Mone, who at her heaviest admits to having weighed almost 18 stone, has hired fitness guru Matt Roberts

Roberts' celebrity clients include model Naomi Campbell, Spice Girl Mel C, TV star Amanda Holden, all-girl pop group The Saturdays, comedian Michael McIntyre and actor James Corden.

Mone said: "My fitness is not great at the moment and I know Matt is going to work me hard and it will be tough, but I like setting myself challenges."
