A svelte and slimline Josie Gibson shows off the full extent of her four stone weight loss in a skimpy crop top and hotpants

By Louise Saunders

She's lost a staggering four stone in just over six months.

And Josie Gibson has shown off the full extent of her incredible weight loss in a sexy new shoot.

Posing up a storm in a miniscule black cut-out crop top and matching hotpants, the 27-year-old flaunted her tiny waist and toned limbs in all their glory.

Svelte and sexy: Josie Gibson showed off her incredible weight-loss in a sassy shoot for Fabulous magazine

With her long blonde locks scraped back into a high ponytail, the former Big Brother winner's weight-loss was clear to see thanks to her features standing out from her newly-defined cheekbones.

The bubbly Bristolian completed her svelte and sleek look with a gold statement necklace as she posed in a sassy shoot for Fabulous magazine.

After shedding the pounds earlier this year, Josie explained she will never go back to her old ways and has vowed to kick her former habit of over-indulgence once and for all.

A shadow of her former self: The 27-year-old reality star has lost an incredible four stone in just six months

She recently said: 'It's taken me over six months to lose nearly 4st and I couldn't be prouder of myself.

'In fact, from now on you'll probably be confusing me with Miranda Kerr. Kind of. I'll honestly never be fat again and looking to the future doesn't fill me with fear like it used to.'

And the star admitted losing such a vast amount of weight has made her change her entire outlook on life.

Josie added to Now magazine: 'I spent months at the start of my health kick craving all things sweet and my old diet. But now, hand on heart, I'll choose a bit of sushi over a lamb doner any day.'

Despite her new attitude to life, the reality star seemed excited at the prospect of a tasty Christmas lunch earlier this week.

Writing on her Twitter page on Christmas morning, she said: 'Merry Christmas!! The Meat is on!! Just had my first meal of the day!!! Let's frikkin eat like its 1999!!!! Ye mon!'

Josie is well-known for her yo-yo diet tendencies, having lost the weight and subsequently piled it all back on again numerous times over the past few years.

She previously said: 'Before I lost weight I was nearly size 20 and my only exercise was partying. I've tried all the diets - I did the Cambridge Diet and lasted from the meeting until I got home!

'They gave me all the bits and pieces but I ate a week's worth of food on the spot, then stopped for a kebab.'


Up fur a laugh? From delirious dogs to maniac monkeys, we reveal the funniest animal photos of 2012

By Daniel Miller

They're the funniest animal photos of 2012, the maniac moggies and marvelous mutts who have brightened up our year with their utterly barmy exploits

And it's not just household pets which have brought a smile to out faces - the dogs and cats are joined by a host of bonkers animals including horses, monkeys and even a goat.

Image sharing website has amassed a huge selection of animal pictures throughout the course of the year and here we've picked out some of the very best for you to enjoy.

Long arm of the paw: A playful pooch pops out of its owner's top in what looks like a science experiment gone wrong

Seductive eyes: A touch of mascara really brought out the best in this cheerful chap with a pair of hilarious drawn-on brows

Fluffy friend: This long-haired kitten might appear a bit stuck-up but its little owner loves it all the same

Horsing about: A young girl enjoys a laugh with her four-legged friend

There's the dog that looks just dandy with a set of painted on eyebrows, a playful pup who can't wait to show off its pole-dancing skills and another, which when viewed from a certain angle looks like quite something else entirely.

We've got some maniac monkeys too who don't appear particularly happy after hitching a lift on top of tourist during a water ride.

And hats off to the horses who've had a sterling year whether trying on the latest blue jeans to just enjoying a good lark with their owners.

And if there is anyone out there seriously considering getting a goat for a household pet we've got just the picture to put you off.

So put your own two paws together for all our four legged-friends and remember to keep those pictures coming in during 2013.

