Linda Robson shows off her new slimline figure after losing more than two stone over six months after cutting out sugar from her diet.

Since making a January resolution to ditch the sweet stuff, Linda has shed an impressive 28lb, saying that the changes had become ‘easier’ to stick to over the eight week period.

Speaking to The Sun, the Loose Women panellist said: “I’ve been doing it over six months now and I’ve lost two stone.”

“It’s much easier now, my husband made me a risotto the other day and he put a whole glass of white wine in it and I couldn’t eat it, it tasted too much of the wine.”

The 59-year old has been steadily losing weight and she’s really happy with the results so far.

One of the main reasons for Linda making changes to her eating and drinking habits is after doctors told her she was susceptible to diabetes.

For the sake of her two-granddaughters, she decided to go tee-total, making a conscious decision to cut down on alcohol, after previously admitting that she used to drink a bottle of wine a night.

“There are 11 bottles sitting there staring at me, which will be consumed once I start eating sugar again!” she laughed.

Back in January 2017, the actress said to her fellow panellists that she’d decided to overhaul her unhealthy habits after it was explained during an earlier show that she used to eat the sugary equivalent of 100 doughnuts every month – and just a few days into the process, she’d already noticed the difference.

“Mark weighed me, because I didn’t want to know how much I weighed,” she said at the time. “I still don’t know how much I weigh but I’ve lost between six and seven pounds.”

“The wine belly’s gone down quite a lot.”

“It’s not as hard as it was but I’m still struggling, because it’s just like that one thing that you have in your hand. So now I have sparkling water and a mint and a little bit of juice.”

“What I do is I distract myself. We’ve found something really good to watch – The Crown on Netflix – so we sit and watch that and then I find something else.”

But while she said that the switch had been hard, the TV star confirmed that she’d already seen the effect the lifestyle change had on her dress size.

“It’s the first time for a while I’ve been in a size 14,’ she said. ‘I bought this blouse yesterday and it’s a size 14.”
