Kelly Brook says she was 'miserable' skinny and is happiest with her curves now

Kelly Brook has said that she was "miserable" being skinny and she's the happiest she's ever been with her body now that she's married.

When she rose to fame as one of Britain's best-loved models in the nineties, Kelly often showed off her size 10 hourglass figure on the red carpet in barely-there dresses.

Her weight crept up over the years and in 2017 she was a size 16 but is now a happy and healthy size 12.

These days newlywed Kelly, 43, is happier than ever with her life and her figure.

And now she says looking back at pictures she admits she "can see the evidence of unhappy times" in her slimmer frame.

"As someone who has been pictured pretty much every day of their lives, I can see the evidence of unhappy times — I look at pictures and go, 'Oh, I was really skinny then', then remember it was because something had happened," Kelly tells The Sun.

"When you go through break-ups and things like that, it really impacts your diet, and some of my skinniest times were also some of my most miserable."

And Kelly says that marrying her fiancé Jeremy Parisi last year has made all the difference to her state of mind - and body confidence.

"It’s no coincidence I’m the happiest with my body now I’m married, I love my job, I love my colleagues, I’m older and everyone in my family seems to be healthy, touch wood," she said.

These days Kelly is kept busy on the airwaves six days a week co-presenting the Heart London drive show with Jason King and Feel Good Weekend show on Saturdays.

"Getting married changes everything. It’s so nice. I feel like we’re family, not just girlfriend and boyfriend," she said.

Kelly finally married her fiancé Jeremy Parisi after a seven year romance last summer.

The model, who met Frenchman Jeremy, five years her junior in 2015, went all out to make her big day unforgettable at the 19th century Villa Nota Pisani - which holds special memories from early on in their relationship.

Kelly wore a traditional lace gown for her nuptials completed with a stunning white veil.

Then the model had a few outfit changes as she slipped into a pair of white trousers before switching to a short blazer-style dress to get the party started at the reception.

After waiting for so long to get married, Kelly is thought to have splurged £500,000 on her dream wedding.

The couple were serenaded with 'That's Amore' as they swayed together at their stunning candlelit reception surrounded by red roses.

Kelly is thought to have went to town by hiring a funfair and inviting a whole host of celebrity A-list pals including singer Kylie Minogue.

Prior to meeting Jeremy, the former glamour model had been unlucky in love for a number of years.

She was previously engaged to actors Jason Statham and Billy Zane, as well as Gladiators star David 'Tornado' McIntosh.

The radio presenter was also the subject of high profile romances with rugby players Danny Cipriani and Thom Evans.
