BEING famous for losing weight is an acceptable substitute for a modelling, acting or singing career, say minor celebrities.
People who were once well-known for something else have found their amazing ability to gain and lose body fat pays off their mortgage.
Possible Celebrity Big Brother contestant Nikki Hollis said: I cant remember entirely how I gained my fame. The X-Factor, Pop Idol, Kenneth Clark’s Civilisation, one of those shows.

Sitting on the sofa not even the This Morning sofa slamming stacks of Jaffa Cakes went against every instinct in my C-list body, but it worked.
The paparazzi shots of me sweating, newly porky, around a London park went viral and that same day I had a contract for a fitness DVD with my revolutionary eat less and exercise more plan.
That, and a back room filled with shedloads of amphetamine-based diet pills bought from a company in Uzbekistan.
Which will set me up nicely for my addiction hells and massive stroke hells, pre-sold as exclusives to OK! Magazine.
