CORONATION Street's Sue Cleaver has dropped three stone since switching to a Mediterranean diet.
The 55-year-old actress, who plays Eileen Grimshaw in the ITV soap, has wowed viewers as she dropped from a size 14 to a 12 in recent months.
A Mediterranean diet is high in foods which are good for you, and low in naughty foods, such as those with a high sugar content.
It's high in vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, beans, cereals, grains, fish, and unsaturated fats such as olive oil.
It usually includes a low intake of meat and dairy foods.
This diet has been proven to be beneficial for the heart, even helping to reduce the risk of heart disease.
A source told Woman magazine: "Sue was always a self-confessed foodie, who admitted that over-indulgence was her Achilles Heel. Now everything’s changed.
"Sue’s in her mid 50s so it was a no-brainer that cutting down on certain things was what she had to do.
"She’s in this for the long game and wants to live a long, happy and healthy life.
"Losing the weight and keeping it off was not only important for Sue, but also the men in her life – her partner and son Elliot."
Back in 2011, Sue had to be rushed to hospital for treatment after collapsing on the Coronation Street set due to her diabetes.
A source told The Sun at the time: "Sue was looking pretty off at around 9am just as we were getting things ready for filming.
"Then all of a sudden she just seemed to collapse and everyone was panicking.
"The on-site medics were called and they were very quick to get to her.
"She informed them that she was having some kind of attack brought on by her diabetes and they agreed that that's what it looked like.
"An ambulance was called and she was taken to hospital just to be on the safe side."
