We could all enjoy a guilt-free chocolate splurge over the Easter weekend - and top model Sarah McGovern said she's no different.
Like most of the rest of us, she struggles with her sweet tooth.
The mum-of-two has sworn off diets, but admits she is not as strict with herself as she should be when it comes to healthy eating.
"I don't have time to be as healthy as I should be," Sarah told the Diary.
"I eat a bit of everything and I don't starve myself by any means. I am a complete chocoholic and I need to have some chocolate every day.
"I have to get off that buzz but, with the kids and working, it can be hard," she said.
The 38-year-old is still a regular on the catwalk and admitted she is surprised herself to be still landing bookings for lingerie and bikini shows.
However, she said that her metabolism allows her to be a little less strict on herself.
"I am lucky in terms of what I can eat, but I am very bad when it comes to exercise - so I am trying to improve. I have actually started running lately," she said.
"But myself and my family are good in that we don't eat out and we don't do takeaways. We are not grabbing ready-cooked meals regularly, so that is our family's thing.
"We eat a good lunch and I always make dinner from scratch. I still eat what I want in that regard, but I think if you keep the sugar content low and the salt content low then you are going to be okay."
