LETITIA Dean is one of the original cast members of EastEnders and made her debut in the first episode in 1985.
Since then, viewers have seen her character, Sharon Watts, go through marriages, divorces, pregnancies, and even attempted murder.
But one thing that has had viewers hooked lately is 55-year-old Letitia’s impressive weight loss.
The famous EastEnders actress is believed to have gone down four dress sizes and said of the transformation: “I’ve been pampered, polished and plucked.”
Fans regularly take to social media to compliment her, and recently one tweeted, “I don’t think Letitia Dean has ever looked better.”
Another said: “Letitia looks amazing!”
And a third added: “Letitia Dean looks amazing, she inspired me to get fit. She looks like a different person.”
Before deciding to lose weight, Letitia revealed she faced cruel criticism for her looks.
Speaking on the EastEnders spin-off show Secrets from the Square, she said: “I’ve been told quite a lot of horrible things about myself. ‘She’s too fat, the other actors complain they don’t fit on the same set with her’.”
Letitia told it before Closer that running and boxers are now “two of her favorite pastimes” and that she’s also advocated cutting back to 1,300 calories a day.
About her diet, Letitia said she eats high-protein foods like skinless chicken breasts and eats lots of green vegetables.
She said of her diet change, “It’s been amazing. I found I had so much more energy than I used to when I ate junk food.”
