The star admitted to The Mirror that she turned to comfort food during lockdown, and combined with not being able to go to gym classes made her gain weight.
She explained: ‘During the pandemic I started comfort eating and that was my downfall – comfort eating and not being able to go to my fitness classes.
‘When those classes stopped I started eating far too much – it was things that I would probably never bother with. Like I wanted muffins, I wanted croissants, I wanted doughnuts. All of these things that you know you shouldn’t be having and you think it’s making you feel better at the time and it doesn’t.
‘And so slowly, slowly, slowly over the past couple of years, I’ve gone from a size 10 to a size 14…’
Honest: It comes after last month Lorraine spoke out about her weight gain during the pandemic, explaining that she had gone up two dress sizes (pictured left in December 2021 and right in 2015)
She explained how she wanted to wear a red dress to a big ITV event, but was forced to wear a stretchy black number instead after the dress wouldn’t fit over her thighs.
It comes after last year Lorraine wrote in her Hello! column about her weight gain, admitting that it had affected her confidence.
She shared: ‘Now like so many other people I have definitely put on more than a few pounds during this whole pandemic. It’s a combination of not being about to get to my regular exercise classes and indulging in some serious comfort eating.
‘I’ve gone up from a size ten to a size twelve, but I’m beginning to wonder if size actually does matter anymore.
‘I also know that it shouldn’t really matter what number is on the label of your clothes as long as they fit well and make you feel good, but sometimes it really can affect your confidence.’
However, she also spoke to the Mirror, where she confessed that overall she’s not concerned about the extra pounds and doesn’t even own a pair of scales.
She said that despite going from a size ten to a 12 she won’t be counting her calories and will try and shift the extra weight by taking Zumba classes and avoiding sugary snacks.
‘I am not going to beat myself up about it. I don’t have scales so I don’t know how much actual weight I have put on. I always go by how my clothes fit. I don’t think calories should be counted, but I am not stressing about the extra pounds.’
