The Geordie Shore cast is known and loved by TV viewers for a great many things: turbulent relationships, wild antics abroad, and outrageous flirting.
However, in more recent times, the female cast members have also gained notoriety for their incredible body transformations.
Indeed, Charlotte Crosby, Holly Hagan and Marnie Simpson (as well as former Geordie Vicky Pattison) have all shed a load of weight over the past 18months – something that prompted co-star Chloe Etherington to kick-start her own fitness programme.
The 20-year-old admits that she piled on 2st filming the as-yet unaired new series of the hit MTV reality show on the Greek party island of Zante.
Ms Etherington reveals she knocked back calorific cocktails and even scoffed pizzas topped with… spaghetti Bolognese!
Understandably, the combination was a diet disaster and earlier this summer she says she felt seriously self-conscious.
"I wasn't happy with my body after filming the new series," explains Chloe.
"I had a bit of a jelly belly and I had put on some weight around my hips. I wasn't comfortable at all showing off my body."
With Geordie Shore series 11 airing this autumn and a load of promotional gigs already lined up for it, Chloe seized her chance, embarking on a tough exercise and healthy eating schedule.
Today, she is down to 9st 7lbs from a high of 11st just six weeks ago.
"I feel confident about joining the other Geordie Shore girls on the beach. I like wearing the skimpiest bikinis you can find. I don't like tan lines!" she laughs.
And Ms Etherington admits that seeing her co-stars’ perfect figures provided all the motivation she needed.
"What I love about Charlotte, Holly and Marnie,” she explains, “is that they all look amazing but they still kept their curves and have a bust.
"I very much wanted to preserve my curves."
She adds: "I feel like I have my Goldilocks body now – not too fat, not too thin, just right!
"I didn't want to lose too much weight because if you get too skinny it starts coming off your bust.
"I'm very happy with with my 34C figure.”
Chloe also states that she embarked on her weight-loss and fitness regime with the help of Forza Supplements.
She ditched the fast food and cocktails and combined five work-outs a week with a personal trainer and a low-fat diet.
The Kylie Jenner look-alike recalls: "It's been six weeks of hell but I am really glad I did it.
"Now I've got the beach body I always wanted and I cannot wait to catch up with the other Geordie Shore girls and swap a few weight-loss tips."
In the past, Charlotte, 24, has lost 2st 7lbs – going down from a size 16 to a size 8 in just six months.
Holly, 22, shed even more weight – 3st – slimming down from a size 16 to size 10, and achieving her dream weight of 9st 10lbs.
And Marnie lost 17lbs in a just month after becoming fed up being branded the show's ‘fat lass’.
Chloe continues: "There is no magic formula to weight loss – you have to put in the hard graft.
"But I found that Forza's Raspberry K2s worked well with my new diet and exercise regime.
"They gave me more energy ahead of a work-out and accelerated my weight loss."
Chloe Etherington is a brand ambassador for Forza supplements' Raspberry K2 capsules which are available in Ireland at branches of Lloyds pharmacy.
