Ricki-Lee Coulter stars on the cover of WHO's annual Half Their Size issue, on sale now.

Strolling around WHO's photo shoot on December 15 in a skimpy bikini while snacking on a large Anzac biscuit, Ricki-Lee Coulter is radiating joy and confidence.

At 29, the 1.8m Gold Coast-raised singer has plenty to be happy about: a new album, a wedding to plan with fiancé (and manager) Rich Harrison, 33, and a fit and fantastic body that she has worked hard for.

"That amazing feeling you get when you exercise? I'm living with that every day," Coulter tells WHO.

After tipping the scales at nearly 100kg, the singer had a wake-up call onstage.

Now she's 30kg lighter and looking better than ever, thanks to clean eating, exercise, and the love of her "incredible" fiancé.

"I completely transformed the way I used to live, and I feel amazing. There's no turning back," said the 68kg performer, who competed on Dancing With The Stars this year and starts every day with a run.

"I tend to float between 65 and 70kg, depending on how hard-core I'm being. I've got my wedding coming up and I want to be the hottest bride ever!"
