Emily, 30, from Wigan, Greater Manchester, who got into bodybuilding when she became a fitness model was interviewed in the Bolton News.
The bodybuilding beauty, who hit the stage in the Bikini Tall Class at the UKBFF show in October, said: “I have to admit I always thought female bodybuilding would be these women with huge muscles. I’ve always been quite petite so I wasn’t sure how I would look but they have a bikini fitness category, which is much more feminine.
“It’s about getting a nice round shape and creating that symmetry. I think people are surprised when I say I’m a body builder because they think it’s this freakish competition, but it’s not.
“I love my new shape and it’s given my confidence a real boost.”
