She told Metro newspaper’s Sixty Seconds column: ‘I knew I needed a little help so I went to WW and with the help of others and the app I dropped two dress sizes and managed to get back to my size 10 at the end of January.
‘It was a big deal to get back into my size 10 jeans! I must have gained over a stone and a half – I weighed about 11 – 10 pounds – but for me it wasn’t just about fitting into my chic black dress that wouldn’t go over my bum, but being happy in myself.
“I’ve been to the BAFTAs and really enjoyed the day, but I wouldn’t have gone to the ceremony in early January. I just wouldn’t have had the confidence to be on the podium. Now I feel like going out again!’

Lorraine previously revealed that her weight loss has rekindled her relationship with husband of 22 years Steve.
She explained, “Steve says, ‘I’ve got you back,’ because my energy level has improved. I feel like doing things now, when I used to do some housework on weekends and then collapse in front of the television.”
Lorraine added that Steve enjoys being a part of healthier cooking and adding recipes to his menu while he’s at it.
And while she admits the couple may be having a party but has no intention of renewing their wedding vows for their 30th anniversary in September, she’s said to fit her wedding dress again.
