The Birds of a Feather star tells us her weight loss is putting a strain on her marriage
Linda Robson claims to feel the best she ever has at the age of 60, after losing three stone and getting back into size 10 clothes.
But the Loose Women star has recently come under fire for being too thin, and, according to Linda, its not just strangers on the internet who think shes gone too far – her husband of 28 years, Mark Dunford, agrees.
In an exclusive interview, Linda tells us, “My husband keeps saying, Youre too thin, you need to put on some weight.'”
FEELING THE STRAIN
Lindas devotion to the gym, and a sugar-free, alcohol-free lifestyle, has seen her weight plummet in the past 18 months – which Mark was initially really pleased with.
After losing the first couple of stone, Linda confessed, “My husband Mark is just really pleased that Im much healthier now. Hes always gone to the gym.”
Fast forward a few months and Linda has lost another 7Ib, leaving Mark concerned shes now too thin.
“My husband keeps saying, Youre too thin, you need to put on some weight. He thinks Ive lost it in my face, but Im eating really healthily,” she exclusively tells Woman.
Lindas children are concerned, too. “Theyve said, Thats enough now, Mum. You need to calm down.”
It was Lindas dedication to her family that inspired her lifestyle overhaul in the first place, following a diabetes scare.
“Ive got two young grandchildren,” she previously said, discussing her motivation to stop sinking a bottle of wine every night. “Ones nearly two and ones six, and I want to be around for their proms, their engagements and all of that.”
Now its gone from one extreme to the other, as Linda admits to running around the kitchen to hit her daily target of 10,000 steps. The actress family have suggested she should slow down, asking her to calm down on the exercise front.
But Linda insists she has no plans to go any further, saying, “I dont want to lose any more weight. I want to stay 10 stone.”
A CAREER COMEBACK?
Linda believes the key to a lasting marriage is partly down to putting family before work.
“Whenever a job comes in I always ask them, What do you think I should do? There was something that came through and I wanted to do it and they said, No, I dont think you should do it, and they were right. You need that work-home balance.”
But with her new shape – which she says is the best shes ever been in – Linda is no doubt contemplating career options, and tells Woman she wouldnt rule out the chance to star in a soap.
On the possibility of an EastEnders cameo, she says, “Never say never, but I dont know if Id look to do the hours theyre doing.”
NEW LEASE OF LIFE
Feeling more confident than ever, Linda takes pleasure in donating clothes that no longer fit her to the Marie Curie charity, including scarves she used to hide behind.
“It was like a comfort blanket,” she explains. “There are so many scarves Ive not worn for a while. Now its coming to winter, Ill be wearing them for a different reason – to keep me warm, rather than hide behind.”
Now shes in her prime, Linda is doing a sterling job of juggling her home and professional life.
The 60-year-old makes no secret of how much she adores her grandchildren, but she tells us she was in trouble last week for working too much!
“I have nanny duties,” she explains. “Im in trouble because Im doing Loose Women tomorrow so I cant do my nanny duties.”
One thing she wont be passing up the opportunity to do is a Birds of a Feather comeback, which she hints could be happening in 2019.
“Not this year, but its the 30th anniversary next year, so fingers crossed,” she teases. Lets wait and see…
