When your figure is your fortune, it's clear Nadia Forde takes her work very seriously.

The 27-year-old model, who was recently cut from Celebrity Masterchef, is currently based in Melbourne, Australia with her boyfriend of two years Dominic Day, but is back in Dublin for work.

After wrapping her panto duties after Christmas, the singer flew Down Under to settle into her new life with her hunky other half, but will be jetting between hemispheres for work as she is still an in-demand name in Ireland.

And while she was once famous for her curves, Nadia has adopted a more regimented approach to health and fitness and has lost more than two stone in the last three years after shedding the pounds in the jungle when she appeared on ITV reality I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2014.

She credits working out five days a week and restricting her snacking to her new figure.

"My biggest tip is to cut out all snacking. I would have the odd apple or oat cracker but that is very rare now. Have three good square meals and you won't deviate," she said last year.

And while she was proudly showed off her gym-honed figure promoting Lidl Ireland's Esmara lingerie range ahead of Valentine's Day, she said she has no qualms about people skinny-shaming her.

"I don't think I am super skinny. I think I expect it [the comments]. I'm in this line of work where you put yourself out there and you have to be ready to get the grief back, that's normal. I'm happy, I'm healthy, so that's all that matters," she told Independent.ie Style last month.

"Being confident has taken time. I wouldn't dream to going back to being in my teens.

"I think as you get older you get way more comfortable in your own skin. It comes with having the right people surrounding you."

She is gearing up for a role in the stage production of The Wedding Singer in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and will be in the capital over the coming weeks and staying in touch with her boyfriend via Skype.
