The Xtra Factor host reveals her daily diet

7.30am Double espresso before heading to my 'reformer pilates' class (you exercise lying down on a machine), which I do three or four times a week.

9.30am Pop to a nearby Eat café afterwards for some porridge and a cup of tea.

10am Back home to let in the decorators. Drink a can of Vita Coco en route.

1pm Arrive at a photo-shoot for Race for Life, where they've laid on a big lunch – chicken with couscous and rocket, then tapioca pudding, which I scoff at my dressing-table.

2pm Get ready to be photographed (I'm being written on with body paint!). I drink lots of tea when I'm not needed in front of the camera.

5pm Stay in the same studio to shoot an advert for ITV2. Drink lots more tea.

7pm Off to a music and comedy gig. No chance to eat beforehand but I have a handful of nuts and another Vita Coco.

10pm Late dinner with friends. I usually go for something stodgy when I know I'll be drinking – macaroni cheese, with a vodka and soda.

Nigel Denby, Dietitian says:

"There's nothing harmful in the cloudy coconut drink Caroline's so fond of – it's just sweet water with a bit of potassium. But as for having any super-healthy properties, that's really just marketing hype. The rest of her day is much less faddy and her diet contains healthy, lean proteins and good carbs, but it could do with a bit more fruit and veg to be really well balanced."
