Gogglebox's Amy Tapper admits 'nerves' as she poses in swimming costume after 3.5 stone weight loss

GOGGLEBOX star Amy Tapper showed off her 3.5st weight loss in a slimming blue swimsuit on a boat.

The 21-year-old has spent years doing fad-dieting without success until turning her life around in lockdown.

Amy, who starred on the Channel 4 show with her family from 2013 to 2018, was told by doctors she suffers from a slow metabolism.

But now she's shrunk by three dress sizes, from a 26 to a 20, after cutting down her portion sizes — and dancing around her home.

Amy took to Instagram to showcase her slimmed down figure in a holiday pic.

Despite being nervous to post it, Amy said she was "feeling good" in herself.

She captioned the snap: "Captain Amy here telling you to OWN IT and have the best weekend!

"Quite nervous to share this image but having the best time away with my squad and feeling good ☀️❤️"

Fans rushed to comment on the reality star's confident post.

One said: "You look INCREDIBLE!!!! So proud of you always ❤️"

A second wrote: "Beautiful!"

Another penned: "You are radiating pure joy and fabulousness ❤️"

During lockdown, almost half of us have piled on weight, a survey by King’s College London found.

But being cooped up indoors has helped Amy LOSE six inches from her waist.

Telling The Sun how she's done it, Amy says: “I have been doing quite a lot of dance workouts at home, every day. They’re 25 minutes long on YouTube.

“It is exercising to a beat and gets you going.

“I did a One Direction one the other day. They get you in good spirits for the rest of the day.

"If not every day, it will be every other day, and I mix and match it with yoga. I add in squats while brushing my teeth, too. I love squats.

“Every person’s body is different and everyone’s metabolism is different.

“Over the past ten years I think I have come to a conclusion about what is best for me and what works for me. Before, I would lose 2st easily, then my body would just never budge after the 2st.

“It has been an ongoing battle but I think I have finally cracked the code.

“I am no professional but what works for me is fitting my diet around my life, rather than fitting me around a diet.

“Everything needs to be in moderation — if you are doing a shake diet or something extreme, you are going to end up falling off it at one point.

"The minute you even eat an apple, you put on weight. So I found that just changing up my lifestyle worked well.

“I carried on eating the same foods but just cutting the portions slightly.

“I don’t want a drastic loss, I want a healthy lifestyle and, once I drop the weight, I want it to be gone for good.

“Right now I feel great. I have so much more energy.”
