The Coronation Street star references the fact that she used to be overweight in a new British Bake Off themed Instagram post...
Catherine Tyldesley is one the most well-known faces on Coronation Street.
The 32-year-old has played barmaid Eva Price since 2011, and is currently in the midst of a cheating storyline.
Eva’s boyfriend Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward) recently had a one-night stand with Maria Sutherland (Samia Ghadie), although Eva’s yet to find out…
Despite Cath being so recognisable on screen, the Coronation Street actress has always been open about the fact that she actually used to look pretty different.
She was once a size 22, telling the Daily Mirror: ‘I was treated differently. I was always the fat, funny friend.’
Catherine gave us a glimpse of her old body yesterday, when she shared a jokey video of herself baking to Instagram last night.
Yep. The Great British Bake Off fever is real, people.
The clip showed Cath’s pal stirring the contents of his bowl, as a cardboard cut-out of Catherine rose up beside him.
Alongside the post, she’d written the caption: ‘Fat Cath tried to make a come-back #bakeoff.’

Aw. While we think Catherine’s transformation is incredible, it’s clear she’s always been a total beauty.
Fans agreed, with comments including: ‘You’re so lovely! You’re my inspiration.’
Another wrote: ‘I was amazed when I heard that this perfect Lady had the same issues as some of us are facing. To see the way she looks now is a real inspiration I have her fat cath stuck in my mood board for when I need a pic up! [sic].’
Also loving the fact that she’s as big of a GBBO fan as us – is there anyone that’s NOT obsessed right now?!
