'I'm stuck in diet-binge hell': Imogen Thomas bemoans her 'fat' figure and admits she's become obsessed with her body

She has an enviable figure with curves in all the right places that some women would give anything to have.

But it would appear that Imogen Thomas is not happy with her lot, and has admitted that she's become 'obsessed' about her figure.

The glamour model revealed that she is not confident about her body but wants to stop getting upset about it and just be happy with what she has.

Speaking to Closer magazine, she said: 'People think I’m confident with my body,
but I’m not. I’m pushing a size 12, which I know isn’t fat, but it’s
more about how I feel about it. I think I’ve got fat hips and I’ve never
really been happy with my body. I’ve become obsessed.

'People say I’m silly for complaining
about my body, but they’re not in my head. I posted a photo on Twitter
of me in my underwear, saying I’d gained weight over Christmas and
couldn’t wait to lose it. Boy, did I get slated!

'Everyone said I was
attention-seeking and sending out the wrong message to young girls
because I already had a slim figure. I didn’t mean to upset anyone and I
apologise if I made anyone angry. I know I’ve got body issues.'

And she admitted that when people say horrible things about her, not only does it upset her but it plays on her insecurities.

She added: 'I take them to heart and it affects
my relationships. Nearly all my boyfriends have told me to stop
obsessing about my weight, but I can’t help it.

'I feel like I’ve been on a diet all my life. People say I’ve got a great body, but I’m stuck in binge-diet hell.'

Imogen also revealed that she was a young teenager when she started obsessing about her body and then developed alopecia due to stress.

She said: 'I started hating my body when I was 14
and a size 12-14 – I enjoyed my mum’s home-cooking and was eating the
wrong things. I lost weight by the time I was 17.

'When I was 10, I developed alopecia and
big clumps of my hair fell out. I had a lot of stress – my mum was a single parent and raised me and my sister on her own. My sister used to take over a lot and was very
demanding. Then my mum got a new boyfriend who
she’s still with now. We had to adapt.'

And Imogen also suffered for hair loss last year when her alleged affair with Ryan Giggs became public, and she said: 'It stressed me out and my hair is still a
bit thin.

'The alopecia went on for a few years and, whenever I’m
stressed like recently, it starts falling out again. I’m
terrified I’ll go bald.
