Even though she often proudly frames her assets in some swimwear and shows off her impressively flat stomach on the beach while on holiday, the star, 25, admits she cringed when she heard she was awarded Cleavage Of The Year by The Sun earlier this year. She told new! magazine: “It was a bit embarrassing. It is also flattering. The thing is, I don’t wear tops that show them off much… Mum laughed and said, ‘You don’t get that from me, girl.’ [My parents] think it’s funny and Mum jokes about it a lot.”
And the star, who admits she doesn’t understand the reasons why she’s seen as a sex symbol by many, claims she doesn’t watch her diet like some sort of health hawk despite having an enviable figure. She said: “I tend to go through stages of eating rubbish, and then other times I eat very healthily… It’s weird with me. A few months ago, I put on weight without knowing it. I think it was because I wasn’t going to the gym. I started going out more and I think, as you get older, you have to watch what you eat more. You have to keep on top of it.”
Meanwhile, Michelle claims she has chosen not to talk about her romance with Mark Wright as they both want to keep their lives private which is strange considering Mark put himself through a number of seasons of TOWIE, laid himself bare for a stint in the I’m A Celeb jungle and likes to pose in his underwear. And although Michelle is happy with Mark, she doesn’t see herself starting a family any time soon. When asked if she’d like children, she said: “Oh goodness, not now! I’m waiting, especially as I know that when a real baby does come along, it’ll be hard work.” Read the full story in this week’s new! magazine – out today.
