Imogen Thomas Hypnotised In A Bid To Beat 'Cake Addiction'

Former Big Brother star Imogen Thomas has sought help from a hypnotherapist to try and beat an addiction to cake.

The Welsh model soldiered through stressful times when her affair with Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs hit the headlines but she is now attempting to deal with her problems related to spongy treats.

The reality star visited a central London clinic yesterday to undergo the alternative treatment.

Imogen took to Twitter to announce her ground-breaking news, writing: "I'm gonna be hypnotised tomorrow by @jhurstnlp kinda nervous...trying to tackle my cake eating #cakemad x x x"

The slender model, who has stripped down to her underwear for photo shoots in the past, hardly looks in desperate need to beat her addiction to buns but she appeared to benefit from the session.

After her sleepy hypnotherapy appointment, she tweeted: "I had my 1st hypnotherapy session with @jhurstnlp I feel so relaxed already. Its going to be a journey #memorable."

But it seems Imogen may not have been completely confident the hypnotherapist could help her cut the cup cakes out of her life as she later visited a fortuneteller.

Imogen tweeted: "I'm off to see a fortune teller #2excited"

The television personality recently apologised to her Twitter followers after she posted a photo of her toned tummy claiming she had gained weight over Christmas.

Imogen was accused of seeking attention when she displayed her enviable figure in the picture but later said she had some "body issues".

The slim star exclaimed: "I'm hating how much weight I've gained over xmas! On the atkins diet as of today."

After receiving criticism from Twitter users, she wrote: "I'm sorry if my 'weight photo' made ppl angry. I didn't mean to - I have some body issues. Hope u all have a lovely day."
