“This was April after my injury… vs today at almost the end of 12 week program with #EvilSteve@upfitnesslive @upfitnesswomen …”

Praising her personal trainer, Catherine added: “Super excited to continue on my fitness journey. Feeling strong.”

Just three weeks ago, Catherine revealed the motive behind her exercise programme.

Citing her three-year-old son Alfie, she said: “It’s not about ‘perfect’ it’s about being the best I can be. For me, my family and my job.

“My number one priority in life is being on this earth for as long as possible for my son.

“We get one body- I’m gonna take care of it!! Strength from the inside out.

“Knowledge, sustainability, endorphins… doing things I never dreamed my body could achieve.”

Catherine added: “Week 9… and I’ve never felt better- physically or mentally.”

But keeping fit isn’t a new thing for Catherine.

The actress, who until earlier this month played Eva Price in Coronation Street, has worked hard to keep in shape for years.

Speaking in July 2017, the actress revealed that she was a size 22 when she was a teenager. Aged 18, she weighed 15 stone.

In an interview with Best magazine, Catherine said she would binge eat junk food behind her parents’ back.

But after kicking the bad habit, and eating only home-cooked healthy meals instead, she had slimmed down to a size 12 by 19.

Catherine told the magazine: “When I look at pictures of myself from that time, it doesn’t look like me. I was a different person.

“I actually keep a picture from when I was big on my phone to remind myself just how far I’ve come.”

Good work, Cath.
