Adele, Emily Atack and Chloe Ferry have shed serious weight during lockdown – how celebs are toning up without the gym

IF THERE'S one thing lockdown has taught us, it's that you don't need a pricey gym membership to help you slim down.

Now, as a host of stars – including Adele, Emily Atack, Chloe Ferry and Zara McDermott – reveal healthy fat loss during the coronavirus pandemic, we take a look at how they upped their fitness levels and gave their meals a nourishing upgrade.

From Joe Wick's HIIT classes to 5k runs, there's been no shortage of ways to exercise at home and in your local area for free the last two months, and chefs have also been offering plenty of helpful tips on how to eat well on a budget.

But forget us mere mortals, how have the famous been getting in shape with expensive personal trainers and luxury fitness studios out of bounds?

Emily Atack

The actress and presenter, 30, revealed late last month she had shed one stone in three months.

She revealed that her weight loss had been down to nutritious home cooking – and she has shared dozens of delicious-looking fresh dishes with her 1.7m followers on Instagram.

Since lockdown began, the self-isolating star – who last year revealed she weighed eleven stone – has also frequently shared video clips on social media of her wearing gym kit for walks in her local area.


The 32-year-old singer's health kick has seen her shift a reported seven stone over five years.

But much of her safely-achieved weight loss – which she recently unveiled in an Instagram post to her 37.1m followers – has been achieved at home.

Yesterday, she was spotted driving to her LA gym, but in the early stages – back in 2015 – she first made tweaks to her diet, something which experts agree is key for sustainable slimming.

In January, her former Pilates teacher, Camila Goodis, told the Lorraine show that: "She’s working out, but I think 90 per cent of it is diet."

According to The Times, the singer has been following the Sirtfood diet.

They also report that she was a fan of home workouts long the current pandemic – and was an early adopter of Joe Wicks' training plans.

Chloe Ferry

Similarly, earlier this week, the Geordie Shore star, 24, revealed that she had trimmed down by two stone in a year – and has shed a further five pounds on a lockdown health kick.

In a post on Instagram showing her body transformation, the reality TV favourite told her 3.4m followers that a bout of low self-esteem prompted her to start going to the gym, something which was also "good" for her mind.

Since the pandemic began, she has been eating a high-protein breakfast and doing home workouts with a resistance band.

Zara McDermott

The former Love Island star turned Made In Chelsea regular, 23, has also unveiled a two stone weight loss since last August.

In a post on Instagram, she showed before and after body transformation photos, to the amazement of her 1.4m fans.

Zara explained she had cut out junk food – including her beloved chocolate milkshakes – and started exercising more.

In lockdown, she has been maintaining her new trimmer figure with 10km runs and workouts lead by her boyfriend Sam's sister Louise Thompson, as well as consuming plenty of plant-based meals.

Sophie Kasaei

Like her Geordie Shore co-star Chloe, reality TV favourite Sophie, 30, has also reported weight loss during two months in lockdown.

She exclusively told Fabulous that she has lost ten pounds after ditching takeaways in favour of healthy home-cooked meals and doingmorning workouts with her dad.

Sophie said: "I’ve lost about ten pounds during lockdown – that’s in two months, so a pound a week.

"That’s just because I’m not eating takeaways and I’m not travelling up and down the country for work, stopping at services for meals. I’ve been cooking really healthy meals for myself.

“When I get up, I workout straightaway with my dad for an hour, because that makes me feel great. Then I’ll have brunch with my dad and get a few jobs done, walk the dog.

“My diet has been so good during lockdown, I’ve been able to eat healthy meals and not eat out. Even though it’s a s*** situation, I’ve really been enjoying having the time off.”

Jesy Nelson

The Little Mix singer, 28, has been showing off her toned figure to her 6.8m followers on Instagram in lockdown, during which she has been enjoying going for strolls in the woods.

In an interview with The Guardian last year, she previously revealed how she was engaged in unhealthy eating habits during the early days of her fame.

Jesy explained: "I’d drink Diet Coke for a solid four days and then, when I felt a bit dizzy, I’d eat a pack of ham because I knew it had no calories. Then I’d binge eat, then hate myself.”

However, in late March of this year, when commenting on her abs in an Instagram post to her 6.8m fans, she revealed that she was much more comfortable in her own skin and had been enjoying both chocolate and the gym.

Last year, told Glamour magazine: “When I start feeling rank, when I know I’ve indulged too much, then I start exercising.

"We love our junk food as well. Boxing is my absolute favourite, I love it because it makes me feel like I'm not exercising.”
