Saucy: For 2022, it’s our tastebuds that Kelly Brook will be teasing as she stars in her first ever ‘Seasonal Sensations’ cookery calendar

Kelly poses up a storm in the glamorous shots alongside seasonal recipes hand-picked by the brunette beauty. 

Kelly admitted: ‘Most people – myself included – tend to have a few extra pounds to lose in January…. Who doesn’t like to let themselves go a bit over the Christmas party season?

‘With so many struggling to stay motivated and with lots of people believing the only way to lose weight is to deny themselves real food – I thought it was time to show people that you can cook and eat delicious seasonal recipes and still lose or maintain a healthy weight with SlimFast.’  

Sultry: It marks a change from her past pin up calendars where she stripped down to her lingerie 

She added: ‘I hope my new cookery ‘pin up’ calendar helps people feel more fired up and motivated about their health and wellbeing resolutions and inspires people to give them a go and see what they can achieve!’

Kelly recently spoke about her weight in MailOnline in a candid interview, where she said she ’embraces her bigger size’.

She said: ‘I finished my show (American sitcom One Big Happy) in LA. I was super fit and then I moved back here four years ago to the countryside, to my farm in Kent, and I stopped thinking about what I looked like.

‘I started living what I call my ‘Ma Larkin life’. I had ducks, beehives, I was cooking every day — huge roast dinners — and going to the pub and I really piled on the pounds. It didn’t help that I was also living with an Italian for whom food is religion.’

She was approached by SlimFast and with the help of their shakes and snack bars, managed to lose 21 lb.

But then lockdown hit, comfort eating kicked in and the weight crept back on.

‘Few extra pounds’: Kelly said: ‘Most people – myself included – tend to have a few extra pounds to lose in January…. Who doesn’t like to let themselves go a bit over the Christmas party season?

‘In lockdown I went a little crazy,’ she laughed. ‘I bought a pizza oven, and we did Friday night fakeaways where I made doner kebabs. I even bought an ice cream machine for goodness sake and started churning my own. During lockdown I went to the fridge more than I should have done and I put a lot back on.’

‘I’ve never hated who I am, and I do embrace my bigger size. I don’t want to be like I was in my 20s — I couldn’t if I tried, my metabolism has slowed right down — but I’m also aware things can get out of hand and I do have that body type where I can gain weight quickly.’

‘If I don’t watch it then I creep up to a size 14 or 16, but a size 10 to 12 is where I feel my happiest. My boobs get too big when I’m edging up to a size 16.’
