X Factor’s Emma Chawner shows off 13 stone weight loss

Emma Chawner showed off her staggering 13 stone weight loss on Thursday’s episode of Lorraine.

The aspiring singer, 30, who was previously 28 stone when she appeared on The X Factor in 2007, looked incredible as she unveiled her slimmer frame.  

During the interview, Emma insisted that she hasn’t had a gastric band fitted and has lost the weight all by herself with a healthy diet over the last three years.

The child minder admitted that she is happy with the way she is but wants to get down to her goal weight of 12 stone.

Emma told host Lorraine Kelly: ‘Three years to lose the weight, I’ve lost 13 stone in total.

‘I’ve done it all myself this time, no one has pushed me to do it. I wasn’t healthy, always out of breath, asthma got worse and I ended up diabetic as well.’

Emma credited her work as a child minder, which she has done for eight years, for helping to keep the weight off as well as a healthy diet.

She said: ‘I do about six miles every weekend with all the kids, helps keeping it off.’

Emma continued: ‘It’s all about mindset. I’ve cut out potatoes, pasta and rice, changed it to vegetables. Portion sizes as well, always portion sizes. 

‘I can’t stay still now, even though I’ve got a fractured foot!’

'Wasn't healthy': Emma told host Lorraine Kelly: 'Three years to lose the weight, I've lost 13 stone in total. I've done it all myself this time, no one has pushed me to do it. I wasn't healthy, always out of breath, asthma got worse and I ended up diabetic as well.' (pictured in 2009)

The former contestant admitted that the stress of her parents – Philip, 63, and Audrey, 67 – breaking up and losing her dog inspired her to lose weight. 

Emma also insisted that she has lost the weight through hard work and not via a gastric band, despite trolls claiming so.

She said: ‘[Trolls says] “Oh you’ve lost weight, you’ve had a gastric band,” I’ve done it all myself.

‘I’ve still got a bit to go, I want to get down to 12 stone at least.’

Emma went on to talk about her sister Sam, 31, the two auditioned on The X Factor in 2009 as Sister Act, and admitted that she still has ‘weight issues’ after previously disclosing she is 30 stone.

She said: ‘She’s doing OK, weight issues are still happening there, I have asked her to do what I’m doing, it’s all mindset. I can’t help her. One day it will hit her.’

Emma was targeted by cruel trolls for her weight while appearing on the popular singing competition in 2007.

During her second appearance on the ITV talent show in 2009, Emma was slammed as ‘a flump’ by show boss, Simon Cowell and revealed that while she had previously received criticism for her weight, the show made it worse.  

A year after her sting on The X Factor, the overweight star appeared on Lorraine Kelly’s Big Fat Challenge alongside her parents Philip, 63, and Audrey, 67 and her sister Sam, 31, in 2010. 

Emma admitted that the trolling she received was ‘cruel’, she added: ‘I had good and bad from that show. We did a show with you, lost weight, but then had death threats and bullying online.’

Talking about how she dealt with the abuse, she continued: ‘I just spoke to family and friends, they said just ignore them, and block them, don’t read message and just block them.’

Emma revealed she had no idea she would be trolled for her audition as she was only 17-years-old. 

She said: ‘No, I didn’t, I was so young, I wanted to do The X Factor, I thought it would be a good outcome, turned out the other way. I was 17 when I auditioned.’ 

Talking about whether she wanted to still be a singer, Emma added: ‘I do, but I don’t think I’ll go down this road, I still sing in the shower and in the car.’

Lorraine asked Emma to give some advice to herself on The X Factor aged 17, to which she revealed: ‘I don’t know, I’m happy the way I am now and not long to go.’

Lorraine continues on weekdays at 9am on ITV.
