    She said: ‘I’ve always been quite insecure. I had followed Mum and Dad into TV and yet in my heart of hearts I knew it wasn’t for me.

    Admitting her struggle was exacerbated by break-ups with boyfriends or arguments with friends which left her ‘deeply unhappy’ she said: ‘I would struggle to leave the house, to eat, to do anything other than go out and drink.

    ‘I felt s**t all the time. I was crying every day and praying to feel indifferent about things.

    But all that changed when an ex-boyfriend introduced the blonde beauty to weight-lifting five years ago, which led her to begin training four times a week and feeling ‘strong and capable.’

    She said exercise gave her ‘purpose’ in life as before she was ‘just’ Richard and Judy’s daughter.  

    The star, who still deals with anxiety, also said she believes she would  be on medication if it wasn’t for weightlifting said she now feels like a ‘different person’.

    The star also opened up about how proud she is of mum Judy’s recent weight loss, saying it happened by ‘sheer coincidence’ due to a newfound love of sushi picked up when her parents visited Australia earlier this year. 

    Before Richard and Judy took up their new healthy eating lifestyle Chloe said she had given up on trying to get her parents to adopt her clean-living lifestyle .

    The stunning star is in a long-term relationship with rugby player James Haskell and said marriage is on the cards for the pair in the not too distant future.

    She also said she is considering freezing her eggs as the thought of children ‘terrifies’ the pair at the moment. 

    The star revealed James had ‘stalked’ her on Twitter after seeing a photo of her weightlifting before repeatedly calling her.

    However Chloe initially gave him the cold shoulder saying she wasn’t interested in ‘sleeping with’ or dating him.

    The two met after James invited Chloe to be the face of a female food supplement line, and although at the meeting there was no supplements to be seen, she said she noticed a spark straight away, 

    The model appeared on Good Morning Britain in August alongside her father, Richard, which raised one or two eyebrows.

    The veteran presenter interrupted the chat Chloe was involved in on the show to insist that having his daughter on the ITV programme was nothing to do with ‘nepotism’ – revealing she had been booked by researchers to plug her upcoming fitness book before it was known he would be hosting.

    Despite no one suggesting anything of the sort, Richard was clearly worried viewers would get the wrong idea.

    He declared: ‘Can I just say, for those of you who will say, “This is disgusting, it’s nepotism that his daughter’s on the show”, she was booked ages ago to do this – I just happen to be here presenting today.’

    Chloe laughed off the awkward moment, saying of regular host Piers Morgan: ‘I was quite glad, I find Piers a blast but you can’t really get a word in edgeways!’
