EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison stuns as she shows off her incredible weightloss at a festival
EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison, 56, looks worlds away from her on-screen character Heather Trott as she shows off weight loss in glamor dress at festival
Cheryl Fergison looked sensational as she attended the Tatton Park Pop Up Festival in Knutsford, Cheshire on Friday in a glam dress.
The former EastEnders star, 56, looked worlds away from her former laundromat assistant character Heather Trott as she showed off her weight loss.
She seemed cheerful as she took in the festival vibe and styled her dark brown locks into their natural curls – and Heather’s signature straight bangs and Alice band were nowhere to be seen.

Cheryl opted for a radiant makeup palette while keeping her look simple in a pair of flat beige sandals.
The star first appeared in EastEnders in 2007 and was involved in a number of storylines, including her marriage to Minty Peterson and having a baby with Darren Miller.
Heather was later murdered in 2012 when Ben Mitchell hit her on the head with a picture frame.

Earlier this year, Cheryl insisted her toyboy husband Yassine el Jamouni is not a “gold digger” and that 11 years later they are still happily married.
She exchanged vows with the rarely seen store clerk, 35, in 2011 — but their relationship is plagued with doubts.
She went on to claim that the naysayers are sexist and that they would not question Mick Jagger, 78, about his union with ballerina Melanie Hamrick, 35.

She said the mirror: ‘The world has become so cynical. People think it must be a scam, it must be a problem. But I say, “It doesn’t have to be anything. Just stop it!”
“It seems to be pretty cool for guys like Mick Jagger to date younger. And it seems okay that they have someone else two years later.
“Well, we don’t care. It really is absolute water from a duck’s back to us now. I just feel sorry for them, that they have to criticize our lives.’

Despite her on-screen character Heather Trott being unlucky in love, the actress enjoyed a whirlwind romance with her second husband after meeting him online in 2010.
She soon flew to his hometown of Agadir and they were paired up the following June.
Cheryl previously revealed that she only revealed her identity to Moroccans five months after they sent messages online.
In an interview with Loose Women in 2017, the soap star said she enjoyed an “old-fashioned” courtship with her 30-year-old toyboy.
She said: ‘We met online and wrote on the computer and spoke on the computer. It was very old fashioned.
“He didn’t know what I did for a living. I didn’t show him my picture. It was five months of chatting before we met.
‘I saw him and it was like ‘ping’. I knew he was the man I was going to marry and I’d been married once before.’
Of the 21-year age difference, Cheryl said that “age doesn’t matter” and “no one blinks when a man does.”
She continued: ‘Thank God we’re not all the same. I think you do what makes you feel good.’
