While we’ve been afforded time to reflect and work on ourselves during the lockdown, some of our favourite celebrities have been serving inspirational body transformations after putting in the hard work.

Take a look at some of the body transformations that have had tongues wagging on the internet.

Busiswa Gqulu

If you’ve been lurking on Busiswa’s Instagram stories and timeline then you would’ve noticed she’s been exercising throughout the lockdown. The singer recently made an epic reveal in a tight black jumpsuit showcasing her new figure.


Jamie-Lee Domburg

Talk about post-pregnancy body goals! After being probed by media personality Katlego Maboe to join in on the 21-day-challenge live on Expresso early January, Jamie-Lee told YOU that she’s fallen in love with her new healthier lifestyle and doesn’t intend on stopping any time soon.


Zoleka Mandela

Zoleka’s weight loss journey has been amazing to see as she’s been sharing her progress each step of the way. She went from weighing 87.6kg to recently revealing that she’s lost 17kg within five months since embarking on her journey. She also doesn’t shy away from showing off her six-pack either.

Boity Thulo

Speaking to DRUM Magazine in May this year, Boity vowed that she’s working on getting her body back after picking up some weight.

“People who say it’s ‘a little bit of weight gain’ are being kind – I’ve gained a lot of weight. It’s something I’m very insecure about. I even got rid of my scale when I saw how much weight I gained,” the actress said.

Since embarking on her weight loss journey, she’s shed 7kg and is determined to lose six more kilograms.


Adele’s weight loss took social media by storm. The singer recently had fans gushing over her 44kg weight loss in an Instagram post when she congratulated Beyoncé on her Black is King project.

Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson declared 2020 as a “year of health” for her as she set a goal of losing 75kg by the end of the year. The Australian actress has been sharing her progress with her fans.
