It’s been a crazy first week, but it’s the best craziness you can have because we’re helping these people change their lives. Seeing the other trainers was like going back to school – everyone looked fantastic, and as ripped as ever!
I was so nervous about having to eat like the contestants, but I knew it was important to understand where they were coming from, and the only way to do that was to feel as revolting as they make themselves feel every day. But it really did push my limits! It’s so exciting to have under-30s girls – they’re all around my age so I can relate to them.
There’s a little bit of girl power happening. These girls have been bullied their whole lives and have never treated themselves with respect, so it’s great to be their friend as well as their trainer.
It’s devastating hearing their stories – Kasey being told she was ugly every day at school, Michelle who’s never been kissed, Bek who’s desperate to have kids... it’s so heartbreaking!
