The musician – whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford – transformed her figure after dropping from a size 18 to a jaw-dropping size 12 during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The reality star, who soared to fame in 2016, told in a recent interview that she can now wear clothes she ‘wouldn’t have dreamt of wearing’ previously, and even now enjoys wearing sexy lingerie.

She explained: ‘I used to wear loose and baggy clothes that went up to a size 18, but I’ve thrown most of them away as my taste has matured. Now I wear outfits I wouldn’t have dreamt of wearing, and I can fit into nice underwear from Victoria’s Secret.

Last year, Honey G showed off her new look after completing a charity triathlon, and admitted she’d done more exercise in lockdown than she had ‘in her whole life.’

She shared a glimpse of her new physique in a skintight leotard after completing a triathlon, which consisted of a 750m swim, 20km cycle and a 5km run.

She told The Daily Star that after struggling to commit to a diet, she decided to overhaul her fitness regime during lockdown after failing to maintain her previous weight loss.

Honey has embraced virtual spinning classes, running and open-water swimming sessions to help her shed two stone, along with Hatha Yoga classes.

She explained: ‘Lockdown has proved to me that doing lots of exercise can make you lose weight.

‘I went to see a top obesity specialist and a dietician in the past and I was trying to lose weight by changing my diet but during lockdown I combined changing my diet and doing a large amount of exercise.

‘I’ve been probably doing more exercise in lockdown than I have in my whole life.’
