Kate Silverton revealed an incredible fitness overhaul during her visit to This Morning.
Currently starring on Strictly Come Dancing, BBC newsreader Kate Silverton appeared on today’s edition of This Morning alongside her professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec to discuss all things ballroom.
Speaking with hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, 48-year-old Kate revealed she’s managed to shed TWO dress sizes throughout the fitness-intensive process!
“All these muscles that have been lying dormant so long have suddenly come back in and getting abs again and everything.
“I had to be remeasured. … I’ve gone down two dress sizes, [I’m] literally beside myself,” she said.
ate also lifted the lid on the Strictly experience as a whole, revealing it has been “addictive”.
“It is so addictive and so joyous. I would recommend it to everyone,” she said.
“Having started from absolute scratch, I’m actually feeling much more in my skin learning the steps and everything.
“I know I’m going to miss it literally the moment [it’s over],” Kate added.
Whilst Kate is loving the competition, she originally had to overcome a bout of ballroom jitters. By pretending to be someone else during the tense performances, Kate is able to “get over the nerves”.
“It helps you get over the nerves, if you are someone else, then it does feel as if it’s easier,” she explained.
Aljaz added: “If you give yourself a role to play you can hide behind it in a funny way.”
Kate has been documenting her Strictly experience online, sharing plenty of posts for Instagram followers.
Recently, she posed for a selfie with Aljaz -captioning the sweet snap: “Seriously …. how happy …. #tango @aljazskorjanec thank you x”
Fans were quick to share kind messages with the dancing duo.
“You are improving by leaps and bounds. Keep it up x,” said one.
Agreeing, another posted: “Completely radiates through the TV how much your loving the Strictly challenge Kate, keep up the amazing work.”
