Gemma Atkinson wants to “help people reset” their health after summer.

The former ‘Hollyoaks’ star is teaming up with high street wellness store Holland and Barrett - who are launching Resetember, a month of deals - to help people get back into better habits after she herself as struggled “to get motivated” after an indulgent summer.

The 37-year-old star said: “In the past I have found myself stuck in a rut and struggling to get motivated, but I was fortunate to be able to take a step back to prioritise and reset my wellness, which has had an all-round positive impact. Knowing how great this can leave you feeling, I want to help people reset and find healthy habits that work for them this Resetember. Simply follow me and Holland and Barrett for daily tips, advice and motivation.”

The initiative with Gemma - who has three-year-old daughter Mia with her fiance Gorka Marquez - comes after research found 88 per cent of British people want to prioritise their wellbeing after “perhaps over-doing the summer celebrations” post the COVID-19 restrictions.

Dr Subashini M, the brand’s director of Science, Health Wellness said: “It’s been a particularly special last few months with Jubilee festivities, the return of live events and festivals, not to mention holiday fun, so we can be forgiven for perhaps over-doing the summer celebrations! We know people are going to be using September as a time to reset their health and wellness, and with our understanding of the resolutions people are making we have designed a month of nutritional advice, motivation and deals to help people get their wellness on track.”

The survey found that 37 per cent of people found creating routines helpful while 32 per cent of people relied on consistency to ensure they reach their goals. Relying on a support system was also a top method, with 28 per cent of people saying their family was the best and eight per cent opting for co-workers.

Holland and Barrett is offering deals throughout Resetember on select items as well as a daily tips to support people looking to reset their wellness this September: https://www.hollandandbarrett.com/the-health-hub/healthy-lifestyle/
