Best known for playing Beth Tinker in the ITV soap, Lisa has revealed that she feels self-conscious about the way she looks.

She said: "I've kept a low profile in the past because of my poor body image, I was never confident with my body weight and didn't like how I looked. I didn't want to be in magazines because the other girls at Corrie are really slim and pretty, and there's a lot of pressure."

She said: "I hold myself back a lot. I'm a bag of nerves. I'm insecure. I think people will laugh at me. But there are lots of women my age, perimenopausal women like me, who are not body confident. I’m doing it for them."

I've kept a low profile in the past because of my poor body image, I was never confident with my body weight and didn't like how I looked.

Lisa is partnered with professional skater Tom Naylor for the current series of Dancing On Ice.

The actress was a competitive ice skater as a child, but she stopped skating when she was nine after suffering a nasty accident.

Lisa recently revealed that she was left "fuming" at her Corrie co-star Andy Whyment after he failed to tell her he was taking part in the last series of I'm A Celebrity.
