Bonnie Stainer signed up for Take Me Out after not having had a date for 12 years.
Speaking to the Daily Star, 33 year old Bonnie said: “When I was 29 I got pregnant with my first child. Because I’d never worried about my weight I thought I could eat whatever I wanted.
“For a while it was fine and then suddenly I ballooned. I couldn’t seem to stop eating.”

Bonnie added that she soon struggled to ride her horse when her weight reached 16 and a half stone.
Describing the effect her weight gain had on her life as “awful”, the reality contestant admitted it also had a huge knock on her sex life.
She continued: “At times I didn’t even want to leave the house.”
Before signing up to the show last year, Bonnie decided to get her health and fitness under control, losing an impressive eight stone.
