FANS of Michelle Mone have expressed concern for the bra tycoon after she revealed she’s lost 10lb in less than a month and 20 lb since the start of the year.
The 43-year-old Scot has put her weight loss down to giving up alcohol after previously admitting to drinking a bottle of wine a day.
Mone, who has been teetotal since the start of the year, says she has now lost so much weight she is smaller than she was when she was aged 18.
But worried fans are voicing concerned she has taken her weight loss to extremes after she posted a picture of herself Twitter.
Next to the picture she wrote: “Time for another photoshoot. I need a shot of coffee. Book press now started #MyFightToTheTop”
She later retweeted comments from the director of her management company Claire Powell, who wrote: “Miss skinny Minnie now!!!”
Mone added: “Lost 20Ib since I stopped drinking booze. Smaller now than I was at 18.”
But follower Sage Sullivan wrote: “No more M, keep some curves.”
Rino wrote: “You look absolutely fabulous Michelle but you surely don’t want to get any skinnier..?”
Anne Bonner added: “Life’s too short!!”
It was less than a month ago that Mone first told fans about her remarkable weight loss – she had already dropped 10lb in just over two weeks.
On January 15th she Tweeted: “Yes I had BIG problem with booze 15 days off, lost 10Ib, body like a rock. Skin & eyes crystal clear, not showing off, I look like an Ultimo model.”
Maureen Kerr had commented then: “As much as I admire you and your achievements 10lb weight loss is not healthy within a short period of time. #sobriety”
In 2012 Ms Mone spoke to a woman’s magazine about her relationship with alcohol after her divorce.
She said: “I don’t like unhealthy foods now, so I didn’t turn to junk foods.
“What I did do was open a bottle of wine a night. I was getting to be every single night.
“I would open a bottle of wine and then it would be gone.”
Ms Mone, who left school at 15 and grow up in a one-bedroom Glasgow tenement, is expected to release her autobiography Fight To The Top nest month.
The busy millionairess has also been tipped to join BBC2 show Dragons’ Den after the departure of Kelly Hoppen, Piers Linney and fellow Scot Duncan Bannatyne.
