Britney Spears has revealed she has lost weight in coronavirus lockdown because she misses her boyfriend Sam Asghari so much.

While many of us are concerned about what our bodies might look like post lockdown (step away from the homemade Pret cookies), Britney Spears has revealed she’s managed to shed the pounds.

But not because she’s been particularly trying to lose weight. Turns out the cause of her quarantine weight loss is actually heartache thanks to missing her boyfriend as they self-isolate separately.

The 38-year-old singer shared a snap of herself on Instagram, rocking a long-sleeved floral crop top and revealing that she’s dropped so many pounds that none of her clothes now fit.

“I have been quarantining since I got back from Louisiana weeks ago… So basically I haven’t seen my boyfriend @samasghari in what feels like a lifetime!!!!” she explained in the accompanying caption.

She went on to reveal that pining for her other half seems to have had an unexpected impact in that she’s slimmed down to the point where her clothes no longer fit.

“Now none of my pants or shorts fit,” she revealed. “Guess that’s what missing someone can do.”

She went on to ask her followers if anyone else was experiencing the same.

And it’s fair to say that though some were able to relate on the missing people front, the losing weight side effect, not so much.

“Can’t relate queen but you look good!” one fan wrote.

“ALL OF US WITHOUT YOU,” someone else commented.

“I've gained enough weight for us both babe,” another joked

The Toxic singer also used her Instagram platform to inform her followers that she had accidentally burnt down her gym.

Sharing an image of her workout routine with fans on the star admitted she only had two pieces of equipment and one mirror left after the incident involving candles, which happened at the end of 2019.

“It was an accident, but yes I burnt it down, she wrote in the accompanying caption. I walked past the door to the gym and flames BOOM.”

She went on to say that the alarm went off and no body was hurt, but the fire had caused her to lose some equipment.

“But it could be much worse so I’m grateful. Pssss I like working out better outside anyways,” she added.
