Laura, from Hazlerigg, Newcastle, has played Kerry since 2012. She is currently expecting a baby with her Emmerdale co-star Mark Jordan, with the new arrival due this month.
The star has managed to lose three stone in the past, her weight loss evident to Emmerdale viewers and on the red carpet.
So, how did she do? Laura used a pretty simple method to lose weight and her journey began with cutting just one thing from her diet.
Laura realised she was drinking too much Coca Cola, a habit she was indulging in many times a day.
After feeling self-conscious about her costumes for Emmerdale, she decided to do something to slim down.
Laura was drinking 212 grams of sugar a day, and a lot of extra calories.
A litre bottle of Coke contains a whopping 800 calories.
The actress claimed to lose a stone “very quickly” after ditching the drink.
After this success, she began exercising more.
She said: “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.”
Another TV star who has lost a lot of weight is The Chase’s Mark Labett aka The Beast.
Posting on Instagram this week, Mark shared a face to face shot of him looking trim.
“Leaner, meaner lockdown with good folks of muscle foods,” he stated in a sponsored post.
“At this rate, I will be the skinniest Chaser.”
