Turner's Weight Worries

TINA TURNER had great concerns about promoting her latest album - because she feared she'd put on weight over the Christmas holidays.

The SIMPLY THE BEST singer, 65, has emerged from retirement for the release of her greatest hits album ALL THE BEST, which hit American record stores yesterday (02FEB05).

And she admits the idea of returning to the spotlight after such a long time away prompted concerns over her figure.

She says, "I had started doing Pilates about a year ago, but I thought that over Christmas I had probably gained a few pounds. But I didn't.

"I started to put on my work clothes, and I said to my boyfriend, 'Look! I didn't diet! I didn't stop my champagne!' So I think the training has worked."
