Emma Willis is currently appearing on Saturday night TV, presenting ITV’s The Voice UK. The star hasn’t changed much in her appearance since her days presenting MTV in 2002, but in more recent years, Emma has had to “reassess everything”, particularly after being struck down with a mystery illness.
The 43-year-old was left feeling stressed and bloated when an unexplained condition left her “puffy”.
As a result she decided to make some big life changes to overcome symptoms of the illness.
Emma told Women’s Health: “Normally, I’m a very positive, happy person and suddenly I wasn’t, and that really affected me.
“I went to see a nutritionist, who did some tests, and it turned out to be lots of different things that were all over the place.

“Stress, inflammation in my body, as well as being puffy and bloated, and I was just knackered.
“You don’t realise that those things affect your body in the way that they do, until you’re not in a good place. I had to reassess everything.”
The mum-of-three has also opened up about her body confidence journey, revealing her post-baby body has made her feel more comfortable.
She said: “It’s funny because, when I was younger, my body was ‘better’, but I was more insecure about it.
“Then, in my thirties, I had children, so loved my body because of what it had produced.
“I’m also more aware as I get older of being healthy, and taking care of my body from the inside, rather than thinking about how it looks from the outside.”
Bloating is a common problems, usually felt after a big weekend or over a festive season.
Some of the causes of bloating include excess farting, constipation, swallowing air, and food intolerances.
