  • The woman who's credited with whipping Pippa Middleton into shape will release a guide to pilates

    When Pippa Middleton strolled down the aisle in a figure-hugging bridesmaid dress behind her sister at the royal wedding, everyone sat up and took notice of her stunning figure.

    Pippa recently revealed that regular trips to the pilates studio were the secret to her slimline shape, and such is the power of the Middleton sisters’ endorsement her instructor, Margot Campbell, has now bagged herself a book deal.

    Margot, who runs the Pilates on the Go centre in west London, has signed a lucrative publishing deal with Hodder to write a step-by-step guide to the body conditioning fitness system.

    Pippa recently confessed that she keeps in tip-top shape thanks to regular pilates classes that are a ‘weekly necessity’ to keep her ‘fit, happy and energised’.


    She even left a statement on Margot’s studio website, hailing the low-key workout as a ‘wonderful escape’ from her whirlwind London life, adding that it helps her feel ‘calm, refreshed and invigorated’.

    The 27-year-old also claimed attending weekly classes improved her core strength and posture in just a ‘few months,’ and whipped her into shape in time for William and Kate’s royal wedding.

    ‘I couldn’t recommend Margot more highly as an instructor,’ Miss Middleton wrote in the testimony.

    The statement reportedly caught the attention of several publishing houses and caused a bidding war. However, it’s Hodder that signed up Margot, and they’ve already confirmed that the guide will hit book shop shelves in January 2012.

    With Pippa’s figure now one of the most coveted in the world, we can expect a stampede of customers and a guaranteed future best-seller. We’re joining the waiting list now.
