X Factor star Honey G has confessed she's feeling "sexier than ever" as she continues to turn heads with her epic two stone weight loss.
The 39-year-old, who made headlines with her rapping during 2016's X Factor, has completely overhauled her lifestyle as she took up gruelling triathlons and calming yoga.
And Honey – real name Anna Gilford – has shed nearly two stone, and dropped from a size 16/18 down to a size 12.
Showing off her toned body in the gym as she posed for Closer, Honey opted for a tight blue tank top and black leggings that hug her figure.

"For the first time in ages, I’ve been able to buy clothes that are considered sexy, like leather trousers and lacy tops, which I’d never have worn before."
The star admitted her weight loss results have made her feel like the "old" her again, after admitting to having a flat stomach in her 20s.
