The reality TV show puts contestants through rigorous physical challenges and keeps them on a limited diet which kick-started the Dublin woman's three stone weight loss.

Since then, Nadia has adopted a healthier lifestyle with a vegan diet.

The model told The Sunday World magazine what the impact of the public's focus on her weight loss was: "You feel like you're in a cattle mart or something because you're in your body, it's your body they are talking about" .

"I just think women put so much pressure on themselves and also have pressure from people, to look a certain way. All that really matters is that you are happy and healthy.

Nobody wants to hear what other people have to say about their body.

"I work out a couple of times a week. I have changed my diet in the past couple of years. I am allergic to eggs and dairy. Going to the gym makes you feel better. It's not like I am like, 'I need to go every day'."

Nadia is currently based in Melbourne, Australia with her boyfriend, rugby player Dominic Day.

Currently, Nadia is a supporter of the HOPE #SHEis Pledge which is dedicated to promoting the protection of street and slum children in Kolkata, India.
