Sally Morgan weight loss: Celebrity Big Brother contestant’s dramatic transformation – before and after
Celebrity Big Brother contestant Sally Morgan had fans desperate to know the secret behind her incredible weight loss when she entered the famous Elstree abode on August 16, alongside Kirstie Alley, Dan Osborne and Ryan Thomas.
Sally boasted a slender frame on the Channel 5 programme, although she has previously stated she weighed almost three times her current weight.
Rodrigo Alves‘ housemate once weighed 27 stone, but she now weighs in at around 10 and a half stone, which means she has lost over 88 kilograms.

Speaking previously to Loose Women, she said: “I’ve lost a lot of weight. I’ve lost 88 kilos, about 16 and a half stone.”
But how has Sally done it?
The star decided to take extra measures to shed the pounds after her doctor warned her she was at risk of suffering a heart attack if she did not lose any weight. She continued: “I had a little heart scare, so basically it was either lose weight or don’t be here really.”
Sally went through with the weight loss plan because she insists she was a “yoyo dieter”.
Sally underwent gastric bypass surgery, which is when the intestine is divided into different sections and the small intestine is rearranged then attached to the stomach to make the patient feel fuller quickly and to absorb more calories from the food ingested, almost 10 years ago when she was around 58 years old.
The psychic explained: “At the time I was 58 and my doctor said we just need to get this weight off. I was a yo-yo dieter and basically they got me better enough so that a year later I had the bypass.
“Because I’d been a yo-yo dieter since the age of 33, I would lose two stone but I was 27 stone. When you lose two stone, you think ‘this is amazing! I’ll have a potato tonight’, and before you know it the weight is back on.”
