Meet Maxine Jones

Maxine is Lorraine Kelly's Zumba instructor and says her life changed when she left her job in banking to pursue teaching the popular dancing and fitness classes.

She says: "It has given me so so much on every level. I’ve built up my classes, some people never miss one, others come when they can, either way, every single one of them smile throughout the entire class and leaves feeling uplifted, stress free and most of all, like they’ve accomplished something.

"Every week someone tells me they’ve lost weight, they can see and feel a difference, they’re getting into a pair of jeans they’ve not worn in years, I love that, that is what drives me."
