Catherine wrote beside her photo on Instagram: “My beautiful #strictly sister @theemmabarton love this lady”
The star showed off her dramatic transformation after swapping junk food for gym time.
Coronation Street actress Catherine, 36, has lost five stone and went from a size 22 to a 10 by ditching calorific treats and hitting the treadmill.
Catherine shot to fame as Eva Price when she turned up in Weatherfield in 2011. Since then, she’s undergone something of a body transformation.
The actress has been very open about staying healthy.
Whilst on Corrie she revealed she ditched Coronation Streets pies and bacon butties to maintain her figure.
She also previously revealed how she stayed fit on set, saying: Its just fitting it around your schedule.
If I was working Id go on walks. I have been known to squat Shayne Ward. Squat a friend.
On night shoots there are a lot of pies and bacon sandwiches floating about but I took stuff with me.
She also opened up aboutr her body transformation in a post on Instagram.
Catherine wrote: “I want to share my little story – Its been such a journey!
“This year I decided to challenge myself (I love to set goals) and do a 12 week Transformation with @up_north_pt … it has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
“The knowledge I have gained for myself and my family is priceless. Yes it was hard, yes I had days when I wanted to throw in the towel… but I didnt – and for that I am super proud of myself.
“Being a working mum is not easy – its incredibly difficult at times – balance doesnt exist. You just manage best you can.”
And while Catherine has denied having any cosmetic procedures, one plastic surgeon is convinced she has gone under the knife.
A surgeon from MYA Cosmetic Surgery told Mirror Online: “Typically, women’s breasts can fluctuate in size due to hormones, weight loss or weight gain.
“Catherine has lost a significant amount of weight over the years, going from a size 22 to a 10, which can often result in a loss of breast tissue.
“In my professional opinion, there is an obvious increase to Catherine’s breasts that suggest she may have undergone a breast enlargement procedure; the upper breast volume has increased quite significantly and they now sit much higher on the chest wall.
“It’s particularly noticeable when you compare these photos to previous images where she appears to have a lack of breast tissue altogether following the weight loss.
“I also believe that Catherine may have undergone the non-surgical treatment of dermal fillers to her lips as she appears to have slightly fuller lips compared to previous images.”
But Catherine’s rep insisted: “She absolutely has not had hasn’t had a breast enlargement or lip fillers.”
The rep also said that if Catherine did have surgery, she’d be open about it.
There are 12 stars remaining in the show and tonight and Alfonso is joining the judging panel.
