Nadine Elizabeth Louise Coyle is an Irish singer for the pop group Girls Aloud. She was born to Lillian and Niall Coyle, with two sisters, Charmaine and Rachael.

‘My first work out was a disaster. I’d never been to a gym before’

Nadine Coyle thought her slim frame was with her for life – until her clothes didn’t fit her any more. ‘I thought I was invincible. I thought I had hollow legs,’ grins Nadine, whose legs were voted the sexiest in Ireland in 2003.

‘Then suddenly my jeans didn’t even need a belt. I didn’t think I was fat, but I knew I wasn’t toned. ‘The extra weight all went to my boobs. They went from a C-cup to a D-cup and I hated it. Then my love handles started to appear. My heaviest was 8st 3lb. It’s embarrassing because I’m 5ft 5in and I don’t think it’s that bad. But I wasn’t toned.

In January Nadine, 21, decided to join a gym. I’d never been to one before and I wanted to see what it was like to break out in a sweat. Just for once I’d like to get through a fitness video from beginning to end, rather than pass out halfway through.

‘My first workout was a disaster. Our trainer Nigel couldn’t believe how unfit I was. He took my pulse on the running machine and it was going so fast for such little work, it was a disgrace. After that I went twice a week. As a group we’d all go swimming and do cross-country walks together. Then the next day we’d be sitting in the studio moaning about how sore we all felt.

‘The weight dropped off my chest, but what helped me more than anything was eating less crap. Because of all the touring we do, our diets were all over the place. We all love junk food and we were all happy eating that rubbish.

‘I’d go for a takeaway egg muffin breakfast, lunch would be more fast food and then all day we’d be snacking on croissants and sweets. When I got home I’d have another takeaway.

‘Now I try to just have three meals a day. For breakfast I think you can have whatever you want – I don’t think you should stick to rabbit food all day, plus you’ve got all day to burn it off. But now we have salads for lunch and dinner is grilled chicken.

‘Now I’m not even 8st – I weigh 7st 10lb. But I still want to look like a girl and keep my curves.

And it seems highly likely that Nadine will. Her favourite dish is mashed potatoes and chips – together. ‘Is that bad?’ she asks. ‘Its been a big enough shock for me finding out that people don’t eat chips every day!’
