Josie Gibson has transformed her life since slimming from a size 20 to a toned, tanned size 8.

Her DVD 30 Second Slim has knocked Davina McCall's off the top of the charts and last week the Big Brother star modelled her new fashion range for Goddiva.

But she says her big fear is piling on the pounds again, admitting she's 'a bit of an addict' to daily workouts.

'I feel massive pressure to stay skinny,' says Josie, 28.

Someone who knows what that pressure is like is Steps star Claire Richards, 35.

She went from a size 20 to a size 10 and her fitness DVD 5 Step Fat Attack was a bestseller.

Now finally happy in her skin as a size 16, Claire says: ''I feel for Josie.

'The hardest part is keeping the weight off when the goal isn't there any more.

'Too much of my life has been consumed by yo-yo dieting, so I had to make a change.

'When you have a weight problem it's an addiction, in a way, to the way food makes you feel.'
