Emmerdale's Laura Norton 'no dessert' rule after three-stone weight loss

Serious willpower!

Whenever anybody in the public eye loses a significant amount of weight, it's natural to ask how they did it.

For Emmerdale actress Laura Norton - who plays troubled Kerry Wyatt - her three-stone weight loss is down to a drastic change in her approach to eating.

The star, 36, admitted that she hadn't eaten a dessert in eight years.

Do you know, in the eight years that I have been [on Emmerdale], I have never once had a pudding.

Appearing on this morning's edition of Lorraine (1.10.19), she told host Lorraine Kelly when she was asked how she lost all her weight: "I just cut all the rubbish out and exercised," she said.

"Do you know, in the eight years that I have been [on Emmerdale], I have never once had a pudding.

"I can't. It's just a slippery slope," she admitted.

In an earlier interview with The Sun, Laura admitted to downing two large bottles of Coke a day on set.

"I had been addicted since I was a teenager," she admitted.

"At its worst I used to drink two two-litre bottles of Coke a day. I know now how much sugar is in it.

"But, when you are addicted, you don’t realise how much you are getting through. In the end, it was my dad who pointed it out."

Elsewhere, Laura's Emmerdale co-star, Anthony Quinlan is quitting the soap, a report claims.

The 34-year-old actor has decided it is time to goodbye to the Dales after playing Pete Barton for six years on the ITV soap as he apparently wants to pursue other roles and potentially a reality show.

A source told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "Anthony has loved his time on Emmerdale but he is really keen to try and make a name for himself away from just soaps, and is looking at auditions.

"He says he would be up for doing a reality show too, like the jungle or Strictly, but with a full-on filming schedule for Emmerdale that's quite tricky."

Anthony joined Emmerdale in 2013 as John and Moira Barton's nephew Pete.
