Anne Hegerty has opened up about how her weight loss has boosted her confidence and how it was important to her when it came to dating again. The Chase star revealed that dating with her diagnosis of Aspergers syndrome has been a struggle in the past for her. However, her weight loss has helped her build the confidence to enter the dating scene again.
Anne also went on to appear in Im a CelebrityGet Me Out of Here! where campmates eat a basic diet of rice and beans.
Campmates are able to win a more luxurious meal for the camp undertaking bush tucker trials but the amount of food they receive depends on how many stars were retrieved during the trials.
She said that this experience really helped her lose weight where she lost a stone in just three weeks.
Appearing on ITVs This Morning, Anne told Philip Schofield and Rochelle Humes that she believes the lack of salt in her diet on the show helped to kick off her weight.

The shows challenges involved competing for food, and many contestants on the show lose a huge amount of weight due to the limited amount of food.
A source told The Sun: What the celebs are eating is very healthy.
From veg to meat protein and fish and that is absorbed quickly by the body. The weight loss doesnt do any permanent damage, and most pile it back on within three weeks.
The celebs see it as a detox, although at the same time it is very difficult as they have nothing to distract them from the hunger.

The star also spoke to Jeremy Vine in 2019 about her weight and said that she is not unhealthy.
She told him: I do not have big bones. I do not have a glandular issue. Im fat because I eat enormously. Thats why. And I love cake, its brilliant.
However, The Governess has managed to keep the weight off she lost on Im A Celeb and has since spoken out about how she has managed to build her confidence and start dating again.
Anne was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome when she was 44 and has found it hard to enter any relationships.
She said: It took years of psychotherapy before I even considered dating.
I lost weight, replaced my glasses with contact lenses and felt a lot more confident. But I find it really hard to hold down a relationship.
Another TV star who has impressed many with his weight loss is The Beast, also from The Chase.

After Kate left the jungle she told The Mirror: They weigh you before you go in and they weigh you when you come out and Ive lost a stoneI was really eating in there as well, so rice and beans is kind of the way to go.
