Sophie Monk has opened up about the pressure to look a certain way, admitting she was once a "total exercise psycho".
The former Bardot singer said she used to have an unhealthy relationship with her body, attending the gym daily and constantly watching what she ate during her time in the girl band.
But those days are now long behind her, with the star telling news.com.au she has a more relaxed approach to her fitness – and has developed a recent taste for a budget servo snack during isolation.
Monk revealed she keeps on top of her diet by monitoring "the fit of my jeans" as well as maintaining regular yoga and stretching workouts.
She has also found dancing helps keep her fit, admitting she's been using the method a lot during this period of isolation, news.com.au reports.
"Dancing makes you sweat and gets you moving, and I think I am cool doing it," Monk said, admitting she hates exercise routines.
"I'm not that person to be like, 'OK, we are going to do this routine today.' I just find dancing helps me get through (isolation)."
The 40-year-old said she can spend hours in her bathroom practising a dance, often posting the hilarious results on her Instagram page.
"I am in my bathroom for hours. I put the speaker on and just think I am nailing it." she said "I think I am awesome and when I watch it back, I'm like 'nah, I'm actually not'."
But it's not the only thing the former Love Island host has turned to during lockdown, with Monk acquiring a love for pizza and a $6 servo snack.
"I didn't even like pizza before. But it's just so easy and it comes so quick. Or Caltex sandwiches. I go there to get my coffee and the sandwiches are just calling my name," she said.
"I have no moderation, it's not in my head. If I ruin the day with bad food, I'm like 'that's it I'm just going to eat three pizzas'."
However, Monk has just announced a new virtual dinner party in collaboration with HelloFresh, that has helped ramp up her cooking game.
"I am not going lie. I feel like a chef because I've got all the HelloFresh stuff. Now I feel like I am nailing it and I am almost ready for my own YouTube channel because I'm getting that confident," she said.
"I actually can't cook – even the microwave I struggle with – but this is really teaching me because it's so quick and easy."
Admittedly, Monk said she doesn't exactly know how the virtual dinner is going to pan out and is just going to "wing it".
"I'm just going to have a bit of fun with it. It will be pretty relaxed I'd say. I've never done anything like this before, so it could go either way," she said.
Her first guest is long-time friend and musician, Kelly Osbourne with the pair having first met on the set of Australia's Got Talent.
"It's pretty exciting. She's a good friend and I just DM'd her and she was like 'I'm in, I'd love to do it'."
Monk also settled rumours surrounding why she didn't want to be a part of Bardot's 20th anniversary of Poison.

Tiffani Wood, Belinda Chapple, and Katie Underwood have come together to perform the song that kicked off their fame – but Monk and Sally Polihronas requested not to be part of it or to be tagged in any Bardot reunion posts.
"I have only spoken to one of the girls (Sally). We kept in contact but the other girls I haven't spoken to for 18 years so there's nothing that dramatic behind it," Monk told news.com.au
"I think they were doing their own thing for a second and two of us have been busy and had different priorities – but one thing is I am proud of it.
"I have been celebrating Poison for 20 years. I pull it out of the hat whenever I can. I am very proud it has been 20 years for all of us. Our albums are awesome and I think we really killed it but I am focusing on this year."
Monk said there is nothing nasty about it, "on my end anyway".
