Katherine Jenkins' sexy physique has been wowing audiences as she competes on Dancing With The Stars over in the States, but it seems Kath is missing her former curvy figure.

Unlike the rest of us who are trying to lose weight as summer approaches, the opera singer has revealed she is trying to put weight on after hours of rigorous workouts and intensive rehearsals saw the pounds drop off.

Katherine told The Mirror: "I'm trying to not lose any more weight. I'm doing everything I can to put fuel in my body to try and put some weight back - but it's almost impossible when you are training hard 12 hours a day.

"I've always liked being a curvy girl and I'm definitely looking forward to after the show to my body going back a little bit to the way it was.

"It's brilliant the way you tone up, and everything's pulled in and I'm pretty muscular at the moment, but I would like to put a bit of weight on. I can't wait to start eating fish and chips again."

The star, along with dance partner Mark Ballas, came out on top of the leaderboard in the first part of the show's finale, which aired in America last night.

She scored perfect 10s for both her paso doble and freestyle dances despite suffering from a back spasm during last week's show.

Backstage last week, a tearful Katherine explained: "I just felt my back go as I bent back. I'm so sorry if I've let you down, Mark."

When the show went off the air, Katherine immediately sought medical attention and later tweeted: "Thank you for all your concerned tweets... I'm with the Doctor, he says it was a reflectorical spasm in my lower back."

Meanwhile, her former fiance Gethin Jones last week admitted he was still hurting over his break up with the singer, admitting he isn't ready to start dating yet.

The new Daybreak reporter told The Sun: "There's no romance at the moment. It's a bit too soon for all that. I'm taking it easy. It's nice to say I'm really focusing on work."
