Lily Allen has admitted she was suffering from an eating disorder when she paraded a svelte new figure in 2009.
The British pop star posed for a series of sexy photoshoots after losing weight, which she put down to a healthy diet and exercise regime.
But the Smile singer, who has long struggled with body image issues, has confessed she was throwing up after meals to maintain her trim waistline.
In new TV show, Lily Allen: From Riches to Rags, which was recorded last year (10), she explains, "There was a point last summer (09) where I'd say I had an eating disorder. I used to vomit after meals. It is not something I am proud of. But I tell you what, a lot of people used to come up to me and tell me how great I looked. And I was on the cover of every magazine with them saying, 'Lily is looking amazing - look how much weight she has lost!' I thought I looked good.
"It was great to try on clothes and walk out of the shop feeling a million dollars. When you have been a victim of people saying the complete opposite, you want more of it.
"I wasn't happy, I really wasn't. I would like to be the skinniest, mini-est person in the world, but I know I can't do that without being unhappy. I like my food."
And the star has no plans to stay in the public eye forever - insisting she wants a quaint family life rather than a long lasting career like Madonna.
She adds, "My idea of hell would doing this in 25 years' time. I don't want to be like Madonna - look at her, she's mental. No offence but that is not what drives me. I want to get married and have kids and make sandwiches cutting the crusts off."
