She told new! Magazine: ‘I’m not the smallest I’ve ever been, but am at a happy weight where I feel OK getting into a bikini or a costume in the swimming pool. I’m in a happy and confident place.
‘I am about 10¾st at the moment. I don’t feel I’m in that rat race anymore of having to look amazing. I’ve stopped trying to diet.
‘When you do faddy diets they don’t work, so I’ve given up. My weight has gone up and down so much over the years so I just try to eat healthily now.’

Jennifer told the publication about losing her confidence after gradually gaining weight and going up to a size 18.
She recalled: ‘My agent would phone me up, and the thought of going for an audition… I would refuse. I’d say ‘I can’t do it’. I had lost my confidence. I had literally given up on myself’.
Last year, Jennifer revealed she had ‘given up’ on herself before doing Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
She said: ‘I’d given up on myself. I never looked in the mirror.
‘I didn’t think I could ever go back on stage because no one would want me. I had gone from being this girl known for acting and men’s mags to becoming this mum and teacher.’
Jennifer was one of 14 celebs who took part in the gruelling reality show, which was filmed in the Middle East at a military base in Wadi Rum, Jordan, where she broke two of her ribs.
Jennifer soared to fame on Brookside in 1998, on which she played Emily Shadwick until 2003. During this stint she became a lads’ mag favourite.

She shares her three children Bobby, Harrison, and Charlie with husband Rob Tickle, who she married in October 2009.
The star, who later launched TV show Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison in 2014, has always been candid about her struggles with weight and most recently she discussed the horror she felt at hitting a size 18.
Jennifer previously admitted during an appearance on Loose Women: ‘I was getting anxiety about seeing people from my past because I thought they were looking at me thinking what the hell happened to you?
‘People in the shops would be like, “God girl, you’ve piled on the weight haven’t you!” I was size 18 in self destruct mode. I wouldn’t look in the mirror, I didn’t care. Everything was about my (sons).’
She decided to take drastic action, checking into a detox centre where she was rationed to a tiny 400 calories a day.
Jennifer added: ‘I’d have a slice of apple and a six mile walk and get back starving. I was told the perfect analogy for me about wanting to help your boy’s – like when you have to put on a flight oxygen mask, you have to put yours on first.
‘In order to be good mum to them you have to look after yourself. With me it was self-neglect, everything was about the boys.’
