She's had a well publicised struggle with her body image and has spoken openly about being bullied in the past.
But Jodie Marsh seems to have found her ideal shape after taking up body building to bulk up in ways other women would run a mile from.
Her tremendous toned physique has even landed her second bodybuilding TV series which sees the 33-year-old former glamour model compete stateside.

She certainly stands out from the crowd: Her flame red hair, barely there clothes, turbo tanned body and in-your-face tattoos guarantee you can't miss Jodie
Her first bodybuilding series aired on Discovery's DMAX channel in January this year and was such a success they've made a second show.
The follow-up series, aptly named Jodie Marsh - Brawn In The USA, will follow Essex girl Jodie as she competes across the pond.
Featuring in the series will be Britain's Got Talent contestants Twist and Pulse who provided choreography for Jodie's US takeover.
