Television personality Katie Hopkins has successfully completed her weight loss challenge as she warns that "chubsters" need a "kick up the arse"
Katie Hopkins has completed her weight loss challenge.
The television personality has successfully shed the flab which she purposefully gained as part of a televised health experiment called 'Katie Hopkins: My Fat Story' which is due to air on TLC in January.
The outspoken star took to her Twitter account to confirm the news as she rejoiced at the loss of her double chin.
She wrote: "Have shifted the weight and my four chins. Chubsters want hugs. But many need a kick up the arse instead. #noexcuses (sic)"
Katie - who rose to fame on the third series of 'The Apprentice' in 2006 - ate over 6,500 calories a day and gained four stone before losing it in a bid to prove that being overweight is a lifestyle choice.
Speaking on 'This Morning' in August, the 39-year-old star said: "Britain is eating its way to obesity and struggling to do anything about it. But in the vast majority of cases, the solution is simple.
"Overweight people should eat less and move more and stop blaming everyone else for problems they can control. To prove that losing weight is not as hard as some people make out, I'm going from underweight to overweight and back.
"I've now piled on three stone and more than doubled my body fat, which has been a struggle both physically and emotionally. I had seriously underestimated the emotional fallout of feeling overweight. The person I see in the mirror is a complete stranger to me."
