EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy explained the London Marathon training has taught her how to eat and be comfortable with her body after losing three stone.

The actress, 35, joined her EastEnders co-stars to raise money for the UK Dementia Research Institute amid TV legend Dame Barbara Windsor’s Alzheimer’s battle.

She said: ‘I have learnt how to eat and how to be comfortable with who I am… You get wiser as you get older and I just feel much more confident and comfortable.’

During her time in the limelight, Natalie has been a yo-yo dieter ranging from a size 16 to a 4-6 at her smallest in 2007.

The CBB star released a fitness DVD Then And Now in 2008 but she later revealed it was an unhealthy relationship with laxatives that led to her dramatic weight loss.

BBC’s Natalie asserted at the time she was ‘much happier’ when her weight crept back up to a size 14.

But she dropped the pounds once again as she slimmed down to nine stone in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Eliza, now eight.

Natalie released a second fitness DVD The Perfect 10 in 2013 and she showed off the results of her fitness labours on the red carpet.
