The Cheeky Girls, Monica (left) & Gabriela Irimia, in the throes of anorexia in 2003
'Don't believe celebrities who say they are naturally skinny yet look so thin that their bones stick out,' she says firmly. 'They're lying.' (Monica Irimia)
"By 2004, Monica weighed just 6st 9lb and Gabriela 7st 2lb. "
"The twins also developed a fine down all over their bodies [lanugo] and their skin took on yellowish tinge...their yellow-tinged skin could have indicated kidney or liver problems or simply general unhealthiness."
"As the Cheeky Girls, the twins toured the world but remember nothing about the countries where they performed.
'Our brains were not functioning properly - we always felt dizzy,' says Monica. 'We felt barely alive yet somehow, like machines, got through the touring.'"
