Martine McCutcheon has been a firm favourite on television screens for years.
The 45-year-old actress is best known for her roles in Love Actually and EastEnders.
But how has she managed to stay in shape? Here’s everything you need to know about Martine‘s weight journey…
Martine McCutcheon’s weight loss journey
The former soap star has always been open about her weight loss with fans.
Back in 2017, Martine revealed she lost a stone after embarking on the Cambridge Weight Plan diet.
Speaking to Hello!, she said: “I’ve spent so long fighting to feel healthy again, I didn’t want to do anything too drastic that was going to make me feel lousy.
“But after having Rafferty I found it so tough to lose my baby weight and that does start to affect your self-esteem.”
Martine then explained she began following the popular weight loss method.
The plan is designed for a rapid and drastic weight loss through low-calorie shakes, soups and snack bars.
As a result, the actress went on to lose a stone in weight and 21 inches around her body.
How has Martine’s health affected her weight?
Like many women, Martine’s weight has fluctuated over the years.
However, the star particularly struggled after battling a number of health problems.
Martine was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome ME and Lyme’s disease in 2011.
On a previous Instagram post, she explained: “My weight loss was a tiny bit slower than the average person.
“To be honest, I expected that as many diets/food plans didn’t work for me at all as the lymes disease and ME can really play havoc with how your system works.”

The star is happily settled with husband Jack McManus, 37, and son Rafferty, six.
Nowadays, Martine, who played Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders, often shares glimpses of her life on social media.
