The reality star added height to her frame with a pair of black strappy heels while her friends also transformed into other members of the Spice Girls.

Chanelle's pal Simone became Mel B's Scary Spice as she sported a leopard print jumpsuit while her friend Ellie became Geri Horner's Ginger Spice with a black leather mini dress with thigh-high red boots. 

Chanelle is known for being a big fan of Victoria Beckham and has dressed like the fashion designer in the past.

Shortly after finding fame on Big Brother, the Yorkshire native stepped out in an exact replica of the outfit Victoria wore to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards that year.

It comes after Chanelle recently shared snaps of herself wearing the tracksuit bottoms she wore the day she got her gastric sleeve surgery to highlight her weight loss.

The star dropped a massive eight stone following the procedure and kept the same pair of joggers she wore, calling the transformation 'mind-blowing'.

Alongside the post, she wrote: 'These are the joggers I wore the day I went in for my gastric sleeve surgery. I kept them to compare a year on and it is completely mind blowing for me to actually see the difference.' 

Chanelle recently told how she spent years 'hating herself for being too big' but is now 'the most content' she has ever felt.

Chanelle posed underneath a sign that read 'hot stuff' and encouraged fans to embrace their bodies while crediting a change in attitude for helping her to realise she is 'good enough'.

Explaining how a change in mindset helped her to practice self-love and see herself differently, Chanelle revealed: 'I’ve realised over the past few years that I am what I tell myself I am. When I was bigger, I thought of myself as “ugly”, “the funny, fat friend”, “not worthy”, “disgusting”.

'But even when I was a size 6, weighing under 7 stone I still felt not good enough and was constantly comparing myself to others who were that bit prettier or thinner, smarter or more popular.'

She continued: 'I don’t confess to be magically “fixed” and to hold the secrets to learning to being happy all of the time. But every single day since 1st August 2020 I have told myself I am good enough, I am smart enough, I am pretty enough, I am HOT STUFF. I don’t care whether anybody agrees, I compete only with myself and achieve only for myself.'

Admitting she can still struggle with self-acceptance, Chanelle added:' I’m not happy everyday, I have bad moods and negative days but I am the most content with myself I have ever been in my life.

'I hate these kind of posts preaching to people and I’m not bragging, I am just so grateful that I feel like I’ve got my life back again.'

She shared the hashtags: '#selflove #loveyourself #happy #content #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #bariatrics #femaleempowerment #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #bodyconfidence #iamenough #selfempowerment #selfbelief #selfhelp.'

Since embarking on her weight loss journey, Chanelle has become known for her body positivity posts and was recently seen encouraging her followers to embrace their bikini bodies, while revealing her 'saggy skin' as she posed in her swimwear.

'After years of hating my body for being too big, it's now small enough that my skin looks saggy and baggy.

'I have four boobs because my implants are in one place and my actual skin and breast tissue are in another,' Chanelle explained alongside her bikini photos.

'I have stretch marks on practically every area of my body, cellulite is my constant companion no matter how big or small I may be at any given time.

'I didn't love the look of my body then and I don't love the look of my body now, but I DO love taking care of my body and the confidence that comes with being healthy.

'I'm never going to look like the airbrushed images of people online, but does that mean I don't have a bikini body? No. So I wanted to share my tips with you guys on how to get a 'bikini body': 1. Get a body. 2. Put a bikini on it.

'Voila! You have yourself a bikini body. Without waffling too much, I just wanted to mix up your Instagram feeds from the perfect online edited shots you'll be viewing with a saggy pair of boobs and baggy belly taken by myself in my garden while being splashed by my son and avoiding stepping on dog treats. We are in this together ladies.'

Chanelle decided to have gastric sleeve surgery in August last year and has since dropped from a size 18 to a size 8-10.

The procedure dramatically reduces the capacity of the stomach in order to aid substantial long-term weight loss.

Reality star Chanelle says that getting the operation was 'the best thing ever' as not only did it help her to shed around eight stone, but it allowed her to spend time with her children in a way she couldn't previously, like trampolining with them.

Chanelle is mum to son Blakely, 11, and son Frankie, three.
