Just two months after running the London Marathon, Kate Lawler appears a shadow of her former self. The Big Brother winner looked dangerously thin as she soaked up the sunshine on a Spanish beach last week. A fit and athletic Kate, 28, was recently pictured running the marathon wearing only Ann Summers lingerie to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. But despite downing a pint of beer, there was no sign of a beer belly as ultra-slim Kate headed for a swim in a skimpy black bikini. Kate's body shape has fluctuated since coming out of the BB house as the 5ft 7in star's weight at one point dropped down to 8st 8lb. The DJ reportedly refuses to eat carbohydrates in the evening and trains four to five times a week at the gym.

Was there any need for the black skimpy undies? Anyone who's prepared to pour cold water on the efforts a woman who just hammered herself over 26 miles to raise money for charity has got to be harbouring some kind of pathetic grudge and yes, I do wish I had the body to leap glibly around town wearing nothing more than frilly black Ann Summers knickers and a sports bra. I can't help but feel that the former Big Brother winner's teeny ensemble was somewhat out of place. I have never run the marathon but I know plenty of people who have, and fancy undies are not what I associate with the race and gargantuan effort that goes into preparing for it gargantuan effort, that is, unless your name is Jade Goody and your idea of training is vigorously waving a take-away menu about for three minutes. Among the many, many reasons I can think of not to run the marathon are, in no particular order: early morning runs, early evening runs, weekend runs, running in the rain, running in the heat, enforced carbohydrate consumption, months off the sauce and the fags, no social life, blisters, blackened toenails, missing toenails, sweat, exhaustion, shin splints, jogger's nipple.
