Lisa Riley has opened up about her recent weight loss, sharing her annoyance at the fact many people have assumed it is due to a gastric band being fitted.
The former ‘Emmerdale’ star, who lost six stone by cutting out booze and junk food, has also discussed how much healthier she now feels.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, she says: “If one more person asks me about a gastric band then I swear I will be tempted to cut myself open and show people there's nothing there.
“I've had it all: the gastric band; the 'oh, she's obviously done a faddy diet'. And it does upset me, because it feels as if people are calling me a liar when I'm a really honest person. The honest truth is that this is all me.”
While she hasn’t gone under the knife, Lisa does add that she sometimes feels as though she has.
Last month, Lisa appeared on ‘Loose Women’, and ahead of filming, two of the panel accidentally blanked the actress backstage, after failing to recognise her.
Luckily, Lisa laughed the incident off, telling the ladies: “That’s the reaction I never thought I’d ever have in my life! And to see people’s reactions is a real spur-on.”
