Lisa Riley, 42, has undergone a huge weight loss transformation in recent years.
The former Emmerdale star has lost an impressive 12st, and slimmed down seven dress sizes.
A few years ago Lisa made the decision to become healthier, and as a result has started shedding the pounds.
Lisa has written about the secrets behind her incredible weight loss in her book Lisa Riley’s Honesty Diet.
“It’s all so so so worth it. My new nickname is a ‘Squatter’. However I do have my own home, I’m not living in unused wasteland.”
Lisa decided to lose weight after she lost her mum Cath to cancer in 2012.
The same year she took part in Strictly Come Dancing, and really started moving.
She was the 10th celebrity to be voted off the contest, and lost an impressive 4st in the process.
Then, instead of going back to her old ways she kept up the exercise.
Lisa started doing Zumba, yoga and going for walks.
She also ditched alcohol in a bid to lose weight.
Lisa told the Mirror: “Now I don’t think I’ll ever drink again. I say never, but at the moment I don’t think I will.”
She also explained to The Sun how she had managed to shed the weight: “Listen, I could eat a family-sized trifle all by myself. And crisps were my heroin! I still miss them.
“Not to mention being able to polish off a bottle of Malbec easily. But I radically changed my eating habits.
“I cut out carbs and now eat lots of fresh fruit and veg.”
After putting in many hours of exercise and changing her diet she dropped from a UK size 30 to a size 12.
