25 year old Pop Star Lily Allen has revealed she once fought an eating disorder, making herself sick after meals at its height.

The singer opened up about the disorder and losing her baby when 6months pregnant in a new documentary about her fashion shop to be shown next week.

In the show which covers her shop she jointly owns with sister Sarah Owen, Lilly says,  ”There was a point last summer where 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 and 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.

“But I wasn’t happy, I really wasn’t.”

The majority of the show was filmed before Lily’s miscarriage, but the film crews returned for a while after the distressing time. “It was a really long battle – and I think that kind of thing changes a person.”

Lily is engaged to Sam Cooper, after he proposed on Christmas Day and revealed that she ended her successful music career because she hated it.

“My idea of hell would be doing this in 25 years’ time.”

Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags starts on Channel 4 at 10pm next Tuesday
