Nadiya Hussain has said she no longer follows anyone on social media who talks about weight loss because she has spent a lifetime feeling bad about her body.

The former Great British Bake Off winner (34) said her life is "all about balance" and that she exercises where she can and loves being able to eat what she wants afterwards.

She told Radio Times: "I've recently decided not to follow anyone on social media who talks about dieting or weight loss.

"I've spent a lifetime feeling bad about my body and my hang-ups and what I eat.

"But I'm 35 this year and, given my family history, I won't make it past 70 so I'm halfway there.

"I want to enjoy the rest of whatever I've got.

"I just love what I do and I hope I keep doing it for years to come, and I will look after myself to help that to happen."

Hussain's latest project is a television series and accompanying book aimed at simplifying things in the kitchen.
