Emmerdale star Laura Norton, best known for playing the sassy and hilarious Kerry Wyatt in the soap, has revealed the secret behind some dramatic weight loss – she has given up an addiction to Coca-Cola.
The actress had previously been drinking up to four litres of the sugary drink during a shift at work but has now ditched the beverage and has shed the pounds as a result.
She told The Mirror: I had been addicted since I was a teenager. At its worst, I used to drink two 2-litre bottles of Coke a day. I know now how much sugar is in it. One day I was at home in my pyjamas and I wanted my dad to go to the off-licence to get me some Coke. I think he just thought it had gone too far.
Laura added that she feels lucky to still have a tooth in her head.
She has shed a total of three stone since overcoming the habit and it seems she feels a lot better now that she doesnt drink it.
On screen, Laura, who is dating co-star Mark Jordon who plays Daz, has been at the centre of a heavy storyline involving the kidnap of Amelia Spencer which is a far cry from her usual comedy capers, which leave fans crying with laughter.
