The star went on: "I used to be Size 16 to 18 but I recently bought a pair of size 12 trousers which feels so good.

"The weight loss is making me feel better about myself and it's nice to wear something more revealing and sexy and know I can strut my thing."

Anna also admitted that she has been looking for love during the pandemic.

She said: "I have been dating during lockdown but I've not quite found what I'm looking for at the moment.

"I am of course looking for a woman who is attractive but also someone that I can have intelligent conversation with and share my sporting interests with too."

Last month, the rapper shared with Daily Star Online that her weight loss was due to training for a triathlon with intensive daily workouts, long runs, and hatha yoga.

She now plans to run a half marathon and to keep up her fitness and weight loss journey.
