ABBEY Clancy does “zero exercise”. The ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ champion – who has three-year-old daughter Sophia Ruby with husband Peter Crouch – claims she doesn’t have to work out a lot to maintain her enviable figure but admits she’s been taking yoga classes since becoming pregnant with their second child.
Quizzed on the secrets behind her bikini body, she said: “Zero exercise. Everyone in my family is slim and tall. My mother bounced back after kids, my brother’s skinny – so I think my genes are a huge part of it.
“When I did Strictly, it didn’t feel like exercise but it was super intense, and I saw my body really change – I lost my boobs completely. But now I’ve gone back to nothing, and a more flabby body.”
The 29-year-old beauty confessed that along with no exercising – apart from pregnancy yoga to strengthen her “pelvic floor and lower back” before the baby arrives – she also has no rules about what she can and can’t eat.
She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: “I live with a footballer, so we tend to eat healthily. But I’m so relaxed about it – we don’t deny ourselves of anything. If I want a Chinese or a McDonald’s, I’ll have one.”
Abbey – who is the face of Avon’s new fragrance ‘Cherish’ – has a number of beauty products she swears by, including Avon’s Ultra Colour Lipsticks in Nude, SuperShock Gel Eyeliner and Skin So Soft Dry Oil.
She added: “I love Charlotte Tilbury’s foundation in Light Wonder, number six. It’s so sheer but still gives good coverage. I love Bare Minerals concealer, and I can’t live without LancÃ´me mascara … I love all my lotions and potions and I’m lucky to be sent lots of things, but the truth is I’ve used the same stuff for years really.” â€“ Bang Media
