In February 2015, Michelle candidly revealed to MailOnline how she previously ballooned to a size 22, and at one point weighed in at almost 18 stone.

She explained how that in 2002 she worked herself to the point of exhaustion to save her company, working late and getting up at 4.30am before getting her children ready for school. 

She admitted: ‘To cope with the stress and exhaustion, I began binge eating. At my worst, I was putting away four McDonald’s a day, 13 bags of crisps and bowls of chips, and 15 cans of fizzy drink.

‘I’d regularly send my PA out to the Chinese to get me chow mein with chips, eating everything on the plate until I felt I was going to burst.

‘Even as I was designing lingerie to help other women feel sexy and good about themselves, I ballooned from a size ten to a size 22.

‘My trousers had elasticated waistbands and my backside became so big I couldn’t fit into the pants I designed, buying them instead from Marks & Spencer.

‘When I see photos from that time, I don’t recognise myself. My eyes are sunk into a fat face, so swollen it looks as if someone had pumped me up like a tyre.

‘I’d hide doughnuts under the towels in the linen cupboard and stash sweets in my wardrobe.’
