Jill Halfpenny is the actress who played Kate Mitchell in Eastenders from 2002 to 2005.
The character stole the heart of Phil Mitchell and the fictional couple tied the knot.
She then went on to star as Izzie Redpath in Waterloo Road from 2006 to 2007.
As she recently discussed new series Dark Money, Jill Halfpenny revealed she is getting more parts than ever.
However, the actress looks very youthful for her age.
Is this down to her diet and fitness regimen?
The actress has previously revealed how she keeps fit and healthy.
Jill told The Sun last year that she is a huge fan of exercise.
She said: “If I’m not working, I’ll go to an hour-long class at 9.30am – anything from conditioning or spin to barre or yoga. The body needs to be kept flexible.”Jill Halfpenny weight loss: Eastenders star and Dark Money actress follows this diet plan (Image: GETTY)Jill Halfpenny weight loss: played Kate Mitchell in Eastenders from 2002 to 2005 (Image: GETTY)
She also revealed what she eats to stay healthy.
She said: “Afterwards I eat breakfast. I might have yoghurt with fruit and honey or toast with scrambled egg, or I might wander to my local cafe and get pancakes.”
Jill revealed a typical lunch is chia pudding or cheese on toast.
For dinner she described a typical meal of harissa chicken with barley, coriander, tomatoes and beans.
Jill is only the old soap star to lose an impressive amount of weight, Jennie McAlpine’s weight loss has impressed.Jill Halfpenny weight loss: She then went on to star as Izzie Redpath in Waterloo Road from 2006 (Image: GETTY)
In 2009, she told the Mirror: “I don’t go in for all the diet plans and worrying yourself silly over how much you weigh. Ice cream is bad, salad is good – it’s not rocket science!”
She explained eating healthy foods helped her transform her figure and slim down by three dress sizes.
Emmerdale’s Laura Norton’s weight loss has also been hugely successful.
The soap star revealed it was one particularly unhealthy habit making her pile on the pounds.
Liquid calories are often forgotten about but Laura cut out fizzy drinks after realising they were causing her to gain weight.
