The actress, who rose to fame playing Mandy Dingle on Emmerdale, shared her incredible weight loss photos with her fans on Twitter.

The 39-year-old said she decided to get in shape after a series of health scares rocked her family.

Her father Terry was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes last year and the soap star tragically lost her mother to cancer in 2012.

“Losing my mum then seeing my dad wired up and nearly losing him and becoming an orphan was a shock to my system," she explained to Bella magazine.

“I don't want to be a statistic. I just want my health to carry on, to live my life to the fullest.”

To tone up, Lisa’s given up drinking alcohol and has taken up exercise including Zumba, walking and yoga.

She explained: “I’m not on a diet – diets don’t work. It’s been about awareness and lifestyle. I’m loads more active than I used to be.”
