Kate Spencer arrived in Coronation Street in 2019 as Grace Vickers, the ex of Michael Bailey, and has impressed on the cobbles so far.
And for actress Kate, 28, landing Corrie was a dream role after working hard to focus on her mental health and overhaul her lifestyle by shedding an impressive three stone.
The soap star, who was working at Derby Theatre before joining the ITV programme, shared a look at her weight loss journey on Instagram back in April showing a side by side of herself looking slimmer in 2019 compared to 2014.

Kate opened up in the candid post about how exercise had helped her make a change: "Same girl. Same smile. Same jeans. Very different priorities. 5 years ago today I decided to make a change.
"It hasn’t been all sunshine and lollipops, but nothing feels as good as working hard and achieving feels.
"These last couple of weeks in isolation, I’ve hardly been particularly ‘creative’ (I mean that’s entirely subjective anyway…) but I’ve progressed, made PB’s and hit targets in other aspects of my life that 5 years-ago-me would never have thought possible, so for that, I’m feeling not too shabby."

Since taking up running, Kate, who has also appeared in Doctors, told Daily Star Online that she finds it a "form of therapy" and has completed two half-marathons.
"I started training because I wanted to see physical changes, but I’ve realised there are so many more benefits than just losing weight.
"Mentally, I’m stronger, more confident and more resilient – which are pretty vital in this industry."
She discussed recently how she was training herself to think different about food and exercise after taking part in a race: "Yesterday, I got so angry with myself for over-indulging and mindlessly eating without actually thinking about what I was putting into my body. I didn’t have 1 nice word to say about myself. Today, I ran a half marathon PB.
"We can so unkind to these bodies that house us, yet they are so incredible, adaptable, and ultimately, are the only thing we can count on to be with us until the end.

"Exercise and training has so many benefits – mentally and physically, but using it as punishment for over-eating or to ‘allow’ ourselves to eat/drink certain things is not ok.
"My run today wasn’t to punish myself as it was already planned earlier in the week, but it has definitely reminded me to (try to!) remember all the amazing things my body can do next time I am angry or upset at it. Our bodies are our forever homes, let’s show them a little love."
