Amelle's Happy with 2st Weight Gain

Amelle's 2st Weight Gain
Amelle Berrabah

Pictures of a size zero Amelle Berrabah shocked fans in 2009.

But since finding love (and peace at work), Amelle's gained weight.

Now the Sugababes star says she is happier than ever with her 9st figure.

Speaking to Closer magazine, Amelle, 25, said: "I've always been thin, and conscious of it. The stress last year meant I lost even more weight.

"I wasn't not eating because I wanted to be skinny.

"I felt like a little boy with no boobs. Now I've put on weight my boobs are back and I've got a bum."

The stress that Amelle is referring to is likely to be the tension within the Sugababes, which ended in the departure of Keisha Buchanan from the band last September.

Size zero: Amelle last year But it's not only a settled work life that has given Amelle her body confidence. She also puts it down to her happiness with new boyfriend Tom Benn: "He's lovely. We've only been official for the last few weeks but it's great.

"I'm glad I found him."

So how has Amelle been getting her new, curvier figure? The singer recently posted on Twitter: "Just had the nicest pizza ever."

And: "I had a chicken club with cheese instead of bacon."

At last, a celebrity diet we can get on board with.

Life's sweet in LA for JLS

Life's sweet in LA for JLS

Jls are having a Suga-coated introduction to the tough music business in Los Angeles.

Keisha Buchanan - formerly of the Sugababes - is also in La La Land working on her debut solo album and has taken the boys under her wing, intro-ducing them to big names like Jay-Z and Kanye West.

A source said: "It's all go for JLS, and there's even talk of a collaboration with Keisha - who is already making waves with music honchos."

Proving again it's not what you know, but who you know...

The band then performed the hugely successful "Girls" with fans singing along word for word.

The fans went wild when the girls made an energetic performance of their second single from the new album "About A Girl" before moving on to "Push A Button". They made a stunning performance of "Get Sexy" and rounded off the spectacular line up with "About You Now". The girls closed the gig by thanking everyone for coming before jumping into the surprised crowd on exit.
