Speaking on EastEnders’ spin-off show Secrets from the Square in 2020, Letitia spoke out on the cruel comments she had received over the years about her looks.
She revealed: ‘I had quite a lot of horrible things said about me: “She’s too fat, the other actors complain they can’t fit on the same set with her”‘.
During her six year break from EastEnders the actress decided to focus on her health, enlisting her EastEnders co-star Charlie Brooks and Natalie Cassidy’s trainer.
She also released a fitness DVD in 2008, dubbed ‘Letitia Dean’s Lean Routine.

While Letitia has also previously admitted to trying a range of diets, explaining to Daily Record in 2009: ‘I’d go on fad diets like Atkins or I’d only eat eggs. The effect was great, even if my breath did smell foul.
‘I’d lose a stone in a couple of weeks, but gradually I’d slip back into my old ways and put it all on again.’
Sharon is one of EastEnders original characters and appeared in the very first episode in February 1985.
She was introduced as the adopted daughter of Den and Angie Watts and later became the landlady of the Queen Victoria.
