SHEFFIELD Olympics gold medal hopeful Jessica Ennis - the ‘Poster Girl’ for London 2012 - says: “On a scale of one to 10, I’d rate my body confidence as a good seven.”

The World Champion heptathlete advises women to love their body the way it is. “Everyone has their hang-ups, but I see my body as a training tool and I feel good about it. I’m pretty body confident, and I’m comfortable being naked.”

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she adds she is trying not to feel the pressure of the nation on her shoulders during Olympics preparations.

“I understand what people expect from me – I think it’s normal for the general public to be putting gold medals around your neck already because they want to see you do well. But I just try to keep things in perspective, stay focused on what I need to do and not get carried away.”
