Frankie is looking incredibly trim and has showed off her impressive abs in a number of Instagram posts.

But the 29 year old has admitted she finds it hard to see the difference in her body.

The 5ft 7in star has dropped from 12st 8lbs to 10st 1lb.

But despite losing so much weight, Frankie Essex admits it’s “hard” for her to notice the difference.

“I must have a bit of body dysmorphia,” she told new! magazine.

“Even now, I’m like ‘Oh, I feel really bloated,’ and I get on the scales and I’m 10st 1lb, so I must have a bit of body dysmorphia.”
