Corrie actress Kym Marsh has revealed that she’s dropped a staggering five pounds in just over a week, following her sudden split from ex Matt Baker.

The 41-year-old mum-of-three revealed in her OK! column that she had begun to feel “uncomfortable”, after putting on a few pounds.

She said, ‘I’d put on some weight and wanted to get it off as I felt uncomfortable in my clothes.’

And, sharing the results of her amazing five-pound weight loss in just over a week, she revealed that she’s now just over nine stone – a weight she feels much better about.

Kym admitted, ‘I know when I’m at a good weight and I feel good now – I’m now 9st 2lb and a size 8.

‘I feel like I’m in a positive frame of mind at the moment.’ She also maintained that she is ‘delighted’ with her slimmed down figure.

The confession comes just weeks after the Corrie star revealed that she and beau Matt Baker had parted ways, after two years together.

Kym addressed the news of the split herself, after mounting speculation in the press. She said, ‘Sadly, the rumours are true.

‘We still care for each other, we’ll stay friends and I’m sure we’ll be a part of each other’s lives in the future. Now we each just want to focus on our families, our work and our friends as we move forward.’

So just how has she managed to shed the pounds so fast?

In the past, the actress revealed that she relies on frequent, 20-minute workouts to help her lose weight and tone up. Kym Marsh also shared that she follows a diet that closely resembles the Paleo diet. The Paleo diet attempts to take eating habits back to theSttone age, meaning people following it eat plenty of raw and unprocessed foods like lean proteins, fruit, veg, and nuts.

However, Kym isn’t too strict, allowing herself a ‘cheat day’ once a week. She confessed, “I have one a week and that’s important to me. If I didn’t have it, there’d be more of a chance I’d fail on my diet and I’d have nothing to look forward to at the end of the week.

“My guilty pleasures vary – some weeks I’ll be craving chocolate and the next week it’ll be pizza. I eat whatever it is I fancy at that point and that keeps me motivated.”

We think you look fab Kym – well done!
