“Do you know, in the eight years that I have been there (on Emmerdale), I have never once had a pudding,” she said.
“I can’t. It’s just a slippery slope.”
It seems her character also had an impact on her lifestyle, as she revealed in another interview that wearing Kerry’s tight and skimpy outfits made her want to lose a few pounds.
She told The Mirror: “It was about three years ago when I started to lose weight. I was in skimpy outfits all the time on telly, and the camera also adds weight to you, so I thought I’d do something.
“I started to do a bit of exercise, which I hadn’t done for years. You get a bit older and weight is harder to lose.
“Then I cut the Coca-Cola out and started to notice the difference and then just decided to keep it up.”
