Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn jokes she’s turned into a ‘chunk’ in lockdown

Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn has joked she’s turned into a ‘chunk’ after gaining weight in lockdown.

The actress, 26, admitted she’d been enjoying more treats during isolation despite trying to maintain her fitness regime, after previously unveiling her one stone weight loss in January.

Katie also revealed she’d be open to reprising her role as Sinead Tinker on the soap from beyond the grave, after the character was tragically killed off last year.

Katie told The Sun she had regained some of the weight she lost during the COVID-19 lockdown, but had now begun of focus on her fitness again.

Admitting she’d been ‘comfort eating’ during the first few weeks of lockdown, Katie said: ‘I tried to stop that and focus on my fitness, but I don’t think I’ve come out a hunk… I’d say I was a chunk and now I’m getting back to normal.

‘I’m definitely not a drunk. I’ve drunk about twice in lockdown.’

Katie showed off her one stone weight loss earlier this year after completing a 12-week transformation challenge, which included increasing her activities to walking 15,000 steps a day.

Speaking to MailOnline, Katie said: ‘I just wanted to be healthier really, I kind of let my health and fitness take a back seat when I was filming because I was heavily filming all the time.

‘I just put on some weight and I noticed I wasn’t feeling very healthy. I wanted to kick-start my health basically, so yeah I felt amazing for it, I’m glad I’ve done it. 

‘I think your health’s important. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been eating more than I normally do, and I have put a bit of weight on, I think everybody has! But I make sure I’m training all the time, I’m active, just so it’s still going round.’
