She has lost at least 20lbs in weight since competing in Dancing With The Stars.

And Katherine Jenkins today showed the positive effects of the gruelling rehearsal schedule for the U.S. TV show.

The 31-year-old classical singer displayed her toned legs in a pair of ultra short floral shorts as she arrived for a TV appearance in Los Angeles today.
