Emma Willis: Next star, 43, admits she’s ‘extremely happy’ part of career ‘FIZZLED OUT’
Emma Willis has addressed the part of her career she was happy to see the back of in a candid new interview. The Voice UK presenter is a regular face on the small screen, however she started out as a model. The 43-year-old said she is glad to no longer have the modelling “pressure” after turning her hand to television. She is now an ambassador for Project Body Love – Women’s Health’s biggest ever campaign to improve the body confidence of UK women and girls.
I would only ever be shot from above the knees
On no longer working as a model, Emma commented: “I was 18-years-old and a size 10 when I started modelling, but I was told to lose weight right away.
“And I would only ever be shot from above the knees, because I didn’t have model-skinny legs…”
The mother-of-three is now a full-time presenter and has also recently released a new collection for high street store, Next.
She continued: “I was extremely happy when that part of my career fizzled out and telly happened, because I didn’t have to think about it any more.”
The star said that although her body was “better” when she was younger, she is now more secure about how she looks.
Emma stated: “In my thirties, I had children, so loved my body because of what it had produced.
“I’m also more aware as I get older of being healthy, and taking care of my body from the inside, rather than thinking about how it looks from the outside.”
Emma said she “wants it to last for as long as possible,” as she aims to eat well “to live” rather than to “fit into a pretty dress”.
She revealed: “Which seems bonkers looking back at it… The older I’ve got, the better my relationship with my body has become, and that’s because of my mindset.”
The beauty has been married to Busted hitmaker Matt Willis since 2008 and they have children Isabelle, nine, Ace, seven, and three-year-old Trixie.
