"I've got a six-pack and no boobs, I'm turning into a boy," Abbey told us ahead of the final of the BBC One dance contest on Saturday night.
She added: "I've definitely toned up, I'm obviously not used to doing this much intense exercise. But it feels good, I feel healthy."
The 27-year-old, who before 'Strictly' was best known for being married to Stoke City footballer Peter Crouch, said she has enjoyed being able to show the public her personality.
"I just think people are used to seeing pictures of me, I haven't got a strong TV career and people don't see me speak much so this has been good for that," she said. "People have seen what I'm like everyday and people haven't been that negative towards me."
However, feisty Abbey, who came joint top of the leaderboard last weekend, isn't too bothered what people think of her anyway.
"I am who I am and I'm not coming on 'Strictly' to prove myself as a person, I'm coming on to learn how to dance and have the best time ever, which I have," she told us. "The fact that people get to see my personality is a plus."
