Shirley Ballas reveals how she dropped 9lbs in just seven days ahead of new Strictly Come Dancing | The Sun
SHIRLEY Ballas has revealed how she lost nine pounds in just seven days.
The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 62, recently spent a week on a luxury juice retreat in Portugal and insists she'll be sticking with her new healthy habits now she's home.
Shirley said: "I lost 9lb. Yoga is definitely something I'm going to keep up throughout the whole Strictly series.
"I have cleansed my system too, I do colonic irrigation, I'm up at 5am every morning."
The dancer added to MailOnline: "I wasn't there to sunbathe, I was there to take every spin class, two hours hiking up hills that would put my heart rate close to 179, that's how high we were going.
"It was a tough, tough week of hard work but I came back really rejuvenated."

“He has a very busy schedule and I have a very busy schedule.
