Former Liberty X star Michelle, who is a tiny size eight, said: 'This is the first time Iíve ever posed with no clothes on and Iím a bit nervous.
'Iíve been offered thousands to pose naked for ladsí mags, but always refused. Itís only now that Iíve felt ready to do it tastefully.'
But now Michelle, who said she has always struggled with her figure, felt ready to pose naked.
She added: 'Iím 31 and Iíve never been in better shape. I want to send a message that Iím an ordinary girl whoís struggled to get fit like everyone else, but Iíve finally figured out what works for me. Iím now healthy Ė itís so liberating.'

Meanwhile, Adele - who moved to Los Angeles to pursue her Hollywood dream after leaving Emmerdale - says living in the States has made a difference to the way she perceives her figure.
She said: 'Everybody is obsessed with image here, but being in LA has made me relax about my body!
'Iím 30 this year and Iím finally at ease with myself. I donít need a blow-dry and full make-up to go to the shops like some women.'

However, instead of finding fame in Los Angeles, Adele she is working as a shop assistant at Ted Baker on Melrose Place and has launched a dog-walking service.
But the actress says instead of losing weight when she moved to LA, she thinks she has gained it.
She added: 'I havenít weighed myself since I was 15 and 8st, but I work out quite a lot now, so Iím a lot leaner and more muscly than before. Muscle is heavier than fat, so I probably weigh more.
'I really like my food too. I donít do fad diets, I just eat healthily. Iíll have chicken or tuna salads, meat and veg or pasta.'
The full interview with Michelle and Adele appears in this week's issue of Closer magazine, out now.
