Kate Silverton has revealed she's lost an impressive two stone after doing gruelling home workouts during lockdown.
The BBC newsreader, 50, wanted to lose some weight before she celebrated her 50th birthday back in August.
She has been doing trampolining on a mini trampoline, cycling and Pilates, and has posted a video of herself swimming on Instagram.
