However, she's now revealed another reason for her transformation: She's releasing a fitness DVD.

Scarlett announced the news on Instagram, sharing this photo of the DVD's cover.

She posted it alongside the caption: "When you can eat 2 types of birthday cake and not feel guilty because you know you can just smash the DVD. Lovelies it's out for pre order on Amazon now, the fact that I'm a bloody professional couch potato and did it, I am 10000% positive you lovely lot can."

But celebrity fitness DVDs have a controversial history.

In many cases, the celebrities haven't just followed the DVD workouts, but also dedicated diet and fitness plans created by professionals. Numerous celebrities have spoken publicly about how they put the weight back on after the DVD was released because they weren't being held to such a strict regime – and one, EastEnders' Natalie Cassidy, said the fitness DVD industry is a "farce" and that she came close to developing an eating disorder as a result.

Others said the public were being misled by celebrities claiming their weight loss was down to following just a DVD, and not from a professionally created diet and personal training plan.
