She told the publication: "It's a hidden disability that people scoff at thinking you're just being lazy, but there are days I've slept for 14 hours and when I wake up in the morning I still haven't got enough energy to brush my teeth or do my hair.

"It's literally awful and so frustrating. I've found myself crying because I get so mad at how tired I get.

"I can't understand why my body won't let me do certain things.”

Beforeshedding an impressive nine stone, Chanelle said she thought she was feeling tired because she had been overweight.

“I thought 'I'm overweight, it's my own fault, no wonder I'm tired all of the time and no wonder my joints are killing me',” she said.

“Then as I started to lose weight I felt like the pain was getting worse and worse."
