What would you say about your appearance prior to the makeover?

Personally – I felt bland, frumpy, boring, black – lots of black, if not ALL in black ALL the time – I just felt insignificant and uninteresting!

What was the best part of the makeover?

Meeting Trinny & Susannah, making new friends, being pampered and being told things you’d either never heard or never believed, like you had “great f***ing legs”! And the shoes… trying on all the beautiful SHOES!

What was the worst part of the makeover?

For me, as I think I was the only one, was being filmed in my undies – I felt very exposed and vulnerable, embarrassed and felt like crying – I hated what I saw in the mirror.

What was the best advice Trinny & Susannah gave you?

To not be scared of colour and to embrace my shape – I was told that I had great legs, great t*ts and that I was attractive – things your loved ones tell you but you don’t believe them because they wouldn’t tell you the truth anyway – if a stranger tells you, you’re more inclined to believe them.

How has the makeover changed your life?

I am wearing more colour, and more figure hugging clothes, I am embracing my shape, my height and my best assets which are all hidden away under shapeless black clothes for far too long!
