“It really was amazing, and it’s my followers that keep me motivated to do it more, because then they follow my journey.”

Tapper, 20, has struggled with her weight since she was a child and said she has tried lots of different diets in a bid to shed the extra pounds.

But she feels she has now succeeded as it was just the “the right time, the right age, my mind was exactly where it needed to be”.

The Celebs Go Skating star has been cheered on by fans since showing off her new look, with many saying she is an inspiration on their own weight loss journeys.

“Wow you honestly look amazing, such an inspiring person. You should be so proud,” one fan posted on Instagram.

“You look amazing! And the smile shows how proud you are of yourself! Love it!” said another.
