She is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper’s Hot TV column as saying: “One of the tops they put me in as a costume the other day I’d just bought for myself, worryingly.”

In May, Lorraine admitted she would like to see some love drama for Karen.

And asked if the soap would ever bring in Keanu’s father, Lorraine said: “Yeah, I hope so. I think, at the moment, the Taylors have got enough on their plate.

“But I reckon that is probably, I’m guessing, in the pipeline.

“And Bernie’s dad as well. And Riley and Chatham’s dad! God, how many dads? They’re all different.

“Bernie’s dad is different. Chatham and Riley’s dad is different. And Keanu’s dad is different. Obviously Mitch is Chantelle and Keegan’s dad. Four fathers.”

Lorraine’s clothing concerns come after Coronation Street star Beverley Callard recently admitted her character Liz McDonald’s “unforgiving” wardrobe used to make her feel “more self-conscious”.

She said: “I lacked confidence very much and I had very low self-esteem and the clothes I had to wear for Liz were very unforgiving.

“It was silly things like that which would make me feel more self-conscious and I think that could be a part of it [mental health issues] but, of course, it is not the cause.”
