The singer's weight dropped rapidly as she dealt with the aftermath of her boyfriend Freddie Fuller being attacked with a machete at the end of 2007. She did not manage to get back to her old size until well into the new year.
"I was going through a lot of stress - my boyfriend was attacked and nearly died - and the weight just fell off me," Amelle explained. "I had some horrible comments. People were saying, 'She's anorexic'. I just thought, 'You b*****ds, you don't know what I'm going through'. I almost lost a stone and I hated the way I looked.
"I had to eat like an animal to put the weight back on. I ate a hell of a lot of chocolate. But it wasn't enjoyable at all, I really had to force-feed myself. I just wanted my old self back."