Camera shy: This rather plump cat does not appear particularly pleased about having its picture taken

A cheeky squirrel enjoys a slice of peperoni pizza while a playful pup shows off its pole dancing skills

Best of mates: This lazy hound dog was in a need of a little snooze and he found the perfect spot to snuggle up on his buddy's back

This man appears quite calm about having a pair of manic monkeys on his shoulder, the monkeys however are not so relaxed

Hair of the dog: A back-combed bouffant was the must-have style for this pampered pooch

It takes all sorts: As this rather unusual picture proves. We're not quite sure what's going on with the doll, or the cringe-worthy Christmas jumpers for that matter

A little squiffy: It must have been a heavy night for this lightweight Chihuahua but at least its got a friend to nurse it through the morning

Dozing off: This pooch on the left looks like its struggling to stay awake while the innocent little dog on the right appears to be quite something else entirely when viewed from a certain angle

Goats are not your normal household pets and, judging by the behaviour of this example, for good reason

This horse looks delighted at finally having found the perfect pair of blue jeans

Looking swell: Coleen Rooney unveils the beach bump in Barbados that'll be a baby brother for Kai

By Kimberley Dadds

Coleen Rooney showed off her pregnancy bump for the first time yesterday as she soaked up the winter sun in the Caribbean.

Wearing a Hermes gold bracelet, bikini and floral cover-up, the 26-year-old played with son Kai, three, in the sand on an exclusive resort in Barbados.

And it is clear her little boy did not inherit his straight posture from his father.

Pregnant and proud: Coleen Rooney shows off her growing baby bump as she parades on the beach in Barbados with son Kai

Looking swell: The WAG happily flaunted her burgeoning belly in a black string bikini as she cooled off in the water

Wayne Rooney was famously photographed hunched over as he exited the sea with his parents in a strikingly similar pose. Then aged 17, it was their first family holiday to Mexico, after he emerged as a teenage football sensation.

Coleen announced earlier this month that she was expecting her second child with husband Wayne, 27.

The Manchester United striker was unable to join his family on the holiday as he is having treatment for a knee injury.

Coleen revealed on Twitter that she was expecting another son.

She tweeted: 'Absolutely loved seeing our baby on the scan yesterday!!! It's a ..... BOY!!'

Flashback: Husband and Wayne with his parents in 2003

Play time: The 26-year-old joined son Kai as they took to the water for a playful afternoon

Winter sun: After enjoying Christmas at home the Rooney clan have headed to the Caribbean for some winter sunshine

Exciting times: Earlier this month Coleen and husband Wayne revealed they are expecting a son in May next year

Water babes: Kai giggled as he wore a shark fin on his back and paddled in the water

And obviously in a playful mood she joined Kai, who was dressed with a shark fin on his back as he took to the water.

Both mother and son spent some time cooling off as they took a dip in their summer get-ups.

Kai was even seen giggling with delight as Coleen put him in an inflatable dragon ring and span him around as he floated.

Surrounded by friends and family Wayne Rooney's wife was snap happy as she carried her camera and took shots of their idyllic relaxing day.

Family time: The WAG dragged her three-year-old son's inflatable dragon into the water ready for4 yet more fun

Bonding: Kai was delighted as he floated and span around in the rubber ring

Perhaps feeling slightly burnt, the clothes designer later decided to put on a flowered kaftan top to cover up some of her skin, while she put sunglasses on to protect her eyes.

Although she still happily let her bump be on display.

Their lavish trip comes after they spent Christmas Day relaxing at home during some Wizard of Oz themed festivities.

It's not really a traditional Christmas costume, but Coleen Rooney dressed up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz for the special day.

Snap happy: Rooney ensured she kept the memories from their trip by taking pictures on the beach

Lapping it up: The Rooneys spent Christmas at home but have since jetted out to the Caribbean this week

Holiday spirit: Both mother and son were all smiles as they left the dreary British weather behind them to see 2013 in

Centre of attention: Coleen played the doting mother as she showed off her bikini figure

The 26-year-old WAG, who is expecting her second child with husband Wayne, posed up with her three-year-old son Kai, who was dressed up as the Scarecrow, in the adorable shot.

Coleen wore a blue and white gingham dress, with a matching bow in her hair, and even painted freckles onto her face to make her character even more realistic.

Meanwhile, Kai wore a blue top and brown trousers, with a hat and collar trimmed with straw, topped off with a red painted nose.

Looking after her bump: Coleen ensured she smothered on the sun protection as she enjoyed the rays

Castles in the sand: After enjoying their dip the pair then took to the shore to make the most of the beach

A little burnt? The clothes designer later covered up slightly in a flowered kaftan top

Next! The Rooney family were full of activities as they whiled away the time on the Barbados beach

Watch out, there's a shark! Little Kai strapped on a shark fin before running into the water

And Coleen took the opportunity to explain that the Kai is a huge fan of the Wizard of Oz - and that's why the Rooneys had dressed up.

