Last year, Fran was subjected to cruel body-shaming comments after gaining weight during lockdown.
The former TOWIE star made an on-screen comeback to the Brentwood-based show in September 2020, as she came face-to-face with her ex boyfriend James ‘Diags’ Bennewith for the first time in 12 months.
After returning to the show, the star revealed she received some nasty jibes about her new figure, having gained weight during the lockdown earlier that year.
The following month, Fran shared a glamourous snap of herself on Instagram and revealed she had lost 10 pounds since her TOWIE comeback.
“10 pounds down in weight and 10 years of @towie so why not celebrate with a selfie,” the star captioned the social media update.
The Essex babe has now lost over two stone in total.
Pal James has also lost a considerable amount of weight after changing his life style.
The aspiring singer has dropped 9.5 stone since undergoing life-saving gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year.
The star – who once weight 27 stone – opened up about his fitness journey on Steph’s Packed Lunch in June.
“It felt horrible, I was always extremely uncomfortable, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror,” the star said of his old body on the Channel 4 show.
“It felt depressing and it just wasn’t me. Now I’m starting to feel like myself again and I’m excited about what the future is going to bring.”
The star – who once dated former co-star Gemma Collins – added: “It was scary being 27 stone… It was serious, doctors were telling me how dangerous it was… I knew it was something I had to address pretty quickly.”
