She recently embarked on a new health and fitness regime, ahead of her stint on ITV’s Dancing On Ice.
And Brooke Vincent showed off the results of her healthy lifestyle on Monday, by sharing an impressive before and after shot of her 12 week transformation to Instagram.
The Coronation Street star, 25, proudly displayed her newly-toned frame in a skimpy grey sports bra beside a snap of her fuller figure – and revealed to followers she had dropped a stone in just 12 weeks, after giving up smoking and junk food.

Brooke was the picture of confidence in the after shot, which saw her playfully point down to her lean physique.
Clad in just a grey sports bra and gym leggings, the brunette left her enviably toned stomach and tiny waist on show, as she beamed with pride for the camera.
Sharing the image beside one taken twelve weeks ago, the impressive difference was clear for followers to see – with Brooke owing the transformation to a newly gruelling fitness regime.

Having completely overhauled her lifestyle, she wrote in the caption: ‘This picture is no way the finished product. It’s just what happens when you cut out all of the rubbish you eat.’
She then confessed that giving up cigarettes had been the biggest life-changer, adding: ‘I’m not going to lie I’ve not been perfect, but taking out my smoking was the biggest health improvement I could have done.
‘I never thought I would able to give up, I really NEEDED something to turn to. And now that I’ve actually completed it, I’m so proud of myself.
‘I never thought I would be able to give up’: She admitted giving up cigarettes had been the biggest life-changer, and that she is ‘so proud of herself’ for ditching them (pictured in 2010)
‘Mainly from the smoking aspect, but more so because I never thought I was strong enough to take something so seriously and stick it out… This is my 12 week transformation.’
She went on to reveal she had shed a stone in just three months, and was able to fit into a dress she bought at the age of 19.
While she oozed confidence in the photo, she also addressed the negative affect of social media on young women – and urged her followers not to believe everything they see online.

She said: ‘Honestly why put an unflattering/’FAT’ picture of yourself up?.. You don’t need to because ‘social media’ is the place where everybody makes everybody makes out everything is so perfect.
‘It’s in the comfort of having filters,effects, airbrushing tools that somehow we feel most at home, about showing everybody what we look like, when in reality it’s much different..’
Before wrapping up her lengthy speech by writing: ‘Girls… don’t be so hard on yourself.. because even the girls in the magazines don’t look like the girls in the magazines…’

Appearing on Loose Women last week, the beauty confessed she was incredibly nervous for her first go on the ice – despite weeks of gruelling training sessions.
She said: ‘I left home yesterday to travel down and my boyfriend dropped me to the station. I was like, “Please don’t let them take me! Say I’m poorly!”
‘Anything can happen [during the show]. I don’t know what’s gonna happen… I could fall over. As I said before, I don’t know I’m falling until I’ve fallen.’