She wrote on Twitter: 'Happy Christmas everyone! Have a fab day. Kai is over the moon, Santa's been! ( mummy even got a Dorothy costume!) loves the wizard of oz!'

This Christmas marks an extra-special occasion for the Rooneys, as Coleen revealed on Twitter earlier this week that she and Wayne have found out they are expecting another boy to add to their brood.

Lapping it up: Coleen couldn't take the grin off her face as she enjoyed her time in one of her favourite holiday destinations

Mummy's little dragon: She looked dotingly on at Kai as she continues top prep for child number two

Kim flattered her hourglass curves in a plunging silk mini dress, nipped in at the waist. She teamed it with a pair of over-the-knee boots and a black and gold clutch bag.

She wore her hair long over her shoulders, having made multiple visits to the salon over recent days.

She revealed on her blog that the salon had been dyeing her hair darker after she lightened it while in Miami.

Kanye cast her admiring glances as they left a Chinese restaurant in West Hollywood.

He wore his trusty black leather trousers, which he loves so much he rarely takes off.

I've been traveling so much.'

'Jealousy is a weak emotion': Row between X Factor winners James Arthur and Matt Cardle escalates in bitter Twitter row

By Daily Mail Reporter

He launched a bitter tirade of words against X Factor winner James Arthur last week.
But now it seems that 2010 winner Matt Cardle is getting a taste of his own medicine as the Impossible singer has bit back in a thinly disguised Twitter rant.

After maintaining that he was more successful than James seeing as he had sold two million records, Matt has had to face the former pub singer's wrath:

'2 million returned and now live in the bargain bin at asda give it up the tunes are brutal.. the desperation for press is embarrassing,' he wrote on Twitter on Friday, alluding to Matt's claim.

No love lost: James Arthur has hit back at Matt Cardle on Twitter after he claimed to be more successful than this year's X Factor winner

Clearly unimpressed with this dig, Matt wrote: 'It's very very cosy in the bubble.... It really is.'

Out to prove that he was going to be more successful than his predecessor, James went on to say to his followers:

'Platinum single baby! Not a bad start :) thanks to all who bought it now make sure the hillsbrough tune is number 1!! #LOVE.'

And hitting back at Matt's last tweet, he wrote:

'Jealousy is a weak emotion.. Learnt that in the real world where I lived for quite some time..'

He's not bitter! Matt Cardle ditched the hat for performances this year, he was seen playing Clyde 1 Live in Glasgow

James' Twitter fury came a few days after Matt's interview with The Daily Mirror.

'I said, 'Look, James, you're very talented but you haven't sold two million records yet, which I have,' he said.

'You haven't had two top ten albums yet, which I've had. Don't start mouthing off before you've even really left the show,' he added.

Hitting back: Reacting to Matt's interview earlier this week, James launched a thinly veiled Twitter attack

Matt, 29, added that James was lying if he said he hadn't compromised himself for the show and added his 'creative input comments' had rubbished the reputation of the X Factor.

The singer may have been feeling hurt after James claimed that he'd be striking out on his own creatively after his win, unlike some of the previous male winners:

'The blokes that have won before have had a niche, they haven't sold records because they haven't made great albums. That's the bottom line,' he said after winning the show.

Rising star: James has put Matt's tirade down to 'jealousy', alluding to the 2010 winner on Twitter

Feud: Both winners have become embroiled in bitter war of words in the press and on Twitter

When We Collide, Matt's winning single went straight to the number 1 spot on Christmas selling 439,000 copies, while James' single Impossible sold 490,000 copies in the first week alone.

James said recently about his album: 'I want to be going into a studio thinking I need to put the best possible twelve tracks or whatever it is out there because I haven’t worked this hard to have my first album flop.

'My album is going to be quite diverse. It’ll have hip hop influences, it’ll have rock influences, it’ll all be self-penned and the collaborations on it will be good ones I think.'

He even plans to crack America, while Matt's new album The Fire has debuted at number 8 in the UK charts.
