Sam Faiers to be in 'best shape' this summer

Sam Faiers has vowed to be in the "best shape ever" this summer.

The 25-year-old star - who gave birth to son Paul Jr, her first child with partner Paul Knightley, four months ago - has been shedding her baby weight through exercise and is enjoying feeling fit and healthy.

She said: "I'm going to carry on with my fitness and hopefully by July or August, I'll be in the best shape ever.

"Before I had Paul I used to work out every day, but now being a mum is my priority. I want to prove to myself that I can get back into shape, be healthy and feel great."

The former 'TOWIE' star is breastfeeding so has been eating as healthily as possible, which she also credits for helping her get back into shape.

She told Closer magazine: "I've not put any pressure on myself to get back into shape, but I'm eating really healthily to make sure I'm passing on the best possible nutrients to Paul, so I think that helped. I've been cooking everything from scratch and I'm feeling healthier than ever.

"I don't snack as much any more because I'm so busy with the baby and I haven't had any alcohol since last April, so it's been a year now. I don't miss or crave it at all and while I'm breastfeeding I just want to be as healthy as possible. I definitely feel really healthy at the moment."
