STRICTLY'S Jaime Laing revealed he's lost a stone and "can finally see his feet in the shower" after losing "pot belly" in training.
The Made In Chelsea star, 32, says the harsh training regime for the BBC dancing competition allowed him to shed the pounds.

Jamie exclusively tells The Sun that while he is starting to get abs, they aren't quite as good as professional dance partner Karen Hauer.
He told us: "I can see my toes in the shower for the first time in ages! I had a pot belly when I started Strictly. That’s gone now.
"I mean, I’m even getting abs, not as good as Karen’s, her abs are like the eighth wonder of the world. But I’m getting there!
"I’ve lost over a stone now, which is insane. I honestly encourage anyone who wants to lose some weight to take up dancing!"
The reality star says the training is so intense that his body thinks it's moving even after they've finished.
He continues: "My body is looking great, but it’s pretty sore. At night time, I honestly think I'm still dancing, so you think you're still on the dance floor, weirdly.
"It’s like if you’ve bounced on a trampoline and then you've got off a trampoline but you feel like you're still bouncing or like, or if you get of a boat and you feel it's still rocking.
"Karen said to me that you just constantly live in a state of tiredness and you just deal with it. It's true."
Jamie and Karen made it to the semi-finals of Strictly last weekend after beating out JJ Chalmers and Amy Dowden in the dance off.
While he concedes he doesn't have "the musicality" of competitors Bill Bailey or Maisie Smith, Jamie has his eyes on the final.
The star said: "It would mean absolutely everything to me. I think everyone says that, but trust me, mine's so much more than that.
"It would just mean the whole world because we've had no dance experience, my musicality is not as good as Bill's or someone like Maisie. I’m not an actor.
"As much as I think I am, I'm not an actor. The fact that we've gone from the bottom to the top, it would really mean everything, to be honest.
"What Strictly does is it teaches you that you can push yourself beyond how far you thought you could push yourself before.
"I think it makes you humble because it makes you realise what hard work can make you achieve. It makes you feel unstoppable."
