Nadine Coyle is reportedly keeping a very close eye on her intake at the moment - to the extent of weighing food in a restaurant.

A source told the Sun that the Girls Aloud star pulled a set of digital scales out of her oversized handbag during a dinner at The Ivy in London. According to the onlooker, she ordered a piece of plain fish, without vegetables or sauce, but was unhappy about how much arrived: “It was the oddest thing I’ve ever seen.

“I couldn’t believe it when she just whipped out the mini scales and put them in the middle of the table to weigh bits of her fish.

“Even more bizarre was the fact that she acted as though it was the most normal thing in the world.

“Everyone was staring at her but she just carried on weighing her food.”
