'I've never been happier!' Jodie Marsh, seen here arriving at the ITV studios this morning, said her new bodybuilding physique has ended her two-year man drought

Muscular: Jodie showed off her tiny size six figure in a crop top and black jogging bottoms

She told The Sun: 'I have never attracted so much interest from blokes in my life.

It's been a real eye-opener. For the last two years I went through a complete drought of men.

'No one was chatting me up. I despaired of ever having a boyfriend, or even a date, again. But since I became a bodybuilder, I've suddenly got about 50 guys interested in me.'

Jodie, who has dated stars including Fran Cosgrave and Kian Egan, as well as experimenting with the same sex in a brief lesbian phase, added to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning today that she has already picked up a few phone numbers from her first championship.

She said: 'I'm single but the bodybuilding men are gorgeous. When you walk into a bodybuilding show you don't know where to look.

'There are these gorgeous men with the best bodies you have ever seen in your life. I took about 5 phone numbers!'

Jodie, who has slimmed down from a size 12 to a tiny size six, and from nine-and-a-half stone to eight stone, also said she is still in disbelief that she has managed to alter her figure so radically.

She said: 'It is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life and also the best thing. I feel amazing. I'm buzzing every day. I can't believe its my body.

'Even when i look at pictures of myself, I think, "Is that really my stomach?" '

But it's not been an easy journey for the former Celebrity Big Brother star, who revealed she eats 15 egg whites and seven protein shakes a day - cutting carbohydrates out of her diet entirely.

Jodie also has to push herself in the gym every singe day in order to maintain her new muscular physique.

Explaining her daily workout regime, she said: 'I do three hours of cardio, two hours of weights and one hour of abs a day. I also do an hour of posing and routine work.

'When you're on stage, you have to do the compulsory poses and then you have to do a routine to music.

'The posing is harder than any weight training in the gym because you have to hold it for so long and have to tense every single muscle at the same time.'

Jodie's transformation into a bodybuilder has been documented for DMAX show Jodie Marsh: Bodybuilder, due to premiere in January 2012, but the Essex-born star insists she would have gone down the bodybuilding route with or without the TV cameras.

She said: 'The whole thing was for a television show but I wanted to do this anyway.

My trainer Tim Sharp approached me 3 years ago and said that he could get me fit.

'All along he said to me that I should do a competition. He's been competing for 20 years and he said I would love the buzz.

'I've been bodybuilding for three years but I was given 8 weeks to get into shape for the competition. So I had to lose a stone of fat and get ripped for this competition.'

Winner: Jodie came in fifth position in the Natural Physique Association (NPA) Mike Williams Classic and Pro-Am Bodybuilding Championships

Jodie debuted her new physique at the Natural Physique Association (NPA) Mike Williams Classic and Pro-Am Bodybuilding Championships last month.

And Jodie took the opportunity during her interview on This Morning today to deny that her new figure is down to chemical assistance.

Asked if she had taken any drugs to get into shape, Jodie said: 'Absolutely not and for the TV show I had to be polygraph tested and drugs tested.

'All of these shows are natural bodybuilding shows. If you get caught on drugs then you are banned for life and you're not allowed to compete.

'My body is 100 per cent natural and I'm proud of that, because I could have gone down the steroid route but I wouldn't want to.'

Jodie, who has to don incredibly dark bodybuilding tan for her competitions, also said the pictures of her on stage aren't accurate in terms of how she looks in real life.

She said: 'In pictures you can't tell how big someone is and in those I look like some 16-stone beast of a man.

'But I'm just toned, I'm a size six, eight stone, 5ft 2. You can see that I'm not huge.'

Jodie's new body, honed by personal trainer Tim Sharp, saw her come in fifth position in the world-famous championships in Sheffield.
