The X Factor finalist’s abundant curves caught the attention of Simon Cowell on national television as he openly flirted like a good one for the weeks she was in the competition.   Now 26-year-old Ruth Lorenzo looks better than ever after losing a stone on what she calls The X Factor Diet.

She told Closer magazine: ‘I’ve dropped from a size 12/14 to a 10 on top and a size 12 jeans since I was picked as a finalist in September, just by rushing around.   ‘My clothes are looser and I’ve gone from 11.5 to 10.5st.   ‘I didn’t change my eating habits, but running around like a crazy woman means the weight’s just dropped off.’

Ruth has now joined the month-long X Factor Live Tour but she’s determined to stay in shape despite the temptations on the road.   Oh and some gossip to follow – cat fight!!!!!!

X Factor best friends Alexandra Burke and Ruth Lorenzo reportedly had to be pulled apart after an argument turned physical last week.  Cat Fight, Cat Fight….meow……..

The two women met and became best friends while competing on the ITV1 talent show last year. Spanish-born Ruth was voted off in week 8 of the show while Alexandra went on to win, landing her a contract worth a rumoured £1million in the UK and a £3million record deal in the US.   The pair moved into a flat together after the series ended and enjoyed a luxury holiday in Mauritius in January to celebrate Alex’s success – but are now back hard to work, travelling around the UK on the X Factor Live tour.

A source on the tour told the Sun that life on the road has caused tensions in the women’s friendships – which came to a boil in Sheffield last week: “Alex and Ruth are big characters and the fireworks were spectacular when they finally went off.   “Ruth claims they fell out because she pulled a dancer Alex had her eye on. She reckons Alex bullied her but the old green-eyed monster has been creeping in.   “Meanwhile Alex feels she is being singled out by Ruth and the others on tour because of her success. She insists she was never after any dancer – she doesn’t think that would be very cool. She thinks Ruth is just using it as a excuse to pick on her.   “But either way their friendship is well and truly over. They can barely look at each other.  “Both have threatened to leave unless the other is booted off the tour.”

Watch this space….Diva Ruth or Diva Alex….who will win……?

Has Claire Richards starting munching once again?

Has Steps Claire Richards fallen off the diet wagon already?

Several months ago she hit the press with her DVD and diet plan and then looked slim and healthy and now she is looking curvier – has she or has she not ?  What do you think?

Claire Richards, seen here at the TRIC awards with actresses Daniella Westbrook – with a nose job!!!!! (L) and Adele Silva, appears to let her diet and fitness regime slip

Claire Richards

The 31-year-old stepped out in a figure-hugging, Victoria Beckham style, little black dress today at the Television and Radio Industries Club (TRIC) awards ceremony in London.

However, the slimline shape of the outfit could not hide the re-emergence of a distinctly rounder-looking stomach compared to pictures released a few months ago to accompany her high-profile DVD launch.

Now and a few months ago…Has she or not ??????
But at the end of the day she still looks better than she did and looks good in her dress don’t knock her that’s what I say!

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.

Before and after and……

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.
