She Got Conflicting Weight Loss Messages as a Kid
"I was a size 12 and the teachers told me I had to lose weight and that I wasn't allowed to eat things like chocolate, ice cream or cake. They told me to only eat fruit and veg for a week. But when you're not allowed something you want it even more, so I'd overeat to make myself feel better," she told Closer. Then she'd slow down. "It was a constant battle – I wanted to be skinny, but I was always hungry."
She Keeps Her Skin Clear
"In the past when I was sixteen, I had horrific skin," she told HELLO! Online. "I used to get shouted at like, 'pizza face'. That was before social media, when people could hide behind it. This is when people shouted in your face about how bad your skin is. I've dealt with really bad skin for a really long time." She uses Proactiv to clear it up.
She Has Spoke About Her Previous Miscarriage
We wish Jorgie the healthiest of pregnancies. She once miscarried quadriplets. "It was a bit harder because having the hormones times four, it was just so hard," she told Loose Women. "It was a missed miscarriage. So my body was still being pregnant and still sort of doing the, the symptoms of pregnancy and it then did carry on for a while and then which gets really heartbreaking." she added: "I felt really helpless. It was quite sad."
She Has a Dog
Jorgie's dog Stella makes for great company. "There are also many psychological benefits to having a pooch around. Dog owners are less prone to bouts of loneliness, anxiety, and depression. Simply petting your dog can make you feel less stressed. One of the greatest benefits of owning a dog is that it encourages you to practice mindfulness — being in the present moment and fully appreciating life. Mindfulness can help you relieve stress and also improves your overall health," says Harvard Health.
She Reads, Stimulating Her Mind
Jorgie posed in the pool recently, reading a book. One study "determined that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. This difference remained regardless of race, education, state of health, wealth, marital status, and depression."
