'I'm a size six again!' Heidi Range shows off her newly-svelte figure in a skintight catsuit after losing a stone on Dancing On Ice
She had said previously that one of the main reasons she had decided to take part in Dancing On Ice was to lose weight.
And now Sugababes singer Heidi Range has expressed her delight after the ITV talent show helped her slim back down to a size six.
Heidi spoke about her weight loss as she showed off her newly-svelte figure in a skintight gold catsuit as she paid tribute to James Bond movie Goldfinger on yesterday's Movie Night show.

Slimming down: The 28-year-old singer has lost a stone since she began on Dancing On Ice last year
The 28-year-old singer, who has shed a
stone since starting on Dancing On Ice, said: 'The weight loss has been
brilliant. I was just over eight-and-a-half stone before I started.
I've always had to work really hard on my figure. I guess I've been
stressed over the past few months too – lots of things have added to the
'But I'm thinking the world is my oyster right now. The show has been brilliant – it has given me my confidence back.'
And Heidi's confidence was certainly clear to see as she took to the ice with partner Andrei Lipanov to the soundtrack of Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger.
Secretary chic: Jorgie Porter performed to Dolly Parton hit 9 to 5, tying with Matthew Wolfenden to get 21.5
However, Heidi wasn't the only star to impress the judges with both her skating skills and her costume last night.
Hollyoaks starlet Jorgie Porter was dressed in a quirky secretary outfit, showing off
her slender figure in a blue mini skirt and short-sleeve polka dot
Despite struggling with a certain
lift in rehearsal, where Matt thrusts Jorgie into the air and perches
her bottom on the palm of his hand, the couple nailed their number.
Referring to the correct execution of the lift, Jorgie said: 'I think I was saved by my knickers.'

of his partner, Matt said: 'I have to thank Jayne and Chris for giving
me my ultimate fantasy and skating with a secretary.'
Spence praised the pair, saying: 'It was fast, fun and fabulous! It was
jam-packed with choreography. It was so complete, I don't know where
we're going to go with you'
Joint first: Matthew Wolfenden and Nina Ulanova scored the same as Jorgie and Matt with Night Fever
Natural strength: Matthew lifted partner Nina with grace – unlike in rehearsals where they struggled

making her level pegging with Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden on the

production of Saturday Night Fever for a year.
Conservative: It wasn't long before the glasses were thrown off and the hair was tumbling everywhere
Practice makes perfect: Jorgie fell several times in rehearsal before nailing the move
The couple had also been struggling with a particular lift, in which Matthew flips Nina upside down.
He said: 'I was very nervous, but it (the lift) was right at the beginning, so we got it out the way.'
Robin Cousins, who awarded them an 8, said: 'If
you cut the camera view off above the knee, you couldn't tell which
feet belonged to the celebrity and which to the professional.'
Getting into character: Nina had never seen Saturday Night Fever, so Matthew took her to a Seventies night
Meanwhile, Katarina went a little red saying he looked sexy, but Louie said it lacked spark.
Despite Corey Feldman landing at the
bottom of the scoreboard with 8, it was Mark Rhodes who was voted off
the show after ending up in the skate-off with Charlene Tilton.
