I was a huge Big Brother star, now I’m a travel agent and I love it | The Sun

BIG Brother star Chanelle Hayes has left the showbiz lifestyle in the past and now works as a travel expert.

The 35-year-old who appeared on the TV programme in 2009 is now a travel blogger.

She set up Jet Set with Chanelle Hayes in January after realising her love of travelling and mentors others to follow in her footsteps.

Posing in a variety of sun-drenched locations, enough to make most people living in England green with envy, she offers tips to fellow globe trotters.

"I started this business because I love travel. I love that I have an amazing team of people that I mentor but we have made new friendships with and speak to daily. We are the dream team!" she wrote in the caption of a recent post.

As well as working in travel, 'mumtrepeneur' Chanelle is an aesthetics practitioner and student nurse.

Shocking Big Brother transformations – £24k surgery spree to 10st weight loss

Chanelle has recently opened up about her nine-stone weight loss following her gastric sleeve surgery in 2020.

She recently shared a reel documenting the procedure along with snippets of exercise and happy times with family and loved ones.

In one picture, Chanelle revealed her scars from the incisions on her tummy.

"I get so many DMs about my weight loss surgery," she said, before revealing the most frequently-asked questions.

"Was I nervous? Yes! But I did plenty of research beforehand.

"Do I regret it? Not one bit, it’s changed my life when I was unable to do so on my own.

"Is it easy? No, there’s still lots of work to put in, it’s not a quick fix and it changes the way you eat/digest forever.

"Is it for everybody? No. Nothing is for everybody really. If you’re seriously considering bariatric surgery, do your research.

"Exhaust other options. Speak to a professional who is able to give you medical advice.

"Did it change my life? Yes it did and I am forever grateful…in some ways it didn’t only change my life but it saved it. It allowed me to live again.

"My WLS allowed me to experience things with my loved ones that I wouldn’t feel able to do before. It improved my mood, my health, my quality of life."
