She has just returned from a sun-soaked week in Mallorca with her little girl and mother Gilly.

But Ferne McCann showed no signs of the holiday blues on Thursday, as she ran errands in her native Essex with her baby daughter Sunday.

The former TOWIE star, 27, displayed her envy-inducing figure in a chic teal co-ord as she stepped out in Brentwood, with her tot cradled in her arms.

She told The Sun‘s Fabulous magazine: ‘My body shape has changed completely. I’m not totally ripped but my thighs have shrunk.

‘I’m drinking more water, I’ve cut down on alcohol, I’m doing squats and deadlifts and they’ve just shrunk. I’ve got much more ­definition now.’

Reaping the mental as well as the physical benefits, she added: ‘I feel really good when I’m in better shape and eating well. I feel more confident and happy in my own skin.’
