There’s no denying that Catherine Tyldesley has transformed her body with a healthy diet and regular exercise after slimming from a size 22 to a size 10.
But the actress revealed she’s not immune to the dreaded Christmas bloat – sharing a photo of her swollen belly on Instagram.
Stripping to her underwear, Catherine confessed her bloating was due to straying from her normally strict diet throughout the festive period.
Sharing the photo on to the Instagram account she shares with personal trainer husband Tom Pitfield, the caption read: “Mrs P @auntiecath17 has a very sensitive tummy.
“She eats super clean , so when she does eat naughty treats… this happens!!”
“She’s also lactose intolerant. We will be posting lots of tips over the next few days.”

They added: “YOU are not alone!!! We can help you!!!”
Catherine also shared a side by side shot of her bloated tummy next to a trim bikini shot.
She told fans: “I personally am severely intolerant to cows milk- I look around 6 months pregnant upon consumption.’
She added that drinking water was her “golden rule”.
Catherine – who was a size 22 at 18 years old – and Tom wed in 2016 and often share the healthy meals they eat and the intense workouts they do to stay trim.
But the Coronation Street star admitted Christmas is the one time she lets her diet slip.
