Kelly Brook gains 10lbs due to comfort eating after split from rugby player Thom Evans

London, February 13 (ANI): Kelly Brook, whose feminine figure has made her a role model to millions of women worldwide, is believed to have gained around 10lbs through comfort eating following her recent split from her rugby player beau Thom Evans.

The 33-year-old star was seen displaying her noticeably larger figure as she took part in a photoshoot for her New Look swimwear range in Miami earlier this month.

The pretty brunette, who is believed to have gone from a size 8 to a 10-12 following the split, displayed her rounder stomach as she lounged in the sun in a green bikini between takes, the Daily Mail reported.

A source told Heat magazine that it's been a sad time for Kelly so it's totally understandable that she's relaxed her normally super-strict regime.

Thom was a fitness fanatic and he and Kelly made workouts and healthy eating a huge part of their relationship. He motivated her to work out hard and gave her loads of great tips.

According to the magazine, Kelly has been enjoying a few more 'carb-heavy comfort foods' than she is usually allowed as part of her protein rich diet. (ANI)
