Former Coronation Street actress Katie McGlynn, revealed she put on over a stone during her final months on the ITV soap where she played Sinead Tinker, but the actress has since slimmed right down. How did she do it?

She continues to stun fans with her social media posts that show off her incredible slimmer figure, and she revealed she dropped that stone in the space of 12 weeks.

She began a 12-week programme at the Ultimate Performance Gym in Manchester, which got her on the right track with her diet and fitness.

In fact, it made her fall in love with exercising and she regularly goes to the gym even after she finished the programme.

But experts suggest it’s all about diet when it comes to kick-starting a weight loss journey.

Katie admitted she was gorging on snacks between takes and soon realised she was buying clothes two sizes bigger than usual.

“It was such a sad story to be taking part in,” she said of her final storyline where Sinead sadly passed away after battling cancer.

“I was crying in nearly every scene, and quite often I’d eat cake to cheer me up.

“I was snacking on biscuits in the green room, or eating flapjacks made by the crew when I was exhausted.”

She recalled she was “eating so much sugar” in between scenes, and was having a lot of diet fizzy drinks.

“I was usually between a size eight to 10 when ordering clothes, but I was creeping up to a size 12, which isn’t bad at all – but it was bigger than I usually am,” she said.

“I wasn’t fuelling myself properly and I’d put on over a stone.”

So after she bid farewell to the cobbles in 2019, she set her sights on getting back into shape and slimmed down considerably in no time.

She said: “I was there three times a week with a personal trainer, but it was simple to follow the diet.

“There were no shakes, or packets of this or that, just good fats, like salmon, eggs and nut butter.

“I don’t eat red meat and I’ve been having oats at night because they help me sleep.

“After my programme is finished, I won’t stop. I’m going to carry on with it, because I have a taste for fitness now!” she told Closer.

The TV star previously revealed that as her on-screen alter-ego’s storyline progressed, she was still “mourning” her and couldn’t find the time to cook healthy meals.

“I was so tired when I got home that I’d order a takeaway,” she told The Sunday Mirror.

“On set, there were a lot of chocolates, flap jacks and treats flying around.”

But it seems all her hard work has paid off now she’s ditched the snacking and takeaways.
