Katie Hopkins has so far put on three stone in a bid to prove that Britain's weight problems are self inflicted
Katie Hopkins has gained three stone for a television documentary.
The outspoken star has revealed she's been gorging on takeaways, ready meals and sweet treats while lazing around her house in a bid to prove that people with weight problems bring it on themselves.
She explained: "I'm filming a new documentary and I want to prove that if someone sits on their sofa all day eating rubbish, they will quickly become overweight.
"I also want to show that anyone can get down to a normal size just by eating less and moving more. So far I have eaten 13 ready meals a day. Chocolate bars, fizzy drinks, curries, chips, cream - I've scoffed it all."
The former 'The Apprentice' contestant - who is known for her on-screen rants on shows such as 'This Morning' - admits that while she thinks people are to blame for their own weight gain, she now understands why many overweight people are so unhappy.
Speaking in her column for The Sun newspaper, Katie said: "For my journey to fat and back I wanted to become like so many women I see. You get married - gain a stone. Have a baby - gain a stone. Have another baby - maybe gain a stone more ...
"But I have learned it is not easy being unhappy with your body. Watching yourself pile on the fat is hard for a woman to do. I'm now the biggest I've ever been.
"I am ashamed to be this big - the way nothing ever fits, the way you feel when people stare.
"Now I understand when women say they have nothing to wear - they really mean they don't feel good in anything."
'Katie Hopkins' Journey to Fat and Back' will air on TLC in January.
