In recent months, Katie has spoken candidly about her struggle with comfort eating during her time on show, revealing a busy filming schedule left her little time to train or cook healthy meals at home.

The stunner has dropped one dress size since starting a 12-week transformation challenge at Ultimate Performance Fitness in Manchester and admitted to ‘finally feeling herself again’.

Katie said: ‘I am so happy with my overall physical and mental well being after this transformation. I’ve lost a dress size, I’ve gained more muscle, I’m getting stronger in the gym. I feel like myself again, finally. I feel like back-to-normal Katie.’

With the help of an elite fitness trainer, Katie’s training focused on superset workouts, prioritising compound exercises and bigger muscle groups to get the maximum results.

Outside of the gym, Katie focused on increasing her activity levels, hitting 12,000-15,000 steps per day while maintaining a simple diet of fibre-rich vegetables and healthy fats.

While filming her scenes as Sinead on Coronation Street, the actress admitted to feeling ‘very down about her weight’.

She said: ‘Before the transformation, I don’t want to say I was depressed, but I did feel very down about my weight, mentally and physically I was tired. I didn’t feel like myself whatsoever.

The star added: ‘I felt sluggish. I felt really dowdy and frumpy, whereas now I just feel more myself again. I’ve got more energy, I’ve got a lot more confidence in general’

Katie admitted to confiding in her trainer Olivia about her emotional and physical state at the time and said it was her who helped her through all the ‘obstacles’. 

She said:  ‘As an actor, it can be a stressful life. It’s really good, but I felt really emotionally drained after my Corrie scenes. I had not realised how it had affected me emotionally. Olivia really helped me through that’. 

Since starting the challenge, Katie admits she has learned so much and insists she ‘wont go back to her old habits’, and while ‘life is about balance’ she is ‘ definitely going to be carrying on with her training and nutrition.
