Reality TV star Jodie Marsh has been up to some serious bodybuilding – and says that she now gets more attention from men than ever

Marsh, 32, decided to start getting buff two years ago and has now transformed herself from glamour girl to champion weight lifter, with generous helpings of fake tan bronzer.

For her new career as a tattoo artist in the reality show 'Jodie Marsh: Tattoo Apprentice' and also the upcoming Discovery Channel show 'Jodie Marsh Bodybuilder' the Essex star was on a strict diet of egg whites and protein shakes.

She told the hosts of ITV's This Morning, Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that she didn't use drugs to achieve her lean figure and ripped muscle definition.

Marsh told the Sun newspaper "I don't give a s*** what they say. I feel sexier than I

have for ten years."
