The 35-year-old showcased her washboard abs while proudly revealing a new scar across her lower abdomen, which appeared to be a result of recent skin removal surgery.
The Big Brother star, who has been very open about her battle with her weight, previously went under the knife for a gastric operation in 2020 which saw her drop from a size 18 to a size 10.
After tipping the scales at 17 stone, the star revealed the operation was a ‘last resort’ after a lifelong battle with her weight.
Chanelle had recently told OK! Magazine that as a result of the further weight loss she now has loose skin which she finds ‘ageing.’

In an interview with the magazine in January, Chanelle said ‘I’ve got more loose skin, so while I still feel a million times better than I did when I was unhealthy, I’m now thinking, ‘Maybe I want to do something about this,’ so I’m considering a tummy tuck.’
She also revealed at the time that she was unhappy with her breasts and was planning on having her implants removed and booking in for a boob lift.
She explained her weight loss caused her breasts to be disfigured, leaving her looking like she had ‘four boobs’.
‘I’d have my implants removed or perhaps switched to smaller ones. The surgeon would have to remove all the loose skin and put it back up where it meets in the middle. My nipples are doing more hanging out with my knees at the moment than my chest, so it’ll be nice to be reunited with them!’
It is unknown whether the star has undergone the boob lift, however the star looked amazing as she proudly showed off the scar from her tummy tuck.
Chanelle has openly discussed her weight loss and battle with binge eating disorder, stating that her gastric sleeve operation in August 2020 was ‘the best thing ever’ as she dropped from 17st4lb to 9st5lb.
The star reportedly now weighs 8st, but is candid with her followers about how she still has good day and bad days with her attitude to food.
Posting on Instagram in June the star confessed that she still struggles with her mindset to food and had had a bad day and was left ‘feeling disgusted’ with herself and that she was snacking while typing the post, despite already feeling ‘full.’

Raising awareness with her fans, Chanelle posted a before and after picture of herself before writing ‘Trigger Warning!!!!!!’ and diving into her post.
She wrote: ‘Had a bad day today with my eating. I know many of you follow me because of my weight loss journey and disordered eating so I don’t want to hide that I’ve had a mare of a day when it comes to moderation. I’ve binged all day long on everything you can think of.’
She continued: ‘Right now I’m feeling disgusted at myself, guilty, out of control, poorly, uncomfortable and angry. But I need to remember this is normal. I can’t just “cure” binge eating disorder with weight loss surgery.
Learning to cope with her battles, the star went on to describe how she was going to practice some of the CBT exercises she had been taught to regain control of her actions and remind herself that tomorrow is a new day and there is no need to restrict food.

‘Hopefully this will help mix up your feed with a bit of realness!!’ she wrote.
