Imogen Thomas Offers Some Advice To New Big Brother Contestants On Their ‘Voyage Of Discovery’

Imogen Thomas proves that she remains a fan of Big Brother.

The brunette beauty has been eagerly watching this year’s Big Brother and instead of providing us with sexy bikini pictures on Twitter, she’s treated us to her latest blog post - a personal message to the housemates.

The Celebrity Big Brother beauty, who shot to fame after appearing in the house herself, has been sharing some wise words of advice, encouraging the housemates to “make the most of the BB experience”.

The model said that this years contestants will be entering the house with an agenda other than to experience a “voyage of discovery”.

She wrote: “housemates see the show as a stepping stone to help their career - thinking about magazine deals and a way of becoming ‘a celebrity’.”

Admitting that this was certainly the case for herself, she continued: “It definitely gave me the step I wanted in my modelling career; just what I wanted.”

The welsh beauty has also recently been discussing her weight, saying: “I think all girls have issues about their weight. I don’t think I’m the only person out there. I’ve always been a binge girl — I’ll always binge on certain days. I get bad days when I could eat four packets of crisps. It’s not to do with being hungry, I’m eating because I want to feel better.”

Imogen Thomas has told how she struggled with her weight as she turned to binge eating during the Ryan Giggs superinjunction controversy.

A year ago, the high-profile former Big Brother contestant was accused of trying to blackmail the Manchester United footballer over their alleged affair. A court later heard there was no basis on which to accuse her of this.

Imogen admits that emotional eating over the past 12 months left her feeling fed-up with her more fulsome size 12 figure.

“I think all girls have issues about their weight,” she said. “I don’t think I’m the only person out there. I’ve always been a binge girl — I’ll always binge on certain days. I get bad days when I could eat four packets of crisps. It’s not to do with being hungry, I’m eating because I want to feel better.”

Spending so much time in the public eye and featuring regularly in lads’ magazines, Imogen is reported to have lined up a cameo in the award-winning Channel Four show Shameless. But the 29-year-old is quick to hit the gym if she doesn’t like the look of a picture.

“I get photographed a lot and I see lots of photos of myself, so that makes me more conscious of what I look like,” she said. “You look at photographs and go, ‘oh my God, look how huge I am, I have to go to the gym’.”

Imogen has had her share of critics on the social networking site Twitter. She says: “I will always get criticised the most because I am in the public eye. My mum’s Italian, so I’ve got the curves. People say, ‘how can you say size 12 is fat?’. Well, for my height, it was quite overweight.”

She says Slimsticks, which she now represents, has helped her control her appetite and lose a dress size.

“I’m happy with my weight as it is now,” she says. I’m a size 10 to 12, but now I feel extremely comfortable in my body. I’m not promoting a size zero because I could never be that size and I don’t think it looks good. Back in the day I was a size 8 when I was Miss Wales, but your body does change. I remember in 2006 when I was in the Big Brother house, I wore these All Saints jeans and six months later I couldn’t get into them. My hips had changed so much, your body changes as you get older.”

But she believes she is reaching greater maturity: “People say, ‘look, you’ve got an amazing body’, but I’m in the gym all the time. I do cardio work four times a week. The older I’m getting, I am more comfortable with myself and what I’m doing with my life.”

He treats me like an absolute princess.’

But Imogen said she is not the marrying kind and, as much as she loves and cares for Adam, and she has even warned him not to propose.

She said: ‘I just want someone to tell me they love me. I really want kids, I can’t wait for that. I’d have kids any day but marriage scares me.’

It has been a story that has been going on for almost a year but the name of the footballer involved in an affair with model Imogen Thomas was never allowed to be mentioned in court. However, Ryan Giggs has dropped his anonymity injunction in order to seek damages from The Sun for generating a large scale media storm.

His lawyer, Hugh Tomlinson explained, “The claimant’s name is in the public domain contrary to court orders. The claimant has consented to the removal of the anonymity order completely. He has suffered damage and distress by the chain of events that has been set off by the publication of the article in The Sun. We say the printing of information on the front page of a national newspaper can give rise to an action for misuse of private information.”
 
While everybody has known for quite some time now that Ryan Giggs had an affair with Imogen Thomas, he has tried to hide behind an anonymity injunction. However, now that the injunction has been lifted, the name of Ryan Giggs can now be used freely in court. Ryan Giggs also had an affair with his brother’s wife Natasha Giggs, who then went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother.

Former Big Brother beauty Imogen Thomas has revealed how she has some serious issues when it comes to her weight. The Welsh wonder has a figure that many women would die for but she insists that she is not happy with it and even claimed that she often feels fat and is on a constant binge diet.

Thomas explained, “People think I’m confident with my body, but I’m not. I’m pushing a size 12, which I know isn’t fat, but it’s more about how I feel about it. I think I’ve got fat hips and I’ve never really been happy with my body. I’ve become obsessed. People say I’m silly for complaining about my body, but they’re not in my head.”
 
She added, “I posted a photo on Twitter of me in my underwear, saying I’d gained weight over Christmas and couldn’t wait to lose it. Boy, did I get slated! Everyone said I was attention-seeking and sending out the wrong message to young girls because I already had a slim figure. I didn’t mean to upset anyone and I apologise if I made anyone angry. I know I’ve got body issues.”
 
Imogen concluded, “I take them to heart and it affects my relationships. Nearly all my boyfriends have told me to stop obsessing about my weight, but I can’t help it. I feel like I’ve been on a diet all my life. People say I’ve got a great body, but I’m stuck in binge-diet hell.” Imogen Thomas has become a regular hate figure, with people often being rude and offencive towards her on her Twitter page.

Former Big Brother beauty Imogen Thomas has been cleared of the blackmail allegations made against her. It was revealed that Imogen Thomas had an affair with Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs earlier this year and since then, Giggs has accused Imogen of trying to blackmail money out of him.

It is believed that Ryan Giggs accused Imogen Thomas of trying to blackmail him for £110,000 so that she did not go to the press and reveal all the sordid details about their affair. However, Imogen denied this straight away, stating that the claims were false and labelled them as “outrageous”. Now, a court has heard that there was no basis for the blackmail accusation.
 
A statement revealed, “CTB and Ms Thomas have now resolved matters between them. Ms Thomas did not want to disclose private information concerning CTB. That remains her position now that the record has been set straight.” CTB is the term being used for the married footballer involved in the case. 
 
Imogen Thomas said afterwards, “To suddenly have to defend my character because of this legal process has been extremely upsetting and stressful. I’m just relieved that the parties and the court now accept that I’m no blackmailer. I have been vindicated and that’s all I wanted. I have nothing to add - it’s all behind me now.”
