Kelly Osbourne's weight loss tears

Kelly Osbourne has confessed to weeping over the compliments she has received on her new figure.

The Radio 1 DJ, daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, has slimmed to a size 6 and is overwhelmed by everyone telling her how great she looks.

Kelly wrote in her Closer magazine column: "It's amazing to read the nice things people have written about me - I've been in tears! It feels so much better than being criticised."

She added: "Everyone seems to be talking about my 'new' image - but honestly. I haven't done anything different apart from wearing some nice dresses! I'm the thinnest I've ever been though - size 6 now. I still can't quite believe it.

"Since I've been on a detox diet for the past month, I've lost even more weight. I didn't detox to lose weight, but cutting out carbs and sugar has definitely helped. My skin looks better, too."
