Millie Mackintosh has been hitting the gym hard since announcing her split with husband Professor Green.
The 26-year-old lifestyle guru and 31-year-old rapper confirmed their divorce in February after just three years of marriage and Millie, who rose to fame on E4 reality show Made in Chelsea, has been seeking solace in her fitness regime.
"She's been working out five days a week for the last three months," an insider told heat.
"Millie's always been into exercise, but she really stepped things up around new Year, when things were at their worst with Stephen. Millie really took solace in exercising through the rough times in her relationship and it became her focus. It gave her strength to say, 'Enough is enough' in the marriage.
"She saw how strong she could be - physically and mentally."
Mackintosh, who is heiress to the Quality Street fortune, has been throwing herself into juice detoxes and bootcamps around the world in recent weeks and most recently spent five days in Portugal for a healthy getaway.
Green, real name Stephen Manderson, revealed in February he had only seen his wife once in January. "We had seen each other like ships in the night, but we weren’t getting any quality time together. It is good sometimes to have space, but it is also difficult when you miss someone for that long," he told The Sun.
According to sources, the pair were hoping to make it through their rough patch, but think they settled down too young.
"It is with sadness and regret that we confirm our separation," they said in the statement. "It is a mutual decision, we still care deeply about each other and would like it to be known that it is on amicable terms and we wish each other well."
