hoping to shed a bit of excess weight - in a bid to look good next to Amy!

“She has always had battles when it comes to her weight but going into Big Brother has given her a goal and kept her motivated," a source close to the former Atomic Kitten singer said.

They added: “Not only is she really slim at the moment, she’s also really toned, with even some light muscles.”

A show insider told the tabloid: “With Amy and Kerry looking so sexy and with a few hunks going into the house, there’s bound to be some flirting and probably more.

“Amy is newly single and on the hunt for a man, so there’s a good chance we’ll see romance.”

Other stars in the line up include 80s R&B star Bobby Brown, X Factor twins Jedward and US actress Tara Reid.

A Channel 5 spokesman said last night: “Big Brother execs are in talks with a number of stars about appearing on the series but we’re not confirming any names at the moment.”
