Lisa Riley has been our favourite contestant by far on this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' with her cheeky grin and her booty-shaking routines, and she has cemented this title even more by dressing up as Beyonce for Heat magazine.

Following in the footsteps of her former 'Fat Friends' co-star James Corden who famously parodied David Beckham's Armani shoot for the mag, Lisa has been transformed into a 'Single Lady'.

The former 'Emmerdale' actress, who labelled herself as looking like 'Beyonce pregnant or Beyonce after she's eaten all the pies' in the pictures, has also revealed that she has dropped four dress sizes since beginning 'Strictly' training four weeks ago.

"I'm now a size 20-22," she beamed to Heat. "I've honestly not done 'Strictly' to lose weight but with all the training it can't help but fall off you.

"Last week I was rehearsing the Viennese waltz and my trousers fell down!"

Lisa has been a surprise hit with the judges on the ballroom show, and found herself top of the leaderboard in the first week of the competition for her routine which saw her lift up dance partner Robin Windsor.

"Everyone probably thought I'd be the Ann Widdecombe or John Sergeant, but I'm not," she said.

"I'm never going to be Kate Moss, but I'm healthy and fit and I can move around the floor."

The full interview and more pictures appear in this week’s heat magazine, on sale now.
