Miranda Hart takes Holly and Philip through their paces on ITV’s This Morning



A new slim and toned Miranda Hart made a TV appearance on This Morning last week promoting her new fun fitness DVD just in time for Christmas.

We all know Miranda Hart. She is a much loved female comedian and  star of her own comedy sitcom, Miranda. We are used to seeing her on screen bumbling around in her shop, falling over, getting herself into bizarre, amusing and always awkward situations and of course fending off her embarrassing and overbearing mother.

However it seems a new side to Miranda Hart has emerged as the star appeared on This Morning looking slim, healthy and toned, as she talked Holly and Philip through her new fitness DVD which to be fair is kept quite Miranda-esq involving a lot of rather outrageous wiggling around and a set of maracas.

It was on Wednesday mornings show that the comedian came in to promote her DVD –a perfect gift for Christmas for anyone who is looking to shed a few pounds after the festive season. The DVD, appropriately named Maracattack features a soundtrack of classic disco tunes to get you in the party mood and inspire you  to keep moving.

It certainly seems to have worked for Miranda who looked slimmer than ever on the show. Miranda is a star who has always been one to use her weight to comedic effect, never shying away from the fact that she has always been a larger lady. However perhaps turning 40 this year has inspired her to slim down and shape up for the new year.

Miranda presented Philip and Holly with traditional 80’s workout neon headbands before they began the workout demonstrating its effectiveness by dancing around the This Morning studio, maracas in hand.
It seems that this idea of making exercise fun and avoiding the traditional workout video exercises of squats and lunges or complicated high cardio dance moves appealed to the star and is sure to appeal to the viewers at home as well.

Miranda demonstrated how she kept the DVD fresh and interesting with moves such as the ‘Hawaiin’ and the ‘Crazy crab’ you are sure to have a few laughs as you exercise to this DVD!

The This Morning duo certainly seemed enthused as they danced around, though perhaps somewhat demurely (Holly kept her heels on) compared  to Miranda who showed off her new svelte silhouette in a beige, black and brown jumper and some slim fit black trousers, and seemed full of beans  as she worked out.

Viewers will also be treated to a bonus of 30 minutes worth of hilarious comedy sketches as well as the exercises should they choose to buy the DVD. A great way perhaps to relax and unwind after working out!

It certainly seems to take a fresh approach to exercise making it easy and fun and combining it with lots and lots of laughs as well. We think perhaps Miranda is onto something here and with all the Christmas feasting approaching anything that helps shift a few pounds can’t be too bad!
