Catherine Tyldesley shared a throwback snap from her teenage years on Tuesday -which took place after she lost a lot of weight – and made fun of her ‘no make-up no eyebrows’ look.
The former Coronation Street actress, 37, who previously shed eight stone, said she must have been ‘VERY hormonal,’ to justify her disinterested expression in the photoshoot snap.

Earlier this month, Catherine discussed the prospect of growing her family in an interview with Hello! Magazine, and also touched on how her body felt ‘like it was pregnant’ as she experienced a hormonal imbalance in her body
The TV star said: ‘My body seemed to think it was pregnant. I took so many tests as I was convinced I was actually pregnant and even had morning sickness, but in fact my body was just mimicking a pregnancy.
‘My endocrinologist said she’d never seen such a reaction. It felt like I’d given birth without having a baby. I put on a stone in weight even though I was eating well and training hard. It is only now that I feel I’ve got my body back.’

On the prospect of having more children, the Viewpoint star said: ‘We are so happy as a three and we don’t ever feel like there is anything missing, but would I like another child? Yes, I think I would, so if it happens, then that’s wonderful.’
The Salford native added that she feels ‘very passionate’ about adoption, hailing the process as ‘one of the greatest things you can do for another person.’
Catherine echoed her comments during a Q&A session with fans late last year, stating: ‘I’d like another as some point. I’ve always said I wanted two. Maybe adoption. So many children needing good homes.’
The mother-of-one has been keeping busy since quitting her role of Eva Price on Coronation Street in 2018, appearing on shows such as sitcom Scarborough and ITV police drama Viewpoint.
