Won't be long till the fitness video comes out! TOWIE's Frankie Essex very publicly fights the flab with outdoor training

By J J Anisiobi

With a holiday to Marbella, Spain, only weeks away, Frankie Essex is desperate to get herself a beach body she can be proud of.

The star of The Only Way Is Essex enlisted the help of another reality TV star to help her shed some unwanted pounds and may be trying to bag herself a DVD deal at the same time.

The 24-year-old turned to Big Fat Gypsy Weddings star Tony Giles to get her in peak condition before she hits the sandy beaches and she chose a local park to exercise in.

No grabbing: Frankie Essex was seen exercising in the park in an attempt to shed some weight before a holiday break

Frankie seemed well aware of her excess weight as she was seen grabbing her belly while exercising in public and didn't try to hide her body.

She didn't mind working up a sweat in the cold and windy weather as she displayed her torso in a pink crop top and tiny blue shorts.

Tony put Frankie through her paces by first warming her up with some gentle exercises including star jumps and squats.

Next, the professional fighter put on some pads and gave the blonde a pair of boxing gloves as she threw some punches at him.

While Frankie was clearly trying hard to push herself to the limit, she looked similar to weather presenter Clare Nasir who famously worked out in a skimpy two-piece before landing her own exercise DVD deal.

Frankie's legs showed clear signs of cellulite as she jumped around on the grass and her stomach hung slightly over the top of her shorts.

At one point, Tony was even seen pointing out her overhang as she attempted to tie up her very tight fitting shorts.

Tony, who is currently the UK1 British Champion and WSO K1 World Champion, is well experienced to be training Essex.

He normally hits the gym for at least five hours a day when he has a fight coming up so he knows the best ways to get fit.

The rugged star shot to fame when he was featured on Channel 4's Big Fat Gypsy Weddings.

He is married to Jessie Wallace's sister and glamour model Danielle Mason, although the pair have a volatile relationship.

Tony must have had a positive effect on the reality TV star as she continued her new healthy lifestyle even after their session was over.

She said on Twitter: 'Had a busy morning can't believe its nearly 6pm :) cooking me and daddy a healthy dinner tonight #homecookedmealsarebest xXx.'

However, Frankie hasn't given up her partying ways and she was seen leaving Faces nightclub in Essex, late last night.
