Who's that girl? Jodie Marsh showed off her amazing new look at a bodybuilding championships after just eight weeks of training
She was once famous for her curves, making a name for herself as one of the country's foremost glamour models.
And now Jodie Marsh's body is making the headlines once again - but for very different reasons.
The 32-year-old star was seen showing off her muscular new body as she entered the Natural Physique Association (NPA) Mike Williams Classic and Pro-Am Bodybuilding Championships last month.
Buff: The 32-year-old former glamour model has gone from a size 10 to a size six, and from 25 per cent body fat to 10 per cent body fat
Jodie looks completely unrecognisable after undertaking a gruelling diet and exercise regime which has seen her go from a size 10 to a tiny size six.
Talking about her new figure, Jodie said: 'This is the best I’ve ever felt, and the best my body has ever felt too.
'In just 50 days I have gone from 25 per cent body fat to 10 per cent body fat, gained 8 pounds of muscle, and lost 20 pounds of fat. In 8 weeks I have achieved what normally takes 6 to 9 months.'
Winner: Jodie came in fifth position in the Natural Physique Association (NPA) Mike Williams Classic and Pro-Am Bodybuilding Championships

And Jodie's new body, honed by personal trainer Tim Sharp, saw her come in fifth position in the world-famous championships in Sheffield.
She said: 'I’m really happy I’m going home with a trophy. If I can do this in eight weeks, competing against the best of the best in the UK, then what else can I achieve with more training time?
'I’m 100 per cent confident that if I had more time to train I could have placed in the top three and go through to finals. We’ll have to see what happens next year!'

Strict: The glamour model has been sticking to an intense diet and exercise regime to get in shape for the contest
Under the guidance of Sharp, Jodie's eight-week regime saw her sticking to an incredibly strict diet, as well as cutting out nightclubs and all alcohol.

She said: 'I started training with a personal trainer called Tim Sharp last December in my local gym.
Working it: Jodie says she has never felt better than she does now after working to get into shape
'At first, I just wanted to lose weight and tone up - I was soft all over. But within two weeks, I had definition in my stomach.
'As I saw my body changing, I really liked my muscles and as Tim is a bodybuilder, it just went from there. I feel a million dollars.
'I feel proud of myself. I've always been confident, but I've had moments where I haven't wanted people to see me naked.'
