Claire Richards talking about it again!

‘I looked like a person in a fat suit’ Former Steps singer Claire Richards explians how she five dress sizes and rediscovered a new old shape!

Steps big in their time but now just a distant memory from a by gone time!  Claire Richards one of the blonde ones in the group has undergone an amazing transformation after slimming from a size 20 to a 10 in just nine months and says she’s determined to maintain her stunning new body.  I bet she is – that is some weaight lose.

The 31-year-old singer lost five stone in time for her wedding day last November and cannot imagine going back to her former 15 stone shape.  ‘I’m so much happier now and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure I stay this way for good’ she told Mail Online.

Richards admits that it will be a struggle to keep the weight off but says she is determined to avoid falling into the trap of stars such as Natalie Cassidy who have slimmed down dramatically for a fitness DVD and then slowly put the weight back on.

After again!

Claire says “I know that there will be a lot of pressure on me to stay slim and people will be paying close attention to my body to see if I’m managing to keep the weight off. But no-one could put more pressure on me than I’ll be putting on myself. I never want to be in the position I was before.”

Her new fitness DVD 5 Step Fat Attack is now outselling the likes of Spice Girl Mel B and Strictly Come Dancing, Richards says she credits its success to the fact that her story is ‘real’.

The big one!

Richards says that, although it was hard work shifting all of the weight, she felt like a million dollars walking down the aisle when she married her partner Reece Hill.   ‘It was an amazing feeling. There were a lot of people who hadn’t seen me for a while so it was nice to see the looks on the faces,’ she muses.  Now not only does she have a fantastic body, she also has far more energy to run around after her one-year-old son Charlie.

Pop star days: A slim Richards with bandmates Lisa Scott-Lee and Faye Tozer performing at London’s Party in the Park in 1999.  I wonder where they are now and what they look like?
