I missed my old cleavage: Dancing On Ice coach Karen Barber admits going under the knife

When Dancing On Ice's head coach Karen Barber lost two and a half stone, she was thrilled with the results.

Despite her joy with her size 8 figure, like many newly-slim women, she was missing her formerly fuller cleavage.

So after struggling to accept her deflated décolletage, the 50-year-old decided to take action and undergo a breast enlargement operation.

But rather than opt for bigger size, Barber returned to the size she was before she dropped four dress sizes.

Unveiling her new cleavage for the new issue of Best magazine, Barber said she feels so much happier now her 'old' boobs are back.

She said: '‘Please don’t let people think I’ve gone all Jessica Rabbit though. There’s no Double D cup for me. Actually I’ve just gone back to the size I was before I lost all the weight.

'I was delighted to have lost the weight but it took its toll and I lost weight from areas I didn’t want to.

'I especially lost a lot of definition from my breasts and it played on my mind – every day, if I’m honest, for the last two years.'

Barber admits her boyfriend, fellow skater and Dancing On Ice colleague Christopher Dean, gave her his full support.

She explained: 'Chris is happy because I am.

'He knew things were bothering me and can see that I’m a new woman post surgery.'

Barber transformed her figure when she went from a size 16 to a size 8 after following the Hay diet - which recommends not eating carbohydrates with protein.

Barber and Dean started dating in late 2010 after splitting from their respective spouses.

The Mancunian split from husband Stephen Pickavance after 21 years of marriage, while Dean divorced second wife Jill Trenary in 2010.
