Ferne McCann's bikini body secrets revealed, including a 'drastically smaller' alcohol intake and playing netball

The ex-TOWIE star put her impressive figure on display as she soaked up the sun in Dubai yesterday – and now we can reveal her health and fitness secrets.

Ferne – who's gone from a size 12 to an eight – launched her fitness DVD Fit As Ferne this week, which includes seven high-intensity workouts created with her trainer Ellie Hopley.

While Ferne has kept her fans up-to-date with her health and fitness journey on Instagram, this is the first time her followers have had access to her exact workout routines.

She told The Sun Online earlier this month: "Ellie and I have been working together since I had my daughter Sunday last year and it's this workout that has got me into the best shape that I've ever been in."

"Each section is designed to get your heart pumping and your body sweating."

According to snaps on her Instagram page, the DVD will include lots of planking and floor work.

Ferne continues: "There's even a HIIT section which will get you fitter faster and help you burn calories even after you've finished your workout."

The mum-of-one has also revealed that she's overhauled her eating habits and cut down on her alcohol intake, adding: "I eat organic food and cook myself so I know what's in my meals.

"My alcohol intake is drastically smaller. I still have a takeaway and a glass of prosecco – you have to live a little – but I just have these treats in moderation."

Ferne told Lorraine in December 2017 that she hadn't been to the gym since giving birth a month earlier, but was pictured back for the first time in January.

She'd previously said that she enjoys playing team sports, such as badminton and netball.

The mum-of-one also said she'd lost weight by breastfeeding.

In February, she revealed that she'd undertaken the 30 Day Challenge – where you avoid junk and processed foods.

While she's clearly focused on her fitness, Ferne has said that she's "never owned scales" and that her weight loss is "about how I feel not how I look".

She said: "This hasn't come easily. I've worked and trained really hard and I don't have any shame saying that.

"I didn't put too much pressure on myself. I think that was the secret. I always want to run before I can walk and I want everything right now.

"But pregnancy taught me to be more patient, just to relax and go with it. And once you change your mindset, it's definitely more achievable."
