Holly’s Almost Instant Stone Dropper – Fake News!
British TV personality, Holly Willoughby, has hit the front pages of the diet magazines for all the wrong reasons. She was featured in a fake advert claiming that she used diet pills to lose weight. However, she has had no dealings with the pills or the advertisers involved. This is not the first time that marketers have used her image to promote weight loss products either.
The advert showed Holly’s face along with made up quotes that endorsed the product on sale. The advert read: “I was so excited to tell my family and friends about my new “cleanse” and now they can hardly recognize me! All I have done is taken this simple ingredient for a couple of weeks and I am thrilled at the results.”
The advert then shows photos of Holly exercising, while pregnant, and then more recent after she lost some weight.
The product that is claiming to have helped Holly lose weight is “Bio Slim Cleanse”. What is even more shocking is that the advert made up a story that Holly was booted out of The Voice (BBC) in 2013 because she was overweight. They ever created a Tweet to prove it:
More fake quotes supported the claims:
“This is the best I’ve ever felt. I’ve tried everything but nothing ever worked. That’s when I discovered a new super fruit supplement called Bio Slim Cleanse. Now this stuff really works! I’m still eating my snacks!
“After using Bio Slim Cleanse, my life has completely changed. I started to shed size within months and I felt absolutely fantastic!
“I’m in the shape of my life now and I’m loving every minute!”
How Did Holly Really Lose Weight?
Holly really has lost weight – in the last year she has slimmed down and is looking really fit. However, she does not talk about her weight or her lifestyle, so we really do not know exactly how she did it.
But, we can take an educated guess. People have seen her exercising – the photo in the fake advert shows just that – and she is looking radiant and healthy, so logic would suggest that she has been following the classic, tried and tested method of exercising more and eating a healthy diet.
Also, she started Pilates after her pregnancy. Body Control Pilates founder Lynne Robinson told The Sun: “I worked with Holly for several months, teaching her privately at her home once a week.”
The advert even claimed that she was “still eating my snacks”.
Although she tends not to talk about her body, she did tell Prima magazine: “As long as I’m being healthy, that’s good enough for me. I’m quite active, and I try not to make the way I look the main focus because it’s not the important thing.”
It’s great to see Holly in such good shape, but such a shame that the weight loss scammers are exploited her infectious personality and personal success for their own profit. Remember, the only sure way to look fit and lose weight is the start exercising more, and eat a healthy, balanced diet.
