Jennie McAlpine has revealed how she managed to drop a whopping three dress sizes since first stepping onto the cobbles of Coronation Street back in 2001.
The 37 year old, who portrays Fiz Brown in the popular ITV soap opera, explained that she got into shape simply by using her "common sense".
The actress, who recently shared a peak inside her stylish home that she lives in with her husband and two kids, said she followed a healthy diet and without too many restrictions.
"It's not rocket science!" she insisted before explaining that the way to go about weight loss is by trusting your own instinct about what is good and bad for you.
"I don’t go in for all the diet plans and worrying yourself silly over how much you weigh," she said, adding: “Ice cream is bad, salad is good – it’s not rocket science."
The star continued: "If you eat more of the good stuff and take more exercise then you’ll lose weight.”
Jennie, who previously spoke out about returning to work after welcoming her daughter, said she didn't "over worry" about her diet and is happy with the result of her efforts after dropping three dress sizes.
She went on: “It’s really not worth beating yourself up over it. I know there’s pressure in this business, but I can honestly say I’ve never felt it myself.
“I’m not saying I let it wash over me because of course I’m aware of it, but I don’t let it bother me."
Despite this, last year Jennie spoke exclusively to OK! about the trolling she's experienced in the past, where she's been called "fat".

When asked if she's suffered from hurtful trolls criticising her online, she explained: "Yes I have. Things like, 'You’re fat' and, 'You can’t act'. When I returned from maternity leave, people wrote, 'Why has she come back?' It’s really not nice.
"Some of the comments you get on the online newspaper articles are horrid. Reading those is a road to somewhere you don’t want to be, so I stay away from them."
Jennie went on to tell OK!: "It’s really easy to say, 'Ignore it', but there are times in our lives when we’ve lost people or we’ve just become mums and we’re more vulnerable.

"I go on social media but I don’t think I love it and I hope it becomes extinct by the time my children have grown up."
