Loose Women panelist Saira Khan, 49, opened up about her weight loss journey online this week.
The television star, who turns 50 in under two months time, is determined to fit into an old pair of jeans before her milestone birthday.
Saira has been documenting her fitness regime and progression on Instagram as she self-isolates at home with her family amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The ITV star posted two pictures side-by-side on Monday which showcased off her recent weight loss.
In the first picture, the mum-of-two sported a white sports bra and briefs and had a pair of dark denim jeans pulled up to her knees.
The second snap showed her in black underwear with the same trousers pulled up to her thighs.
Pointing to her – almost done-up – jeans, Saira wore a big smile on her face as she snapped a selfie in the mirror.
She told her 63,800 followers: “On other news, remember my Jeans that would not go past my knees, which made me determined to get into them by my 50th birthday!!
Well I’m making progress, we’re up to the thighs!”
Saira continued: “I’ve got until May 15th to zip them up.”
Addressing the need to keep busy and have a positive attitude during the unprecedented lock-down, she went on to explain how the jeans were a good distraction for her.
She added: “We all need a focus to take our minds off things that worry and upset us and as I’m not going anywhere for the foreseeable future – these jeans are a great distraction.”
