Chanelle Hayes revealed to fans on social media that she is currently studying to be a nurse.
“I’m currently doing an adult nursing degree. I did my access course last year and it was a lot but it prepares you really well for uni,” she said in the clip.
Another fan asked whether she would become an advanced nurse practitioner after she finished her degree.
“Yes, indeed,” the TV personality said. “That’s exactly what I plan to do so by the time I’m 40 I’ll have a career that I probably should have had when I was 25 but whatever.”
Another user asked whether she found studying and understanding biology ‘too hard’.
Chanelle joked in a boomerang: “Thinking of getting a private tutor but unsure when I can even fit that in”.
The 33-year-old also mentioned that she attends university in person when she can, but due to coronavirus restrictions, it isn’t always possible.
Not only is she studying to become a nurse, but Chanelle is also training to offer Botox.
Wearing dark blue surgical scrubs and a Covid-secure mask, she took to Instagram a few months ago to share a video at Warrington-based Empire Aesthetics Academy, posting: “That’s right guys, I’m learning aesthetics alongside my nursing degree.”
Chanelle, who found fame on Channel 4’s Big Brother in 2007 when she was just 19, now plans to quit fame and be a fully qualified medic by 2024.
She also recently underwent Bariatric surgery in a bid to lose weight.
As a result of the surgery, she went from 17 stone to 10 stone and is continuing to document her weight-loss journey on social media.
She had shared a slowed-down clip of herself jumping around in her underwear to emphasise her ‘wobbles and jiggles’.
“I have wobbles and jiggles and bits I don’t love about myself, but looking at the physical data on paper from my healthcare team of how much my health has improved since the weight loss that caused these jiggles helps me to embrace the bits of the outer me I don’t like,” she wrote.
Revealing how her body image is changing, she continued: “Now I look at my body as something I am grateful for, that I have taken for granted, that I need to treat with respect. And something that is different to everybody else’s, always will be, and that’s ok.”
